Laser Pico Boat Sales ⏬⏬

The Laser Pico dinghy is a versatile and user-friendly sailboat designed for beginners, families, and sailing schools. Introduced in the late 1990s by the Laser Performance company, the Pico is known for its durability, stability, and ease of use, making it an excellent choice for those new to sailing. Constructed from robust polyethylene, the Pico is resistant to impacts and requires minimal maintenance, ensuring a long lifespan even with heavy use. Its simple rigging and forgiving handling characteristics make it ideal for teaching the basics of sailing and for casual recreational use.

Performance Data – Sailing Experience

The Laser Pico has a Portsmouth Yardstick number of approximately 1330, reflecting its moderate performance capabilities suitable for learners and recreational sailors. The boat can be sailed single-handedly or with a crew of two, making it flexible for different sailing experiences. It features a mainsail and an optional jib, which allows sailors to practice with a more complex sail setup as they gain confidence and skill. The Pico's stability and ease of righting after a capsize further enhance its appeal as a training boat.

Strong European and UK Fleets

The Laser Pico is popular worldwide, particularly in the United Kingdom and Europe, where it is widely used by sailing clubs, schools, and holiday centres. Its accessibility and affordability make it a common sight at sailing venues, and its active class association helps to organize events and support the Pico sailing community. The boat's emphasis on ease of use and safety has made it a staple in introductory sailing programmes, ensuring that many new sailors have their first experiences on the water in a Pico.

Laser Pico Alternatives

Two other boats with similar performance characteristics to the Laser Pico are the RS Feva and the Topper. The RS Feva is a modern, two-person dinghy designed for youth sailing and training. It features a mainsail, jib, and an optional asymmetric spinnaker, offering a slightly more advanced setup while maintaining user-friendly handling. With a Portsmouth Yardstick number of around 1244, the RS Feva provides a step up in performance for sailors looking to progress from the Pico.

The Topper, another single-handed dinghy, is designed for young sailors and beginners. Its simple rigging, durable construction, and ease of handling make it a direct competitor to the Pico, with a Portsmouth Yardstick number of approximately 1369. Both the RS Feva and Topper offer excellent alternatives for those seeking similar sailing experiences and performance levels.
