Laser 1 (ILCA 7, 6 & 4) Boat Sales & Information

ILCA Boat Sales - photo showing ILCA7 Laser sailing dinghies racing offshore

The ILCA is a single-handed racing dinghy. Each dinghy is virtually identical whether they are brand new or 10 years old, meaning that the sailor wins the race, not the boat. The ILCA is a challenging boat that rewards athleticism, subtle steering and trimming techniques, as well as tactical excellence. It is a singlehanded Olympic class boat for both men and women and is sailed at the club, national and international levels. With over 200,000 boats in 140 countries, it is the world’s most popular adult and youth racing sailboat.

Is it a Laser 1 or an ILCA7?

ILCA is an abbreviation of “International Laser Class Association”. The “Laser” was first designed by Ken Bruce in the early 1970s. At that time – LASER – was a product name – today we know it as a huge international brand behind many other popular dinghies including the Laser Bug and the Dart 16 catamaran. When navigating the ILCA waters it can appear a little confusing – ILCA ? Laser ? Basically, unless racing at the highest international level, just remember an ILCA 7 is a Laser 1 with the largest standard mainsail – an ILCA 6 utilises the mid-sized Radial mainsail and the ILCA 4 uses the smallest 4.7 mainsail. All models use the same hull, foils, boom and upper mast section – it’s just the lower mast section that needs to be changed.

ILCA7 – Laser 1 Gallery

The ILCA Laser is probably the most popular dinghy on the planet (or maybe that’s the Sunfish). The photos below show various Laser 1 previously advertised on this website.. The other images illustrate the raw power and exhilaration experienced when racing the Laser 1 down wind in rough seas.

If you can't find one here... try eBay

It might not be the first place that springs to mind when buying or selling a dinghy - but it's definitely worth looking. We've found some great boats on eBay. My last Topper Topaz Race X came from eBay and it was £400 cheaper than similar elsewhere. Click the banner below to browse the latest listings. People sometimes don't know precisely what it is they're selling ... try a few searches using different phrases. Start with the obvious - CLASS - eg. Laser or Topper or SuperNova etc.
