The Weta is Pure Sailing Enjoyment
2017 Weta Features and Benefits
The Weta is a very social boat. So while Weta are serious about design, craftsmanship, and the materials we use, the objective is fun. Even if you’re racing your Weta in serious competitions, we want to make sure you’re enjoying yourself. And if you want to introduce kids – or anyone – to the joys of sailing, a Weta is the perfect boat. Deliberately crafted for stability and versatility, the Weta is easy to sail with the family. The kids feel safe, and they learn the most important thing about sailing: that it’s tonnes of fun!
Fun and Easy to Sail
Sail on your own terms; push the boat hard and approach speeds of 20 knots! Take it easy and you can get a novice to take the helm (the trick is getting it back from them!).
Well balanced and easy to helm on all points of sailing, the Weta is a great boat to learn to sail with no boom to hit your head. Take the Jib off to de-power in strong winds or to let the kids sail on their own. Once on the water simply unfurl the gennaker and blast the Weta into the sunset.
The stable and forgiving trimaran platform gives the best of both worlds and it's comfortable as you want it - lie back on the trampolines or sit on the floats - no abs of steel required.
Safe and secure
The Weta has an open cockpit that is safe and secure for kids learning to sail. Sit with your feet in the cockpit and sail for hours on end in comfort, great for anyone less mobile. Being a trimaran the Weta
is very stable with little risk of capsize.
Get Weta in no time! - Stow to go in only 23 minutes
Lightweight and simple, rig and launch by yourself in under 25 minutes. See the video proof here.
When it’s time to go, the Weta packs down to the footprint of a Laser on it's custom fit, lightweight aluminium trolley.
Sail the Weta single-handed or in any combination of kids, teens and adults - the Weta accommodates
up to three adults easily. Use various main, jib and gennaker sail options to suit yourself and the conditions.
The Weta is a very exciting, versatile recreational yacht. Sail the Weta like a skiff, fully powered upwind then take the jib off and let the kids have a blast.
Easy to Transport
At 1.7m wide on the beach trolley the Weta will fit in any garage with ease. And it fits on any flat bed trailer with ramps or the custom skid trailer.
Despite the light weight construction, the Weta is built to last by Singapore-based dinghy specialists, Xtreme Sailing Products, using high quality components from leading suppliers such as North Sails, Ronstan, Nairn and Kilwell Fibretube.
