Challenger 13


An attractive and versatile dinghy of traditional styling, the Challenger 13 offers lots of fun for the whole family.   

Multi-purpose, she can be rowed, motored or sailed.

Traditional lapstrake construction, but built with modern plywood and epoxy materials.

More challenging to build than stitch & glue boats, so use her to expand your boatbuilding skills.

She can be a great quality time project for Dad with Junior's help or a practical winter project, to fight off cabin fever.

Built-in flotation compartments and a simple sail plan make her great for learning to sail, whatever your age.
