Skeeta MY2019 is the progression from the Skeeta Limited Edition (LE 2018), of which only 19 were built.

Due to its success, and demand for more, we have put a brand new Skeeta into production. The MY2019 is designed with the same philosophy of simplicity, functionality and performance.

For all current Skeeta LE 2018 owners, click here for documentation regarding your limited edition boat.

Skeeta is the very latest, ‘3rd Generation’ foiling dinghy that incorporates all-round performance. Sailors are no longer left waiting for a breeze to go sailing. The Skeeta is fun and capable of sailing in all safe wind ranges. It is much more stable than narrow skiffs and can be sailed without hydrofoils, making it far more versatile as an all-purpose dinghy. The hull is simple, robust, unsinkable and quick to rig.

 

Skeeta is suited to sailors of all levels: from beginners to professionals. Add the foils and it is a highly-developed but forgiving foiling machine with amazing performance, close to that of the International Moth. Sailors can plane upwind and foil-tack with the best of them!

The Scow Hull

The iconic scow shape has been around for many generations. Skeeta's hull shape has been optimised for displacement sailing and foiling through more than 50 years of in-house scow development by Jim French and Dr Ian Ward.

The low deck height makes it incredibly easy for people of all ages to be able to get on board quickly and safely. The cockpit area also has padded EVA foam for comfort and grip. 

The Foils

Skeeta's foiling system is a culmination of more than 20 years' development with freely-pivoting foils. It has been designed by Skeeta Foiling Craft using Glide Free’s patented technology. This system provides low drag and minimises the risk of crashes experienced by most other foiling systems. At the heart of the control system is a fully-retractable bow wand, which provides unparalleled control and versatility. All this means there is no need to adjust the rudder's angle of attack whilst sailing.

The vertical foils are fully-retractable and do not interfere with the boom when leaving and returning to shore. The lifting foils can be easily clipped on or off, all by the push of a button, meaning there is no need to tip the boat over when rigging or launching.

 

Sailors can fully-adjust the wand on-the-fly, increasing or reducing the foiling ride-height to the desired level. This allows the boat to immediately and safely return to displacement mode in the event of surprising weather conditions like stormy winds.   

The Wings

Skeeta's wings can easily and quickly be removed in less than five seconds. Just one pin holds them in place, making set-up even quicker. The trampolines are highlighted with bright orange stripes for safety, and come pre-assembled.

The Rig

The high-performance, over-rotating rig is the product of many years of development. It uses a vang track to dramatically reduce pressure on the mast, reducing the chance of breakages and uncontrolled sail manipulation, whilst still maintaining the high leech tension required for foiling. 

The two-piece carbon fibre mast features a halyard designed specifically to make rigging and de-rigging a breeze. Skeeta's rig has a Medium Carbon Mast Tip for displacement sailing, and a Stiff Carbon Mast Tip for foiling. 

The mast bases are of different lengths, to suit the sail size, and all tips and bases are easily interchangeable. Both foiling versions come with adjustable spreaders as standard, allowing sailors of different weights to be competitive in the same class. 

All models are pre-assembled and ready to hit the water out of the box.

All foiling systems are pre-set, rig up in 15 minutes and go sailing!
