The Bug is a confidence inspiring junior training boat that is highly versatile. The Laser Bug can be sailed, rowed or motored with an optional outboard motor, thus providing the ability to be a trainer, a tender, and adventure boat or a racer.
The Bug is renowned for its outstanding upwind performance and superior downwind control, it combines performance and style all while maintaining an incredibly stable platform for learning to sail.
An exceptional design for those looking to enhance their sailing skills and, if they wish, eventually compete in racing events. The windsurfer-like agility and quickness will keep your young sailor hooked.
Durable triple-layer polyethylene stackable hull
Durable dacron sail

For easier boat park manoeuvrability you can also purchase extendable aluminium carry handles which extend from the transom drain ports. These work perfectly with the integrated wheel fitted at the front so the boat can be moved like a wheel barrow.
