Byte

The Byte sailboat is a fast and fun singlehanded one-design dinghy. It was designed to be an affordable performance boat that could cater to sailors of a greater weight range than other boats in its category. Byte sailboats provide an all-important first step for young sailors outgrowing the Optimist. The controls for vang, outhaul, and cunningham are all led to either side of the boat’s deck with multi-purchase, ball bearing block systems. The vang can be adjusted, on a full plane, from the cockpit, effortlessly! The Byte can be upgraded with a Byte CII carbon fiber mast and mylar sail as the sailor progresses and desires a higher performance boat.
