Sailboat - The Tribute


Tribute Sailboat Printable Brochure

This sprightly little sailing dinghy is a throwback to the days when a sailboat wasn't a sailboat unless it had at least two sails, no matter its size. Yet, here is the sloop rigged Tribute with modern lines, produced of contemporary materials and methods.

Its modest dimensions (13'2" length) belie its capacity for sailboat fun.  This is a sailboat that was designed to be easily sailed by one person but will carry up to 3.  The Tribute has a generously sized cockpit with molded in fore and aft seating. All corners and edges are rounded for maximum comfort.

The Tribute comes standard with these features:

  • Harken blocks and fittings
  • Roller furling jib
  • Loose footed main sail
  • Molded in mast well
  • Cockpit drain with plug
  • Swing-up rudder with tiller extension (hiking stick)
  • Rotationally molded dagger board
  • Molded in transom handles and bow cross hole
