At 15 feet (4.55 m) and a lightweight 176 lb (80 kg) all up, the Musto Skiff can reach speeds of over 20 knots, making it one of the fastest single-handed sailing dinghies in the world. Features include an asymmetric spinnaker, wings and racks. As with all skiffs, the deck layout is extremely simple, allowing the skipper to concentrate on boat speed. Double-ended control lines are led to the racks so the sail can be adjusted on the fly.
The Musto Skiff was designed by Joachim Harpprecht for the 2000 Olympic Class Trials in Quiberon, France and won every race in the singlehanded dinghy competition. In 2006, this sensational monohull was granted ISAF Recognized Status by the ISAF Council. Today, up to seven nations compete in events held throughout Europe and the UK.
