1976 Fiberglass Unlimited Optimist Pram Dinghy Stackable located in Florida for sale

7.7' Fiberglass Unlimited Optimist Pram Dinghy Stackable


One of a kind, all fiberglass full size Optimist Pram which triple stacks into a footprint that is only 63 long by 25 wide. Professionally built from an Optimist mold using hand laid fiberglass for the best strength and lightness. The complete hull only weighs 66 pounds and the three individual components of the hull weigh 28, 26, and 18 pounds which makes handling the individual parts very easy. Instead of having to look over a dinghy tied on the foredeck and risk loss or damage in a storm, this dinghy can easily be stored below on a bunk or possibly in a locker on a larger boat. Assembly is quick and easy using 3 stainless bolts with wing nuts for the two large hull parts and 6 to connect the bow section. An all fiberglass U channel slides over the top of the joints to add additional strength while a foam neoprene rubber seal is between all of the parts to seal the lower bolt holes and prevent chafe between the parts. A Polyester and rubber bonded rubrail prevents scratches. When assembled the Dinghy feels like a one pc. dinghy. The hard chine hull shape makes the boat very stable and the weight carrying ability is quite good. Unlike open hard dinghies, because the hull is divided with the partition that runs near the center of the hull, the dinghy is actually more stable with water in the bottom since water cannot slosh from side to side. The dinghy tows and rows well. I am including a set of collapsible oars finished in Awlgrip with stainless hardware that stow really well. For the best rowing experience use 8 long spoon oars. The transom has been reinforced for an outboard, I have used up to 4hp which will plane the dinghy nicely with a light load. Flotation is provided for the two large hull parts Port and Starboard which will support an outboard motor if the hull is flooded. Potential to add a sailing kit to this dinghy if desired. Asking $1,400.00 but will consider offers. Contact James or Joann Alton at or call 321-917-5920
