The Albacore is a lightweight, planing dinghy. Sloop rigged with main and 3/4 height jib, the Albacore is typically raced with a crew of two, but the cockpit has room for day sailing with up to 4 adults.

A pivoting centerboard and kick up rudder allow for easy use in shallow or weed-laden waters. Built for safety, the Albacore has built in flotation allowing it to be self-rescued and sailed dry in a few minutes following a capsize. Most boats are built of durable fibreglass laminate construction. Some boats have foam core /glass laminate construction for long term hull rigidity. Hot and cold molded plywood hulls are also available.
