Introduced as a production boat at the 2014 RYA Dinghy Show, the D-Zero is a single-handed performance dinghy. The boat is based on the successful Punk dinghy, designed by Dan Holman.Measuring 4.2m long with a beam of 1.42m, weighing 42kg and carrying 8.1m2 sail the D-Zero is a fresh approach to traditional single-handed sailing. Free from gimmicks, vices and clutter it’s a refined and ultimately very rewarding sailboat. Supplied with an up-to-date mylar mainsail from North Sails One Design, carbon spars from CompoTech and a Harken fit-out as standard throughout. The D-Zero has been production-engineered, to their usual very high standard, by Devoti Sailing, manufacturer of every Olympic Medal winning Finn for the past 5 Olympic cycles.
