KidShip Fleet

KidShip’s fleet includes a range of boats carefully chosen to enhance a young sailor’s learning experience. Fast, responsive, and most of all FUN, our fleet of boats takes our new sailors from the stable, dry American 14.6 to the fast and challenging Laser Radial.

American 14.6

The American 14.6 has a comfortable cockpit which easily accommodates three sailors and an instructor. It has a mainsail and a jib, so every member of the crew has a job. Not only are KidShippers learning the basics of sailing, they are also working as a team. The Americans are used in our Half-Day Li’l Sailors, Half-Day Sailing Adventures, and Full Day Sailing Essentials camps.

Laser Pico

New to our fleet in 2023! The Laser Pico is a comfortable, stable sailboat that can be sailed smoothly in any weather condition. This boat is great for beginner and intermediate sailors alike with its spacious cockpit, high boom, removable jib, and auto-bailers.

RS Zest

The RS Zest is an intermediate camp favorite. Light, fast, and simple, this boat is great for beginners to enhance their skills and is a great step between the American and the Laser. The Zest is the perfect boat for our intermediate students working to fine tune their skills on a boat more exciting than the American.

Laser Radial

If you've watched Olympic sailing, you probably saw Lasers being raced by world-class sailors. KidShip sailors who have already completed our Intermediate Sailing course can hone their skills by single-handing the fast, sensitive, and technical 14’ Laser Radial. It is the perfect platform for learning the more technical skills of our Advanced Sailing course.

Hobie Getaway

The Hobie Getaway is the perfect boat for beginner to intermediate campers who want to learn to sail a multi-hull sailboat. This boat has a main-sail and roller-furling jib, along with trampolines and hiking benches. These beach launched boats will take you down to the water and practically fly across the surface. Campers must take at least one season of Level 1: Sailing Essentials before taking Level 2: Hobie Sailing.

Rainbow 24

The Rainbow 24s are the boats we use for Down the River day, part of Level 1: Sailing Essentials when the sailors plan a trip to a nearby anchorage. Rainbows are keelboats with comfortable cockpits perfect for carrying four or five sailors, an instructor, lunches, and gear for a picnic at the location they choose as their destination.
