The Weta is a 14’6″ fibreglass/foam composite trimaran with a boomless main, jib and roller furling gennaker. It can be sailed single handed or with four people. When rigged it has a beam of 11’6″, but when put away on its beach trolley, the beam is just 5’6″.
Designed in New Zealand, the Weta is a boat that one person can easily manage on their own – from rigging to sailing in high winds – yet still enjoy performance sailing. There are minimal control lines and it is quick and easy to rig by one person. Today the Weta is used in an incredibly versatile way – ranging from top one design racing, family day sailing, a sailing resort boat and for adult and children learn to sail.
