Magno Sailing Dinghy

All-Rounder. Ideal family boat and club racer

The Magno will appeal to all the family. She is user friendly from day one, the dynamic yet forgiving hull is married to an easily controlled rig that is prefect for less experienced sailors but will also give you that extra oomph on demand.

As with all Howlett designs, stability is reassuring and seasoned sailors will quickly appreciate the pedigree handling, impressive performance potential and high specification throughout.

And the furling jib also means you can transform the Magno to a powerful singlehander.
