Sunfish Laser Performance information

Designed by Alex Byran and Cortlandt Heyniger in 1953 and originally built out of plywood, the Sunfish® is the world’s most popular sailboat, with more than a quarter-million sold by 1995 when it was inducted into the American Sailboat Hall of Fame.

The legendary dinghy’s construction switched from plywood to fiberglass in 1960, and incremental refinements have been introduced over the years. Today’s Sunfish® is essentially identical to the ones that were sailed hard and put away wet back in the 1960s. The net result is an international class that sanctions more than 1,000 regattas a year and a design that’s as equally suited to racing as it is to day sailing.
