Flying Scots Are Fast

The late Gordon Douglass is an internationally known racing champion, so he designed the Scot for speed. The Scot is a low-displacement design (she sits shallow in water) and she has a flat, tapered shape in the stern which allows her to plane. This means she will come out of the water and is not limited to her waterline hull-speed. With over 200 square feet of sail area, she has the "engine" to move well in any wind speed. Get her on a beam-reach with 15 knots of wind, and experience the thrill of a

Flying Scots Are Stable and Safe

The Scot is not a flopsy acrobatic design; the photo at left illustrates the Scot's stability. Her slightly tunneled hull design, hard bilges and weighted centerboard provide a strong righting moment. And with over 600 lbs of reserve bouyancy, the Flying Scot is unsinkable. The wide side deck and seat allow the Scot to take a knock- down with little or no water in the boat, and one person can easily right her in the water.
