Anyone can rig, sail, race and transport a Flying Scot. Stable, unsinkable, fast, you can launch in less than a foot of water. Beginner or expert, young or old, male or female!
Over forty years of sailing and marine construction experience produced the Flying Scot, a Sailing Hall of Fame design. Its perfect for family trips, single-handed fun, and an excellent racer. And its a good investment. See what our owners have told us about owning a Scot.
Designed by the internationally famous racer Gordon K. "Sandy" Douglass, each Flying Scot is hand-crafted with the highest quality materials and methods. The first Scot ever built still wins races! And there is a large Flying Scot community.

Flying Scots Are Fast - A Racing Thoroughbred, Spinnaker-ready
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 planing hull!
Flying Scots Are Stable and Safe - Great option for Famiy sailing
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.
