Fun. Fast. EasyLearn More
Hand-crafted – this is no “machine-built boat” – the composite foam sandwich hulls with carbon spars and beams delivers the perfect pairing of rigidity and lightweight performance. Expertly made for maximum enjoyment and minimum fuss, whether you’re sailing all out and solo, mixing it up with the family or teaching the kids to sail, the Wētā is simple to sail, surprisingly quick, and an absolute ton of fun.
Unlike other dinghies, the Wētā is the boat everyone can use – in almost any conditions – all in one compact, easy package.
The Wētā comes with everything you need to go sailing – three sails, custom aluminium beach trolley, sail bags, carbon rudder stock, carbon foils and custom foil bag.
The Wētā packs down to the footprint of a Laser on a custom fit, lightweight beach trolley.
Lightweight and simple, rig and launch by yourself in 20 minutes.
Wētā has an active strong base of racing fleets across the world.
Redesigned by Norths in 2017, the bi-radial cut mainsails provide manageable high performance in all conditions. The Standard 8.3sqm Sail is great for beginners or strong winds. The Square Top (SQ) 9.3sqm Sail gives more speed in light winds and effortless power up to 20 knots. A furling jib and smaller mainsail are optional.
Standard on new Wētā. A game changer. Make life easier during tacks, gybes and mark roundings. Easy to install as a retrofit.
Screecher furler cleat on cockpit side, swaged stays, Liros ropes and optional hiking strap.
In most dinghies you quickly get tired when the wind gets up, but the Wētā is comfortable to sail in nearly all conditions, whatever your ability or mobility.
With a vertical join, the clean look float has strong internal construction. Killwell carbon beams enable a precision fit with the main hull.

It's put an ear to ear grin on my face every single day since I've come back from the games. I look at this thing and I go it's 30 knots, it's 5 knots, whatever it is I'm going out there just to have so much fun

It's quick, solidly built, incredibly stable and forgiving, and easier to rig than a Laser. When it comes to the fun meter, the Wētā has it pegged.
I wanted to let you know that my lady friend Stephanie got her new Wētā on Friday and got to sail it in decent winds on Sunday. Today she told me that while she was telling a friend about how much she liked it last night, she realised she was hopping up and down. If that's not a rousing endorsement for the boat I don't know what is.
The Laser and the Hobie have always been seen as the worlds all purpose recreation boats. Having sailed the Wētā I can see that these guys have incorporated all the strong characteristics of both. A high performance boat, it is exciting, forgiving and easy to sail, while being simple and compact.
