Maritimo launches sail boats – for a good cause

Maritimo, Australia's premier luxury boat builder, has completed a new range of boats of a very different kind.

Staff at the Coomera, Queensland, company have turned their skilled hands to building a fleet of 15 Sabot junior training dinghies for the Moreton Bay Boat Club in Brisbane.

A Sabot is small fibreglass single-sail dinghy, 8 feet (2.4 metres) in length and 3ft 9in (1.14 metres) in beam, officially described as a cat rigged hard chine pram dinghy (two blunt ends) carrying a sail of 36 square feet.

Maritimo General Manager Martin Lewis handed over the first eight Sabot dinghies at a ceremony at the Moreton Bay Boat Club in Scarborough in northern Brisbane and joined the club's young sailors in a run around the buoys on the bay.
