Contact our team at BoatSales@WestCoastSailing.net for details!

When you’re trying to win at the highest levels of Opti Racing - you need to buy the best Optimist. Each McLaughlin Pro Racer is built to order and incorporates the latest developments in design and class approved features. The Pro Racer includes N1 Foils, BlackGold Spars, and your choice of sail from North, Olimpic, Optiparts, or J Sails. Additional options can be tailored to your preference, including custom deck colors and clear transom, creating an individual and customized boat unique for you. The Pro Racer is designed and built with the top end competitor in mind.

McLaughlin 'WORLD CHAMPION' Hull - The Pro-Racer hull is built on a Thursday to allow 4 days curing in the mold over the weekend. After it’s removed, McLaughlin refines the bottom, edges and centerboard slot. Customers can specify almost anything on a Pro Racer - including sailing equipment, non skid aggressiveness and cosmetics such as metal flake, clear transom and custom gelcoat. It includes standard features top sailors need to have to compete: the strongest mast step attachment, precision appendage alignment check on every hull, and wall to wall non-skid. If it is the best, it is on your Optisailors Pro-Racer.
