McLaughlin SailCube

(No reviews yet) Write a Review


Lead time varies based on quantity - but generally expect 6-8 weeks from order to delivery.

Programs that still use Pram style boats often chose plastic boats like the Pram to reduce maintence headaches.


A traditional pram design built for the rigors of program and club use. The SailCube is a singlehanded junior training boat with rigging similar to an optimist, but with the durability of rotomolded plastic. The majority of the parts found on the SailCube are interchangeable with standard optimist equipment. A favorite of camps and clubs, the SailCube is low maintenance and a cost effective solution for getting more kids on the water.

3-Ply Rotomolded Plastic Hull

    • The 3 layer polyethylene plastic hull is strong and durable, while remaining lighter than other trainers.

Compatible with Optimist Equipment

    • SailCube rigging is designed to swap in and out of an Optimist, and vice versa.
    • With nearly the same dimensions as an Optimist, existing storage solutions, covers, and dollies will work with the SailCube.

Boat Delivery is going to be expensive, isn't it?

Despite their size, we are able to ship most boats around North America safely and inexpensively. While boats don't qualify for free shipping, we do subsidize the cost for each customer to keep it reasonable. To see your exact cost, add a boat to your cart and it will show an exact flat rate cost as you checkout. Typically, small boats ship for $300-$600, medium sized boats ship for $400-$800, and larger boats, such as the RS Venture or RS21, ship for $700-$1200.
