The Weta is unique - no doubt about it. Trimaran stability and speed in a trailerable package!

Overview

The Weta is a unique boat in many ways. Designed so that one person could sail and race solo, or two adults to fit easily. The Weta is lightweight, with a stable design and simply controls. The Weta is fast, but not intimidating, and it is versatile without being overly complicated. Over 1100 sold worldwide, learn more about how the Weta is like no other..

A modern and easy-to- sail trimaran, the Weta is a New Zealand designed fiberglass dinghy with Main, Jib, and Spinnaker. There is no other boat quite like it in terms of versatility - it sails easily with between one to three sailors. The uniquely designed hulls provide stability and speed without the need for a trapeze. A boat of the year winner with continuous improvements since launch - the newest Wetas (2017 onward) are infused and lighter than before. Available options now include: 9.3M squaretop main, 8.4M racing main, and 6.5M mainsail, as well as furling jib and and larger spinnaker. It can honestly do it all. The Weta can be broken down from full sailing width to fit on its included dolly, or our custom flatbed trailer. It's easy to travel with, and move around on the dolly or with a trailer. The quality and attention to detail becomes obvious as the Weta tackles a full range of conditions with confidence and ease. Close to 1,200 Wetas are sailing worldwide, and there are 120+ Wetas now in Western North America.

FAQs

I've seen this boat before, and they've sold like 1200 so far. Who owns and sails Wetas?

The Weta family is diverse, but it's also familiar. Lots of ex catamaran sailors, or folks from larger multi-hull backgrounds. Lots of smart people who want a well designed and thoughtful boat to go fast and enjoy for years.

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.
