One Design Fleets in Michigan

One Design is a term used to refer to models (classes) of sailboats which are manufactured and raced under a set of standard specifications. These specifications are established by a governing class association, in consultation with the boat's manufacturer. Sailboats adhering to their class's standards are generally permitted to participate in class-sanctioned regattas.

 

Below is a collection of some of the one-design sailboat classes that are popular in Michigan. Listed along some features of the boat, are known Michigan dealers for new sailboats, as well as locations of active fleets. Links and contact information for the various yacht and sail clubs can be found on our Yacht/Sail Club Page. Clicking on the class insignia will take you to the home page for the class association. To search for used boats available in Michigan, please check our Classifieds or use our statewide Craigslist Search Tool.
