The Vago was designed by Jo Richards and is manufactured and marketed by LaserPerformance. The boat can be sailed either single or double handed, it has an asymmetric spinnaker and a single trapeze. The hull is of rotomolded construction, making it incredably durable. The design of the Vago achieves the perfect balance between performance and robust build quality, offering exciting skiff like performance in a affordable package. In addition, the dinghy can be purchased with several rig configurations, making it highly versatile and perfect for the improving sailor wishing to learn more advanced sailing techniques in a controlled manner.
The Laser Vago’s sail plan is interchangeable allowing sailors to sail single- or double-handed and upgrade as their skill level increases. With the option of standard or race sails (XD Rig), the Vago is designed for both leisure and performance sailing. The single line launch and retrieval gennaker makes gennaker use a breeze for sailors of all levels. A larger mainsail and gennaker make downwind sailing more exhilarating. A single trapeze allows for single-handed or double-handed sailing.
The Vago comes fitted with a jib furling system, which not only enables sailors to reef the jib, but also makes launching and recovery very easy. This is further complimented by a single line reefing system, which is compatible with the Standard mainsail configuration. The cockpit feels very roomy considering the size of the dinghy, which is due to the deep cockpit, high boom and Gnav vang system (freeing up important headroom).
A unique combination of style, versatility and hydrodynamic ability provide high-end performance, managable control and comfort. The sub-chine area of the hull promotes early planing and the tuned rocker profile enhances maneuverability. Flared sides on deck level provide good righting moments, enhancing buoyancy and added cockpit space. The Polyethylene Tri-Skin construction offers durability, a hard-wearing exterior and minimum maintenance.
The Vago offers the perfect platform for sailors looking to progress their skill set into asymmetric and trapeze sailing. The multiple rig configurations allow each discipline to be honed individually, building your confidence in a controlled manor. The performance of the XD rig is equally impressive, ensuring bundles of fun that you will never tire of!
