The Flying Scot Sailboat is built to your specifications!




Over forty years of sailing and marine construction experience produced the Flying Scot®, a Sailing Hall of Fame design. Its perfect for family trips, single-handed fun, and an excellent racer. And its a good investment. See our Buyer's Checklist and Flying Scot® Specifications below. 

We encourage you to call us with any questions at 732-319-7735. Designed by the internationally famous racer Gordon K. "Sandy" Douglass, each Flying Scot® is hand-crafted with the highest quality materials and methods. The first Scot ever built still wins races!

The Flying Scot® is Fast

Flying ScotThe late Gordon Douglass is an internationally known racing champion, so he designed the Scot for speed. The Scot is a low-displacement design (she sits shallow in water) and she has a flat, tapered shape in the stern which allows her to plane. This means she will come out of the water and is not limited to her waterline hull-speed. With over 200 square feet of sail area, she has the "engine" to move well in any wind speed. Get her on a beam-reach with 15 knots of wind, and experience the thrill of a planing hull!

 Flying ScotThe Flying Scot® is Stable and Safe

The Scot is not a flopsy acrobatic design; the photo at left illustrates the Scot's stability. Her slightly tunneled hull design, hard bilges and weighted centerboard provide a strong righting moment. And with over 600 lbs of reserve buoyancy, the Flying Scot® is unsinkable. The wide side deck and seat allow the Scot to take a knock- down with little or no water in the boat, and one person can easily right her in the water.
