The D-one is all about fun and performance. It was designed in 2009 by Phil Morrison and “perfected” by Devoti Sailing’s Roman Teply with the idea of bringing the spirit and the technology of world class racers to the world of single-handler dinghies.
The result is pure excitement. The D-one combines the physicality and the challenge of single sailing with the excitement of top performance due to the gennaker use in the reaches.
If you look for fun, challenge and excitement, the D-one is the boat for you.
Luca Devoti & Roman Teply
It has been tested and “approved” by a score of top sailors and sailing champions, like Olympic Gold Medal and americascupper Tom Slingsby, British Laser crack Nick Thompson and dinghy UK champion Nick Craig. If you look for fun, challenge and excitement, the D-one is the boat for you.
