Optimist is the sailing entry class used worldwide: a boat for kids to develop the basic sailing skills. It is a very basic design focused on safety. Yet, at Devoti Sailing we believe in quality and competitiveness. Even in the most basic design, even for kids. With this spirit, Roman Teply applied his skill to perfect the traditional Optimist design, and selected high quality materials to produce our D-Optimist.



The result is a beautiful and fast little dinghy with quality written all over it. The perfect tool to introduce your passionate kids to the world of sailing.

Success at the highest levels of professional sport is becoming increasingly complex.
