505 Dinghy

A POWERFUL HIGH-PERFORMANCE DINGHY

The 505 is a double handed dinghy raced worldwide, that incorporates a high performance hull design with a powerful sail plan and one trapeze. The boat has become very refined over the years and is unique in that it has outstanding performance in all conditions.

The class rules are one design, with the emphasis on controlling aspects that most directly affect boat speed. The sail plan and hull shape are tightly controlled, while the rigging layout, spars and foils are open. This allows the boat to be set up in many ways to suit different sailors. Most boats currently have adjustable shrouds, forestay and mast ram which allows rig tension, rake and mast being to be changed whilst racing.

The ideal sailing weight varies with the prevailing local conditions, with most successful racers being between 140 – 180kg.

Ovi white hull, light grey deck.

Devolved entirely by our in-house design team, drawing upon the knowledge and experience of Holger Jess- one of the most prolific 505 sailors of a generation. The new Ovington 505 is a result of over 6 months of R & D culminating in a complete 3D model from which the final tools have been CNC cut.

Fully optimised within the class rules – with feedback from the International 505 class association – key features include:

  • Narrower sections forward
  • Flatter and more powerful run-off aft
  • Maximum waterline length
  • Increased stiffness and structural efficiency
