Non-Nesting Version of the Popular PT Eleven Dinghy

Dubbed the "Spear" for its arrow-shaped foredeck, this non-nesting version of the phenomenally successful PT 11 has fewer parts, making it a simpler and less expensive boat to build. The biggest differences between the non-nesting Spear and the original PT 11 Nesting Dinghy are found in the cockpit layout. The PT Spear's hull shape is the same as the PT 11 nesting version.

The base kit contents will be posted on this page as soon as production commences.

The back seat of the Spear spans the stern of the boat instead of being divided as on the nesting version. There are baffles that provide air buoyancy sufficient to balance the air buoyancy in the bow compartment (forward of the mast step). This built-in buoyancy is an important safety feature on this boat and in the PT 11 Nesting dinghy.  

The Spear does not have a full foredeck. A water-tight hatch provides access and ample storage space here. 

Aside from these differences, the hull shape is identical to the PT 11 Nesting version, and rowing and sailing performance are the same.

The Spear base kit costs significantly less than the PT11 Nesting Dinghy kit, and is lighter by a few pounds. The various options offered for the PT11 Nesting Dinghy (including the sailing rig) will be the same for the Spear.
