Cirrus Raceboats is a specialist developer / supplier of racing dinghies and parts - until 2016 it manufactured the Blaze dinghy, today produced by Hartley boats. From 2017, now on a revised scale, and with different objectives Cirrus still supports the Blaze and its derivatives. It is run by active enthusiasts for fellow enthusiasts and we offer nothing that we do not or would not use ourselves. Racing dinghies that can offer refined performance for more sailors and for more of the time are our focus.
We can offer good used boats from time to time and do restore and upgrade owners boats to whatever level is required. As ever we are always happy to advise both prospective and existing owners - get in contact if you need some input.
Beyond the Blaze we have involvement with other projects, often working with other manufacturers as they develop and look to market new boats. We get involved with designs that are suited for both the experienced front-line racer and for regular club sailors. The underlying philosophy is to keep things simple, light and durable. 'Practical' and 'Useable' performance is the key.
If 'it' does not justify its place on the boats we work with then you really don't need it - but this does not mean having to compromise on performance. We keep things lightweight, highly functional and hopefully accessible to many more. The boats we get involved with tend towards the minimalist - by design.
Whatever your interest send us an email and whatever the stage of your enquiry we will do our best to help you.
