World Champion 2013, 2014 & 2016
(Silver in 2015 & 2017)

We have improved the 2018 boat after the feedback and testing we did at the World Championship

Things that make the 3D STAR uniqe
  • 3D improved hull shape
  • Low friction bottom.
  • Stiffer hull - obtained by using 15% stiffer foam in the bottom hull.
  • Advanced Winner maststep: Stiffer, stronger and less wobbling.
  • Ronstan Orbit block system incl. Optilink.
  • New non-slip infront of the daggerboard case.
  • Special, Ergonomic Winner toe-straps. (Perfect Grip)
  • New daggerboard tape and plug system (Singapore style)
  • Stiff midship frame.
  • From 2018 Nylon mounting plates (Much lighter)
All these features not the only things that distinguish a Winner from other optimists. Through our obsession with details and strong focus on quality, we have engineered the #1 optimist in the world.

Our philosophy is: The best materials and the best craftsmanship generate the best boat!

This creates a more costly boat, but less maintenance and better durability makes sure that the superior sailing performance is retained throughout the boat’s lifetime.


This assures a longer life span – and thereby making Winner an inexpensive boat in the longer term.

For instance, we use the best Gelcoat in the world. This Gelcoat makes us able to give the hull a much more hydrodynamic surface. We also use fibreglass that is up to 50% more expensive than other fibreglasses. This gives superior torsion resistance and stiffness.

To make sure that every boat, which leaves us, is 100% Winner quality, we have invested in the most high-tech and environment friendly optimist plant in the world. Located in Denmark, our highly qualified craftsmen are recruited locally and are the best in their field.
