Shoreline Sailboats is proud to be an authorized dealer for the Sunfish from Laser Performance.

LaserPerformance is the only builder of the original Sunfish, and produces about six new boats per day at their shop in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.  We especially like the Sunfish for its versatility as a kid-friendly family boat, and an all out racing machine. We recognize the Sunfish as an amazing boat because it has such a long and rich heritage. Sunfish sailors are an incredibly diverse group who share a passion for one of the most popular boats ever conceived.

Most popular sailboat ever built:

The Sunfish is the most popular recreational sailboat in history. Its classic design, unmatched stability and sailing ease sunfish_5_400are enjoyed by all ages. Owners appreciate the lightweight hull, which easily travels on the top of a car. The ultra-durable construction ensures years of maintenance-free enjoyment. Sailing trips are a breeze, just load the Sunfish on your car and go!

Sunfish
This is the classic boat you grew up with. The Sunfish has two easy to rig lines and easy-snap sail rings. World class racers such as Dennis Conner, of America’s Cup fame, and Gary Hoyt, who developed the Freedom class and won the first Sunfish worlds in 1972, learned to sail at the slim wooden tiller of the Sunfish.

Will White’s  “The Sunfish Book”, “The Sunfish is pure sailing—the sail in the wind, the board in the water, and you in the hull in between—one hand on the tiller, the other on the sheet and the wind in your hair. Pure sailboat racing, too. For the racing sailor, it is the essence of yacht racing. It was the first truly one-design boat, rigidly controlled by the manufacturer, with even the sails limited to one loft (for measured sails) and very little that could be done in the way of adding expensive go-fasts. No need for a new set of sails every year. No need to keep buying or changing expensive hardware to keep up with the latest sailing theory.”
