A sailing boat for children – of the skiff type – with an anti-capsize cushion, El Niño is the first dinghy that aims to fill a gap in the market a product – a skiff for beginners – that can complete training for young athletes. The platforms in tubular aluminium with their original system for connecting to the hull, house floating reserves for learning to move on the boat while eliminating the risk of capsizing. El Niño also offers some interesting innovations in terms of construction: it’s the first boat in the world to use a biocomposite in mass production.
