The Laser Pico is a small initiation and leisure dinghy. She is a simple and solid boat. The hull is made of Tecrothene 109, an evolution of roto-molded polyethylene. This material guarantees durability. She can be sailed alone, with only the mainsail, or two handed with mainsail and jib. The maximum capacity is 3 people according to CE certification. The reduction of sail is a model of simplicity, no reef; the mainsail rolls up around the mast.
A Race version comes with a 6.44m² - 70sqft Mylar mainsail and Harken hardware.
