Laser Stratos
Fin keel

Laser Stratos is originally a dinghy intended for leisure, she may occasionally race even if the fitting is more modest than on models made for this purpose. Downwind with the spinnaker set, she is fun when shorthanded (Laser Stratos has a capacity up to 6 people).

Laser Stratos is equipped with a system of automatic reef: Combi-Tec. To make it even more accessible and safe, it has been proposed in Keelboat version with reinforced structure to host a 70kg – 155lbs lifting keel.
