Our Boat

If you have done some dinghy sailing before, looking at buying a small keelboat, or just venturing into your sailing adventure, then our Beneteau First 211 would be the perfect choice for you. She has tiller steering, a similar method as that found on a dinghy. She is 21 foot long and is very responsive to sail. The helm and crew must move around the boat to keep her balanced, however, unlike a dinghy she won’t capsize. Ark really is the best of both worlds. There are more than 50 of these being sailed on the lake Windermere and they are an ideal first step into keelboat sailing.
