Wauquiez Optio

Optio Overview

The Wauquiez Optio day sail boat may be small and minimal, but the Wauquiez elegance, luxury, and craftsmanship are not optional. Her sleek lines, fluid curves, uncluttered deck, and flush deck hatches are telltale signs she is designed for high performance. The standard model includes full racing equipment.

Single-handed or crew sailing are comfortable with an efficient helm and removable seats to clear cockpit space for crew movement. Winches are within easy
reach and the self-tacking jib facilitates maneuvers. The retractable bow sprit speeds hoisting of the spinnaker or code 0.

Optional features include a fold-down cockpit table, a folding transom which becomes a teak-covered bathing platform, and a large sunbathing area forward of the mast for optimal crew relaxation.

From the racing version with minimalist comfort and complete racing equipment to the cruising version with plush appointments, customize the Optio to make your day sailer perfect for how you use your boat. Contact Dream Yacht Sales for more information.
