Unmistakable sophistication

Wauquiez Optio

Versatile Daysailer

For the sailor seeking the ultimate daysailer, the Wauquiez Optio offers the pure exhilaration of sailing a powerful yet easy-to-handle 29-foot monohull. The modestly-sized Optio is minimalist in design and yet incorporates the Wauquiez brand’s trademark sophistication and craftsmanship.
Stability, waterline length and sail surface are optimized making her a quick and powerful boat that offers real sensations at the helm. Her sleek lines, fluid curves, uncluttered deck, and flush deck hatches are telltale signs she is designed for high performance.
When not in use for sport, the Optio is a superb pleasure boat, designed with a modular seating arrangement in the cockpit to suit the activity of the day.


Performance Packed

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, while the retractable bowsprit assists hoisting of the spinnaker or code 0. Designed first for performance, the standard Wauquiez Optio model includes full racing equipment.
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. Plus, the retractable keel and removable mast make the Optio towable for easy access to all sailing areas.


Quality & Efficiency

Below, the Optio is equipped to allow a night or weekend of overnighting aboard with a comfortable and efficient interior layout. The saloon with folding teak table easily converts to two berths, while the small galley serves with an integrated sink, fridge and optional microwave oven.
From the racing version with minimalist comfort and complete racing equipment to the cruising version with handrails, mooring kit and 220v electric pack, customize the Optio to make your day sailer perfect for you and your crew.
