"The Tera looks really nice, very good price, low weight, strong material - It must be a success!"
Christer Båth, Sweden

Desborough Sailing Club

Desborough Sailing Club
"Good looks are there for sure - the Tera seems likely to get the thumbs up from both adults (who'll be signing the cheque) and young sailors (who'll have the fun)."
Yachts and Yachting
"should be easy to tow behind a cruiser or even stow on deck - and when you get to the other end you can use it as a tender as well as sailing around."
Practical Boat Owner
"We started with six to replace our tired Oppies, and now we have 12 with another 6 planned. The simple reason for this is that they are chosen by our juniors time and time again over the Oppies which are generally left redundant in the boat park. There is a marked improvement of the standard of sailing of our youngsters - they are a great success!"
