"An ideal boat to introduce kids to sailing - modern looking, fun to sail and exceptional value … buy one and burn the Playstation."
"Our juniors set off in the shiny brand new craft, which so have out performed all expectations."
"The Tera looks really nice, very good price, low weight, strong material - It must be a success!"
Christer Båth, Sweden
"The youngsters like its looks "cool, fab, brill etc"…. and it's FAST - a real fun boat."
Desborough Sailing Club
"The Tera has quickly become the most popular choice with our Cadets."
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!"
Hawley Lake Sail Training Centre
""Self draining PE boats are also a coaches best friend. Sure fiberglass teaches respect but not so much that the fleet won't need plenty of work after a summers abuse. I've had Tera's flip multiple times on a windy session and not had to drag a crying child out of a swamped boat, the same can not be said for the opti.""
