Contact Jim Scott

Jim Scott’s Formula Sailcraft was established in 2002 and has built over sixty Sabre dinghies. The 2019 and 2020 Sabre Australian Championships and 2020 Sabre Victorian Championships were both won by a Formula Sailcraft Sabre proving beyond doubt the race winning performance of the FSMk2 hull. All boats are built to a high level of quality and minimum weight using the latest technology Vacuum Infusion with Vinylester resin. 

Formula Sailcraft can supply Sabres from bare hull/deck assembly to any stage of completion right through to full ‘turn-key’ rig and race. 

Also made are fully moulded fibreglass/foam/balsa Sabre centreboards and rudder blades (foil shape optimized) as well as glass sheathed, white polyurethane finished rudder boxes with anodized alloy tillers.
