Launching Trolley - Optimist & Topper Sailing Dinghies
Movevirgo have designed launching trollies especially for the Optimist and Topper sailing dinghies.
The Optimist dinghy is the biggest and one of the most competitive racing classes in the world, many of the best Optimist
racers go on to be world class sailors. The Topper is another popular single-handed dinghy and, like the Optimist is used in
the RYA's National Junior Squad programmes.
Movevirgo designed the Optimist trolley to be light (7.5kg) and easy to use by children. The fitted padding allows it to carry the boats safely, and when travelling the trolley fits snugly onto the upturned hull ready for tie down, again reducing the chance of damage occurring to the hull.
The Topper Trolley is of a similar design to the Optimist, which means the trolley is lightweight (8kg) for ease of use by children and adults alike and, as with the Optimist Trolley, is easy to tie down and transport on the upturned hull.
Being made of mainly plastic components (the axle is aluminium and the 'R' Clips galvanized) corrosion problems are virtually eliminated, leading to a long potential working life for the trolleys, subject to sensible normal use.
Both trollies can be ordered direct and we also provide a complete range of spare parts - simply click on the relevant images below, you will then be able to mouse over the part required on the pictures below and click to see the order code and part price.
