Twenty years, the Club 420 was developed in
response to the growing need for a more durable,
high-performance, double-handed racing dinghy
that could stand up to the rigors of club and collegiate
programs. Ideal for crews ranging in size from 220-300
lbs., the Club 420 is manageable for sailors coming
out of the Optimist class and enables young sailors to
learn teamwork, trapeze and spinnaker techniques.
The Club 420 is simple and safe for beginning sailors
and yet challenging enough for collegiate champions.
The Club 420 offers more learning opportunities than
any other double-handed boat you can find. The Club
420 Class Association promotes events on the local,
regional, and national levels in North America.
New molds: LaserPerformance has new molds for
the entire production line of the Club 420. These
improvements have produced a more uniform boat.
Harken™ hardware: Known worldwide as the
strongest, most durable, best performing marine
hardware available anywhere, at any price.
Plexus™ inside: Plexus™ is a new bonding material
that is being used exclusively by LaserPerformance
to bond the hull to the deck at both the rails,
floor flanges and all other structural parts on the
Club 420. The bonding material is stronger and
significantly more elastic than traditional bonding
materials. It increases the durability of the entire
boat especially the critical hull deck joint.
