O’Pen Skiff

The O’Pen Skiff (formerly O’Pen Bic) is an exciting single-handed boat designed for young sailors looking for an exhilarating alternative to the Sabot or Optimist pram trainer. The O’Pen Skiff hull is a self-bailing design with a centerboard. The hull construction is roto-molded plastic and the mast is a fiberglass/epoxy composite. The Bic is very responsive, easy to accelerate and quick to right after capsize.
