Creature comforts are provided with bathrobes, extra pillows, hairdryers and a complimentary selection of wines from around the world.

Longer Fliptail from Wooden Widget

>>> Longer Fliptail from Wooden Widget

Wooden Widget has added a longer, 7′ version of their Fliptail design.


Benjy’s Origami design was our first "boat build", which is a surprisingly stable and versatile little boat. The Fliptail looks to be a lighter design (important in this type of boat), that is still stable and usable.

Check the video with the boat on plane.

The Fliptail is the latest addition to the Woodenwidget family. Pretty, functional and easy to build. The Fliptail is a simple folding dinghy consisting of a central keel with two drop down floors, four hinged hoops and a reinforced PVC cloth skin.

It assembles in moments and rows and sails extremely well. Tough, light and resilient, with a 3.3hp motor it can also plane at speeds of up to 14 knots! Available in both 6 and 7 foot versions.
