Sail a 55' rocket ship solo or with a full crew. Scoot is set up for either.
Now is the time to plan a demo sail as Scoot's home lake waters are falling!
Scoot represents a unique example of a high tech daysailer that’s conceived for shorthanded sailing, exciting performance and low maintenance. Twin steering wheels and rudders, roller furling mainsail, no running backs stays, and finger tip hydraulic sail controls make this 55 super easy to handle.
An 8’ up or 12’ down push button hydraulically operated lifting keel ensures that Scoot lives up to her name and can still access shallow harbors and marinas. An uncluttered deck layout with no bright work allows her crew to be off the boat within minutes of docking or mooring after a quick rinse down.
Scoot is the perfect vessel for a sailing aficionado who loves the exhilaration of sailing fast but doesn’t want the hassle of crew or maintenance. With a weight of under 10 tons she would also make a great auxiliary sailing tender for a large expedition motor yacht.
Compare to 2009 Ciao Gianni now listed at over a million dollars. Own Scoot for a fraction of that!
Scoot is in the water and ready for a test sail. Don't miss out.

Designed by Nelson/Marek and built by New England Boatworks in 2009 to the highest standards possible.
Carbon pre-preg epoxy composite over Nomex honeycomb and Core-cell foam cores. Vacuum laminated/heat cured to design spec
Lifting 5000kg keel - fin and bulb. The fin was machined from a solid billet of steel
The twin rudders are modest in size and canted at 19 degrees
The deck plan features a long cockpit with space forward for guests where the “cooler box” is located. There is a second seating area aft of the helm station. The seats are contoured and shaped to be comfortable at rest or while sailing. There are twin companionways flanking the keel trunk. There really is no interior to talk about. There are two pipe berths and a self contained head with holding tank. This design is all about being on deck.
