Upgrades, Options & Accessories

The Bug comes with everything you need to go sailing the day you buy it. That said, we do offer several optional upgrades to help make your Bug even better.
Rig Options
The Bug has two alternatives – the Standard rig (41 ft²/3.8 m²) and the Race rig (56 ft²/5.3 m²). The difference is in the top mast section and the sail – the Race version has a unique power curve topmast.
Sail Choices
The Bug has six different sail designs to choose from, four for the Standard boat made of Dacron and two for the Race version made of Laminate Mylar.
Motor Mount
If you need to get there a little faster, we offer a 2-3 horsepower engine motor mount for the Bug.
Bow Wheel
The bow wheel can be mounted into the hull and two small tube-style handles that slide smoothly from the transom. With the wheel installed, the Bug can be easily rolled around the boat park. These optional upgrades have been designed specifically for the Bug; they are aerodynamic and easy to install.
Oars
Optional oars come apart and tuck neatly into the Bug’s front inspection port.
Covers
To protect your Bug we offer both a top and bottom cover specifically designed to fit snugly around the hull.
Handles
Extendable aluminum carry handles slide from transom drain ports.

Colors

  • The Bug has a light blue hull. The standard sail is available in Yellow Zest and Red Craze; the race sail is available in Lotus and Blaze.
