Comet Trio


The Comet Trio is the ultimate all rounder, designed by Phil Morison to be ideal for racing, cruising and training.


A dinghy as versatile as this is often full of compromises, but the Comet Trio rewrites the rule book.




The classic hull lines don’t just look good, they provide the Trio with the sort of performance that often seriously embarrasses supposedly faster racing dinghies. Great fun.


The Trio has to be the most comfortable racer ever, with a low cockpit floor and high boom for easy tacking and gybing, The optional asymmetric spinnaker is really easy to use even if you have not used a spinnaker before.


The Class Association organises Championships, Open Meetings and Cruising Events. Like all other Comet Classes, Trio owners are friendly and easygoing and make newcomers really welcome.


The hull lines are fair and balanced with an elegant bow and fine entry giving excellent performance at sea or inland.


There is plenty of sail area for amazing light wind speed and easy planning in stronger winds, but is easily reefed for beginners or heavy weather.




The Trio has an incredibly roomy cockpit that easily accommodates a large family with all round “sit in” seats providing security for the young and inexperienced.


The slab reefing mainsail and furling jib quickly reduce the sail area so even beginners feel confident and in control.


The Trio is truly versatile, with options of front or rear lockers, outboard motors and even oars making this dinghy a great all rounder.




Many Trios are hard at work at sailing schools or used as training dinghies at sailing clubs.


Roomy and steady enough to carry 4 or 5 students but potentially fast and responsive for one to one tuition at higher levels.


All mouldings, spars and fittings are tough and durable to give years of trouble free service.




Race, cruise, or teach, Sail, motor or row, it’s your choice. The standard Trio is well equipped, buy by choosing various options, your Trio becomes bespoke, tailored to your needs and desires.


We offer you that important personal service and are more than happy to arrange a demonstration sail.
