The Weta dealership is in a state of flux at the moment; try Pete Cailes 01425 618195 for new boats, secondhand boats and spares. 4 new boats have arrived in the UK! SEE SALES AND WANTS. Of the links below, the Wetamarine website is the manufacturer’s website and weta.co.uk is the UK section of the manufacturer’s website. This website is the class association website. There is an element of overlap between the two.

Welcome to the Weta Class Association Website
The Weta is a 14ft ‘dinghy’ trimaran suitable for use by one to three people. It can be sailed as a single-handed racing dinghy with skiff-like characteristics, as a general purpose recreational boat with cruising potential, as a training boat and as a boat suitable, with the addition of a special seat, for disabled sailing. Unlike most catamarans it sails more or less level, rather than on one hull. It was designed in New Zealand and is named after the Wetapunga - a native of New Zealand and reputedly the world’’s largest insect. They do not bite and are regarded with affection in that country. The pondskater-like appearance of the boat may have influenced the choice of name.
