Another singlehander, the Solo differs from the OK as it has a deeper, more traditional hull-form, a permanently stayed mast and a powerful, fully battened mainsail. Another design from the drawing-board of Jack Holt, the Solo first appeared in 1956. Very popular with the mature sailor, the design is extremely comfortable with ergonomically designed side-decks for ease of sitting-out. There is also plenty of space for the occasional passenger when not racing. It is available in all forms of materials wood, GRP/FRP and composite construction.
