New to the 505 Class?

If you’re new to the 5O5 Class, you’re in for an exciting journey. Known for being exceptionally well-made, 5O5 dinghies can remain competitive indefinitely with proper care. However, not all older 5O5s are created equal. Some may not be worth the investment of time and money to restore for racing.

To make informed decisions, explore this comprehensive list of 5O5 builders throughout the years: 5O5 Builders Archive.

Understanding hull numbers is crucial.  They are assigned sequentially upon the boat’s initial measurement after construction. The minimum weight for a 505 (weighed with all required racing equipment except sails) is 127.4kg or 280.9 pounds. Note that many boats have lead corrector weights strategically placed to meet this minimum weight requirement (50% at the front of the CB trunk, and 50% at the rear of the CB trunk).
