All about Wrighton brand
Founded in 1976 in Bethune, France, Wrighton Shipyard quickly stood out from the crowd by producing robust and reliable sailboats, specially designed for family cruising. Wrighton sailboats are characterised by their twin-keel moulded hulls: these shallow draught boats are best known for their ability to withstand grounding. Dry storage and maintenance are also made easier.
The Biloup range remains the company's most emblematic one to this day: over 1,000 units ranging from 26 foot to 36 foot have been produced over the past 30 years. The deck and rig are designed to enable one person to manoeuvre the boat alone. Wrighton sailboats are especially popular for family cruising thanks to their excellent habitability, high-quality interiors and safety.
Wrighton currently produces three twin-keel models ranging from 26 foot to 36 foot, all built around a saloon with high ceiling and panoramic views:
- Wrighton 36: a 74m2 sailboat designed for ocean cruising;
- Wrighton 30: spacious interior and generous sail plan for comfortable coastal cruising;
- Wrighton 26: shallow draught ideal for exploring small coves, easy to tow. This 7.80m boat features two cabins, a washroom with shower and an inviting saloon: no easy feat!
Robust, functional and comfortable, Wrighton boats are sure to please families passionate about coastal and offshore cruising.
