Welcome to the International 505 site.

THE BEST TWO PERSON SAILING ON THE PLANET.

THE BEST WAY TO GET A FEEL FOR THE BOAT IS TO TAKE A RIDE

FIND A RIDE

The first thing you will notice about a 505 is sheer acceleration compared to other dinghies. It’s simply exhilarating and will make you never want to sail a slower boat again.

Unlike skiffs and foiling boats, the 505 is incredibly stable and easy to control in strong wind and high waves. Almost every adjustment can be made on the water. Most adjustments can be made while under way, which makes racing incredibly dynamic.

The boat is unique in that it has outstanding performance in all conditions. In light air, it is quick and responsive, and in the breeze, it just goes faster.
