Ovington Boats is one of the worlds most successful small boat building businesses, specialising in the high-performance dinghy market.

Ovington Boats was founded by Dave Ovington in 1975. Dave started off building traditional wooden boats and, in particular, race-winning Enterprises. With the search for lighter boats, Dave progressed to using glass fibre and developed the application of vacuum bagged foam sandwich construction. Sadly, in March 2005 Dave died suddenly – but his legacy lives on in the business and the people who have worked at Ovington Boats for many years.

Ovington Boars have an enviable reputation for quality and service across a wide range of products, including the manufacture of the Olympic Class 49er, the World Sailing and RYA Youth Asymmetric 29er Class, Musto Skiff, VX One, Flying Fifteen and International 14.
