The Heron is a two person dinghy that is sailed in all states of Australia. The Heron was designed in the early 1950s by Jack Holt in the UK. The class was introduced to Australia in the late 1950s and has flourished in its new home.
The Heron offers safe entry level sailing for novices but also provides an ongoing challenge for experienced sailors who are seeking to optimise performance.
The Heron can be built in timber (using traditional framing or stitch and glue construction) or fibreglass. Second hand boats usually range in price from $500 to $8,000. A fully equipped new fibreglass boat bought off the shelf can be put on the water for approximately $12,500.
