For those who push the pram a lot

A Norwegian-born industrial designer cum college professor intent on developing a lightweight dinghy for weekend sailors has developed an odd, if strangely attractive, dinghy to be pulled onto the deck of a sailboat.

Jan-Henrik Andersen’s Neutrino measures just 6 feet 2 inches in length and 4 feet in beam. It weighs a scant 35 lbs due to its carbon-Kevlar composite construction. With 150 lbs of internal flotation, it reportedly boasts a safe working load of 500 lbs.

“The inspiration for the dinghy was twofold; firstly, to create a light and usable cruising dinghy.” The second inspiration is based on the inventor’s penchant for combining mathematics with aesthetics.
