A Laser Vago is a sailing dinghy designed by Jo Richards and manufactured by Laser Performance. The Vago can be sailed and raced by a crew of two or single-handed. The Standard (Std) rigged version sports a single trapeze, asymmetric gennaker, furling jib and reefable mainsail.
A more powerful sail plan can be added to upgrade to a Vago Race (XD) with a larger gennaker, a Mylar mainsail and trapeze lines.

The rotomoulded hull is constructed from a polyethylene tri-skin foam sandwich and is designed for early planing.
