The Beneteau Wizz is a two-man dinghy built in 1982.[1] It was elected as boat of the year in that same year.[2]

Performance and design[edit]

The Wizz has a simple design, created with stability and surfing in mind. It is quick and easy to rig, and can be fitted to a car roof rack.[3] Despite being a short boat, at just 4.4 metres (14 ft), the Wizz weighs 75 kilograms (165 lb) and accommodates for two crew.[1]
