O'Trolley is born !

Updated: Apr 28

O'Trolley - What is it ?


Our vision

O'Trolley is a collborative project by moth sailors who think thatit's not normal to damage their back or their boat during launching or recovery.

Putting a Moth, Waszp or One Fly in the water is stressful and inevitably results in damage to Tramps, Wings Bars, hull, Wand & bowspirit or even the top of the sail.


That's why we created O'trolley !​


A simple, robust and quick-to-use solution.

A trolley that can be used in all conditions.

A unique trolley for all boats.
