Introduction: Sabots for Beginners, Racers, Sailing Schools and More
The Naples Sabot is the perfect first boat for young sailors. It is light, safe, inexpensive, and fun to sail. W. D. Schock Corp. has been building Sabots for over fifty years and is now one of the few remaining production builders of this popular design.
Over the years, W. D. Schock has introduced a number of innovations in the construction of Sabots. We were the first to build a fiberglass Sabot, first to build a foam core Sabot, and now we are building the most popular racing Sabot of all — the Brian Thomas/Corsair. This gives us the full range of Sabots — Sabots for beginners, for racers, for sailing schools and community sailing programs, and for lakeside vacation homes.
At W. D. Schock Corp., we recognize the importance of a child's first sailing experience. And we do all we can to make the first few years of each child's sailing experience happy and memorable. We hope one of our Schock Sabots will become a step toward a lifelong love of sailing.
