Optimist Trolley, lightweight galvanized steel construction, only 900grams heavier than an alloy trolley.

This robust A frame trolley is ideal for boisterous sailors, club use or if you want to tow your boat on our combi road base.


Optimist Trolley. A frame design makes this robust yet still light in weight and can be used as a combi trailer on the Trident Compact EU road base.

With the smaller wheels this trolley is light, it doesn't need to go as deep to launch and recover (ideal for parents helping from shore), it isn't as buoyant (makes pairing the trolley to boat easier)

The trolley handle is set to make this as easy a pull as possible for crew and or adults.

The guiding arms on the cradle make pairing the boat easy in the water and ensure the boat is sitting correctly on the trolley protecting it from damage from the wheels or from cradle damage due to miss alignment.

Together with the bow snubber, Tridents boat keeper is a simple and effective way of keeping the boat and trolley together (works on iod95 GRP boats)

Pneumatic tyres are on non-corrosive plastic wheels, overall size 9.5"x3"

Easily and quickly assembled using only four bolts and spanners are supplied.

  1. simon harris asks 9 Jun 2016

    I need to pull this trolley over the beach. Are the wheels inflatable and what size are they (diameter). Also, Im 5' 5" tall and the front handle looks high, it looks like i might struggle to lift and pull this trolley?

      Hi Simon
      The standard wheels are 9.5" diameter and 3" wide, it has small wheels so you don't have to go so deep to launch.
      The handle does look high in the photo which I think is just a trick of perspective, my kids both have this trolley and they have no problems and aren't 5 foot yet
      I hope that helps

    Will this fit an Optibat? I have just checked the beams of both an Optimist and an Optibat and I there is only a few cms difference. Is there some room between the arms to accommodate?

    1. David Shilling answers 15 May 2019

      Hi Daniel
      Yes this will be perfect with your Optibat and much better balanced than the alloy trolleys as long as the boat is kept the right way up, there won't be room to store it upside down on the trolley sorry
