Here at Maguire Boats we are now producing our new Exocet international moth. We have worked closely with designer Kevin Ellway and top UK moth sailors to produce and supply a great new boat.
The Exocet, from Maguire Boats, represents the latest high performance Moth, which has culminated in innovative refinements in both hull and foil design that have achieved notable improvements in performance as well as their ease of use.
These have emanated from extensive computer modelling, the application of precision CNC tooling, careful material selection, and an exacting attention to construction detail and material layout, resulting in a high quality product that is stiff and robust.

A note from the designer
Designed by Ellway Aero - Hydrodynamic
Races are rarely won solely on the basis of top speed, but hinge on minimising the time spent going slowly around the racetrack. The Exocet has been designed not only for high speeds, but also to minimise the time off the foils – she foils very early and has the glide to foil tack and gybe smoothly. Downwind, the Exocet is truly a missile, but is still very controllable and easy to sail in chop.
The Exocet represents the culmination of many thousands of hours CFD analysis of both the hull/foil hydrodynamics and the hull’s aerodynamics, combined with practical experience and elite sailor feedback. The smooth, rounded lines of the hull give a smooth lift out, and prevent it from catching in chop whilst also reducing windage. The foils and control system allow you to fly high and fast safely.
Maguire Boats has built the Exocet to the exacting standards demanded by the design. The hull, wings and foils are all very stiff. This allows drive from the rig and dynamic input from the rider to be converted directly into controllable speed.
