A Laser Vago is a sailing dinghy designed by Jo Richards and manufactured by Laser Performance. The Vago can be sailed and raced by a crew of two or single-handed. The Standard (Std) rigged version sports a single trapeze, asymmetric gennaker, furling jib and reefable mainsail.
A more powerful sail plan can be added to upgrade to a Vago Race (XD) with a larger gennaker, a Mylar mainsail and trapeze lines.

The rotomoulded hull is constructed from a polyethylene tri-skin foam sandwich and is designed for early planing.

The Vago is renowned for fantastic performance in high winds due to the lightweight hull design and the Mylar mainsail. As a result, this boat is sailed mainly by more experienced crews than boats such as the Laser 3000.
