Referred to here is the LIS Dinghy (Jolle) though it actually has a small low cuddy containing 2 berths.
There are two other variations on the same hull:
LIS-JOLLENKREUZER' in 1967, has a small cabin (with 2 berths and a table).
With the LIS-FAMILY, the hull was widened slightly with a longer larger cabin and shorter cockpit.
The cockpit became self bailinng in 1978.
Class rules for the LIS allow the use of 1 trapeze.
Seen mostly in Germany but also exported to Canada. (LIS 500 CRUISER)
Gade Marine is the original and current builder. (
