What is the smallest dinghy with a cabin?
What is the smallest sailboat with a cabin?

Most likely a West Wight Potter 15

dinghy definition

n. pl. din·ghies
1. A small open boat carried as a tender, lifeboat, or pleasure craft on a larger boat.
2. A small rowboat.
3. An inflatable rubber life raft.

Dinghies don't typically have cabins. perhaps you need to rephrase your question?

The smallest production sailboat with a cabin is probably the West Wight Potter 15, as mentioned by chuck... however, I would be hesistant to classify the WWP15 as a dinghy. When someone says sailing dinghy, I think of things like Lasers, Sunfish, Mirrors, Optis, the 470s, and the ilk—all open boats as TB points out... The WWP15 doesn't fit the description IMHO.

Don't forget the 14' Peep Hen:

The Oday Osprey which was roughly 15ft overall had a very small cuddy, could be trailered, and was a small version of the Oday Daysailor. If a person can call a Lightning, Flying Scot, or Snipe a "dinghy", this would also fit a broad interpretation of the definition, although not in the sense of a "racing dinghy".
