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.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

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".
