Great boat! The hinged mast step means one person can put the mast up by themselves. You don't need anyone else to go out or you can have the baot all ready by the time guests arrive.

Fits up to 6 comfortably but easily sailed by one. Roller furling jib. Nice trailer included. Swing keel so you can go right up on the beach in Mission Bay etc. Kick up rudder too. Easy up mast can be put up by one person. Built-in ice chest. Self draining cockpit, no bailing! A little cuddy cabin so you can duck out of the rain or store all of your gear.

Very fun, spirited boat but a unique hull design makes it very table too. I've been sailing over 50 years and it is the funnest boat I've sailed. But it is also the best boat to teach someone else to sail in. Can be rowed or a small electric motor really scoots it along.

Can be towed by any car with a hitch.

The Day Sailer is a very versatile boat, easy to rig, sail, transport, and store. With the mast down the boat and trailer take up just a few feet more than an average family car, so can be stored in most garages. At the ramp, the Day Sailer can be rigged in under 30 minutes.

The Day Sailer is a treat to sail; it handles well, tacks with ease, and powers up quickly with its large sail area. The planing hull is responsive to the tiller, and the wide beam makes it stable. The boat will roll quickly but then sets on a tack, holding it with stable and positive helm control. The centerboard can be easily adjusted from amidships.

The Day Sailer’s 7′ 4″-long cockpit provides plenty of room .

The cuddy is spacious for storing picnic or camping gear, and it affords a space equivalent to a two-person backpacker tent for sleeping aboard for overnight cruising. Adding a topping lift makes the boom nice ridgepole for a boom tent; there’s plenty of room to sleep in the uncluttered cockpit. The Day Sailer has completed many endurance cruising events, such as the Texas 200, Florida 120, and the Everglades Challenge.

A small kicker can be added for auxiliary power but it is very easily rowed or paddled.
