The Day Sailer sailboat offers wonderful performance and speed for the seasoned sailer, remarkable ease of sailing and stability for the casual skipper and his family, and unusual room and a unique cuddy- cabin arrangement for all-around use.

Complete safety is assured by styrofoam flotation tanks built into the bow and side seats.

There is just enough mahogany trim to give a rich nautical flair without requiring extra maintenance.

She is ideal for day sailing or racing and with over 1,300 boats in use you are assured of racing fleets over most of the country.
