Lightly used, this Day Sailor is one of the best boats that gives you a great combinations of great performance, great stability for the family, easy mast raising, & easy trailerability behind moderate sized family cars.   Trailer included.

The Day Sailor floats in only 7 " of water and only draws 3' 9" when the pivoting centerboard is in the down position.  The mast has been upgraded to a hinge type rather than the original keel step rigs.   The only wire to disconnect for rigging the standing rigging is the forestay.

The ample 145 square feet of sail area gives manageable sailing charactheristics for one to four.  The sides and decks have been rubbing compounded and starbrite polished.  She is a good looking boat.

The cuddy under the foredeck gives a place to stash your cooler and even some camping gear if you like.   The raised floor boards yield a boat that will "self bail" while in the water.

Good for the first time sailor or the experienced sailor she is unlikely to loose much in depreciation given the cost of replacement.   This is a very affordable sailboat and Rooke Sails stands ready to guarantee you a trade-in amount which would render this boat to be a much better investment than renting a boat once and a while.    Contact us for details.

Located at our yard in Memphis, all you need is a 1 & 7/8"  ball on the hitch on your tow vehicle and the desire to start having fun sailing ! !
