Sail Mono Hulls :

Day Sailer 16

   

Built with modern materials and contemporary solution on deck and equipments but still keeping a classic look with teak wood functional inserts like the continuous handle fixed on coaming.

The hull keep the classic lap strake construction shape to give stiffness to the fiberglass laminate that result in a very light weight and strong shell. Unlike many smaller sailboats, sailing her there is not the least bit tippy.

We had sailed her out in some very stiff breezes and installed a large gennaker and, with a steady hand on the rudder and mainsheet, have been able to get her easily up past 7.5 knots. The rudder is from US company IDASAILOR and it is of an High performance true NACA airfoil blade section, with 316 stainless hardware and rudder head, solid HDPE plastic abrasion resistance blade. Rudder blade is held down with an intelligent solution with a 316 gas strut system, with one dynema (line to raise the rudder to 180 degrees for easy beaching. RIG it is from Nenuphar France in hollow aluminum mast and boom profile and sails are from Neil Pride China based sail maker, our sail supply. There are no need of winches, and the jib sheets are run through fairleads and held by cam cleats.

 

 

 

The hull is very solid build using interlaminate with coremat bulk mats on center of the frp skin, it is enough thick and more than able to take the kind of abuse anyone can dish out; smashing into docks, running too shallow up a concrete boat launch, etc. We have never noted more than surface scratches using tand testing this boat in a very hard way.

The centerboard uses a lanyard system through the top of the centerboard trunk.

The board kicks up when you hit shallows, and with it pulled fully up into the trunk you can beach her. Boat it is fined completed with strip teak-rubber on deck, cockpit and seats, all 316 stainless steel hardware, Lewmar deck hardware, a small Ronstan jib furler and very detailed world-class laminated mahogany and white ash tiller and bowsprit.
