Wooden Ships Comments on this Yachting World Dayboat

Yachting World Dayboat No.668, built at the Lyme Regis Boatbuilding School in 2010.

One of only a handful of newly built wooden YW Dayboats, she has a current measurement certificate allowing her to race with the modern fleet.

She has proved to be competitive with the modern GRP yachts.

She was planked in spruce to save weight, that saving was used to install several ring frames into the hull to increase her stiffness.  The run of the underwater planks has been altered slightly to improve the hydrodynamics and improve performance.

The Yachting World Dayboat has been a very successful design, fast and fun to sail but also a very capable cruising dinghy.  Her forward buoyancy makes her dry in a chop and the foredeck gives good shelter with a spray rail to throw off the green water.

This boat is a complete package with trailer, cover and a full race ready rig.  She has only been afloat a handful of times and is presented in very smart condition ready to go sailing.
