Broker's Comments

These classic looking gaff rigged, shallow draught boats are perfect for exploring creeks and coastal inlets, plus sail well in light airs. The hull design originates from the traditional working sailing boats of the North West and Scottish coastlines. These traditional Day Boats can take up to 7 people on adventures and picnics.
The Coastal Day Boat has the same hull as the Coastal Weekender, if you are looking for over-night accommodation then check out the Coastal Weekender with twin quarter berths.
