The 'Sundowner' Daysailer

Compact, striking, light and fast - and so simple to sail.


A modern performance daysailer, designed for relaxed, easy sailing in memorable, eye-catching style. An exercise in design and aesthetics, this example of performance art was designed to a strict list of criteria which has created a yacht unlike any other on the market today.

  • LOA - 26'
  • Lwl - 23'
  • Bmax - 8'3"
  • Max Disp - 2200kg, 4840 lb
  • Draft - 6'
  • Sail Area - 409 sq ft
  • Ballast - 50%

The characteristics of the rig and hull make sailing simply a 1 sheet, 1 tiller operation. She is designed with a fin and bulb keel to maximise performance and at 2.2t and 26’ she is easily handled in a marina with her option of diesel or electric drive.

The hull is built from wood/epoxy laminates using modern techniques to reduce weight whilst ensuring strength and durability. Down below the detail of the hull structure is picked out as a feature, more like a piece of furniture than the performance sailing hull it really is. The simple cabin contains 2 berths, a head and a small stove and sink. On deck the cockpit space is maximised and kept clear of ropes by the freestanding carbon wishbone rig.

The Sundowner will turn heads wherever she goes!
