About Daysailer Weekender Boats for Sale
Sailing and Endless Possibilities
Sailing offers travel in a way that is both practical and luxurious. When sailing, there is not always a need for a massive 100’+ vessel. Remarkable sailing can be found in daysailers and weekender boats. These boats are considerably smaller than that of a larger cruising yacht, ranging in size from 10’ to 25’. They are easy to trailer and fun to enjoy. If you are in the market for a sailing vessel, consider the many daysailer and weekender boats for sale.Read More
The daysailer and the weekender boats are constructed from various materials. Generally, the boats have the modern fiberglass design. However, depending upon the style that you desire, you may be able to find wooden constructed daysailer and weekender boats for sale.
Daysailer features and design
Although daysailers and weekenders are categorized together, there are some fundamental differences. Daysailers are primarily intended for freshwater adventures, inshore boating, and day trips offshore. Due to their small size, it is ill-advised to use the daysailer for extended excursions offshore.
Daysailers are known for their simplistic design. They may have one or two sails with a single mast structure. Unlike other larger sailboats that require the use of an outboard motor, the basic structure of daysailers enables them to be powered by a sail and rudder system alone.
Both single and double hull configurations are available for the vessels.
Weekenders features and design
Differing from the daysailer, the weekenders have a slightly longer LOA as well as cabin availability. Due to this, weekenders are more suitable for multi-day, offshore adventures. However, it is still advised when using a weekender, to have a larger outboard motorized vessel nearby (ideally using the weekender as a tender).
A weekender sailboat typically includes a smaller interior cabin with little more than a full berth with a possible second berth option. Some of the luxury style weekenders can house amenities such as a full galley and head compartments, but the size of the sailboats, require the interior space to be compact.
When choosing weekender sailboats, the owner can also choose from an open cockpit or a closed space resembling cabin cuddy boats.
Where to Use Your Daysailer/Weekender Boat
There are many places in Florida, where you can use your daysailer/weekender boats. Floridians may wish to join the many sailing clubs available throughout the state. Apart from the racing events in Tampa, Key West, and Miami (to name a few), the sailing clubs of Florida provide a sense of culture and community unique to this style of boating.
If you do not wish to join one of the sailing communities, you can still enjoy the boats functionally. Due to the V-hull design, both the daysailer and the weekender can be used in both saltwater and freshwater. Keep in mind that rougher water raise the risk of capsizing, and so sailing into a bay, in the Keys, or Gulf are preferred over offshore Atlantic excursions.
