The YW Dayboat is a roomy, stable and seaworthy dinghy with a particularly good windward performance in rough water. These craft are extensively used for day sailing, cruising and instruction. The main racing fleets are based at Poole, the Bristol Channel and the Thames Estuary. These boats are relatively stable due to the steel centre board and the thickness of the fibreglass making them very stable. They make excellent boats for family cruising in coastal or inland waters.
Blondie is Dayboat Nr 463. She has been sailed in both coastal and inland waters. She is very solidly constructed of fibreglass with timber seating, rudder etc . The mast and boom are alloy.
Unfortunately, the only water Blondie has seen recently is rainwater – although she has been well protected by her tailor made weatherproof cover. We just haven’t had the time to use her.
She comes with a trailer, which has just had new bearings fitted. The trailer is not original and although she is sitting quite happily on it, it would benefit from some minor modifications to achieve a better fit.
There is a set of sails – although they have been wrapped up in their sail bag for several years now, so you probably won’t win any races with them!
In summary, a great classic sailing dinghy which does need some minor work to get her back on the water. The good thing is that most of the work is relatively cosmetic and requires time rather than a lot of cost. However, once complete, she will provide some lucky buyer with a lot of fun and enjoyment.
I would strongly urge any prospective buyer to come and view Blondie before bidding. You are very welcome to view and ask any questions.
Clearly you will need to collect Blondie from her current location near Melksham. Cash on collection preferred.
