Welcome to the Yachting World Dayboat Association
The Yachting World Dayboat (YWDB) is a classic dinghy which blends stability and seaworthiness with good performance. Its length of 14ft (4.3m), beam of 5ft 8” (1.7m) and metal centre plate means it is a stable family dinghy for safe day sailing and its small foresail can be handled easily. It is ideal for a (drying) mooring but the modern combination trailers make launch, sailing and recovery a relatively straightforward activity for adults.
We welcome new members with an interest in YW Dayboats and support owners of existing boats to get the maximum pleasure from their ownership wherever they sail, race or cruise.
