Devon Dayboats. Updated August 2021.
Devon Dayboat DD16
The sailing rig is adapted to enable trailer towing with all spars stowed & single handed rigging/mast stepping & more comfortable, safer single handed/ family sailing.
The jib has a furler, both mainsails have a row of reefing points & the mizzen is reduced in size & clears the storage & use of outboard engine on the transom bracket.
The cuddy has water-tight bench lockers, a 12v battery kept fully charged by a 20 watt solar panel on roof of cuddy. A 12v usb & ‘cigar lighter’ sockets are in the cuddy. Bed-boards create a single berth. A canvas ‘curtain’ can be press studded to enclose the cuddy at night.
The boom tent is easily raised on the boom for additional cover in the cockpit. A Lowrance fish finder/depth guage/speed indicator is fitted in the cuddy.
An automatic/manual 12v electric pump is fitted.
There is a spare rudder, tiller & bowsprit, & booms/ spars for both mainsails.
The Indespension trailer is ideal, having a rear swing cradle with new wobble rollers (new since photos) to enable easy, hassle free launching & recovery in shallow water. I recently fitted side docking arms to trailer to help alignment & prevent tide/wind/waves from moving boat off the centre rollers when recovering on slipway. The trailer is braked & has a fresh water flushing system rigged up to connect a hose to flush out salt water from brakes should trailer be submerged in salt water. Good tyres & a spare wheel carrier & wheel is fitted to trailer. To replace this trailer would cost over £2000.
The boat has 2 covers, one is new & covers the cockpit when the mizzen mast is not erected, & an older one for use when the mizzen is stepped into place.
The boat is antifouled with “eroding” antifoul paint.
Included in the sale are:-
2x 7 foot oars, fenders, 4hp two stroke Mariner outboard motor that had a full service & overhaul last year. The Honda outboard seen in the photos is not included in the sale. Various other bits of tack can be included such as plough anchor, man overboard buoyancy, emergency flares (out of date), life jackets etc, if good price attained.
Only selling because I am now finding her too heavy to heave around on my drive or storage yard.
