The Bruckmann Daysailer

For Immediate Release: February 17, 2005

Tuning the balance between performance daysailor and accommodating weekender, yacht designer Doug Zurn and builder Mark Bruckmann present a unique offering in the burgeoning midsize sailboat market. Compromises are few aboard the Bruckmann Daysailer, which features a fully-battened main, furling 100% genoa and MPS, electric winches, hydraulic boom vang and backstay, quiet, reliable Yanmar Saildrive power, shoal draft, over six feet of standing headroom below decks and accommodations for comfortable overnighting. 

The Bruckmann Daysailer rides the performance curve between cruiser and racer, sporting 898ft2 of sail area aloft, a classically-shaped hull displacing 17,503 pounds, over 8,000 pounds of which reside in a lead cast shoal fin, which offers plenty of righting leverage without compromising shallow water access. With a fixed appendage, more cabin space is allotted to accommodating the crew. Twin full-length settees convert to berths for extended itineraries, and a galley resides opposite the enclosed head aft, providing insulated refrigeration and storage for preparing meals at sea. 

Zurn proudly returns to his sailing roots with the Bruckmann Daysailer, a beautiful performance yacht with lines inspired by the past and materials and equipment inspired by the future. Built to the high standards customers have come to expect from Bruckmann Yachts, she will turn more than a few heads at her debut this fall at the 2005 Newport International Boat Show. With an anticipated base price of $490,000, the Bruckmann Daysailer offers good looks and performance at a very good value.
