Interested in purchasing a used American Daysailor 14.6?


The American 14.6 is designed for the beginning sailor or those who are seeking a large, stable sloop that offers hassle-free sailing. This sturdy, deep-cockpit daysailer features a 6-foot 2-inch beam, glass kick-up rudder, weighted glass centerboard, and a large built-in storage compartment under the deck.

The large cockpit offers room for four adults with generous freeboard, comfortable seats and backrest, and includes locations for two drink coolers at the end of the seats. The hull is designed to be 80-percent self-bailing, and floats high in the water with a minimum 4-inch draft when empty.

Simplicity is enhanced with color-coded main and jib lines, and features simple up and down colored lines for centerboard control. The tabernacle mast allows for quick stepping and easy retrieval at the end of the day.

The American 14.6 is also equipped with an advanced rudder system that can be raised or lowered from the cockpit and is designed to kick-up and spring down as necessary. The main and jib contain 112 square feet of Dacron sail which – combined with the wide beam, hard chine, and flat bottom hull – performs well in light breezes or a stiff wind.

The American 14.6 is recognized as an extremely stable, large, dry, daysailer providing fun for all ages. Optional features include a roller furling jib, spinnaker package, boom vang, motor mount, boat cover, and mooring cover.

This boat is constructed of hand-laid fiberglass with closed cell floatation and non-skid flooring in the cockpit. Anodized spars and Harken blocks among other quality parts assure years of maintenance free use for the new owner.
