” Minimum maintenance Maximum pleasure ”
DAY.M8 (DAY MATE)
A robust and elegant daysailer with exquisite sailing characteristics and stability, that’s how you describe the DAY.M8. Classic lines above water level, combined with a new-fashioned hull form. Easy to manage single-handed or in the company of your partner and friends. The method of construction together with the choice of material for fittings, rigging and accessories, ensure a high level of quality with little maintenance. These qualities make the DAY.M8 the perfect daysailer. They make sure that you’re able to do what you came for; sailing on beautiful inland waters, close by and further away.
Flowing lines, proper ratio and a perfect balance represent the DAY.M8. Built in fiberglass-reinforced polyester, with an outer skin of vinyl ester. This glass fiber layer provides optimal protection against osmosis. In places where strong forces occur, such as around the keel suspension, chain plates and mast compression, extra glass fabric is laminated.
The name ‘Bood’ can’t be a coincidence. In Dutch it’s almost similar for the word ‘boat’. Bood and boats have proven to be a great combination. At a young age it was clear for Klaas Bood that he would find his passion in yacht building. Drawing boats, and building them to scale in wood, was just the beginning.
Full polyester hull with vinyl ester outer layer. Gel coat in RAL 9010, with
striping in the colour of your choice. Deck in sandwich polyester with anti-slip planes. Gel coat in RAL 9010. The gunwale on the bulwark, and the frame on the cockpit edge have been implemented in Flexiteak. Keel with bulb, mounted and laminated to the hull. Balance rudder with stainless steel rudder and tiller.
