Get to Know Our Fleet

Our Keel Boats

RANGER 23 (5 available)

Different Drummer, California Girl, Dingo, Qilla, Sea Gal, (Rascal-coming soon)

These cute boats are favorites of our students, club members, and charterers. These boats designed by Gary Mull, were built for the winds and waters of San Francisco Bay. Most of ours are single hand rigged. Each have several headsail choices to match the winds of the day

Ranger 26


Islander 28


Ericson 32

Bay Dreamer

Targa 34


This full keeled beauty is used primarily for our off-shore classes and advanced courses such as Heavy Weather strategies and ASA 104. This blue water cruiser is the hearty gem of our fleet.

Pearson 35


This full-keel Pearson 35 is a classic with traditional design, contemporary styling, solid construction, and eminently livable space both in the cockpit and below decks.

CAL 2-25 (2 available)

Cool Passion & Burning Desire

Designed by C. William “Bill” Lapworth, this stout 25 ft keelboat is comfortable below deck and fun to sail.  The Cal 25-2 performs well in light winds, due to its tall rig, large sail area, flat bottom and balanced keel.  Roomy below deck, ruggedly constructed, and fun to helm, the Cal 25-2 sails like a bigger boat, making it an ideal choice for daysailing or coastal cruising with a small family.

Ericson 27


Pearson 31


Ericson 34


One of our most popular charter vessels, a fun boat to sail that handles well on the bay with comfortable space for many guests.  A great choice for overnight sailing adventures. Anthem is also one of our school's high-level ASA course boats.

Nancy II

Nancy is another one of our popular charter vessels, with an open cockpit, spacious interior, and gleaming white decks. Nancy also takes out our overnight ASA courses, captained, and member chartered sails.

Fountaine Pajot Catamaran
