The Downtown Sailing Center (DSC) has a fleet of nearly forty boats, both daysailers and cruisers, as well as a handful of small powerboats. Many of the daysailers and all of the cruisers and powerboats have been donated to the DSC. Much of the fleet maintenance is performed by DSC members on a volunteer basis. Boats that are donated to the DSC are maintained — and, in many cases, restored — by members, then put into the fleet to be used in the DSC's programs and activities. Many of the cruisers are offered for sale after being part of the DSC's programs for three years.


We have an active fleet of 10 J/22s, a widely popular design, sailed all over the world. These performance keelboats are nimble, stable and able to plane under spinnaker.

We keep an active rotation of five Sonars, agile 23’ keelboats designed by Bruce Kirby. They have spacious cockpits and a large sail area. The high boom, angled back bench seats and high coamings make this boat ideal for accessible sailing and a favorite among day sailors.

We have 13 Access 303W dinghies, 10’ sloop-rigged dinghies that can be sailed double- or single-handedly, with a crew capacity of 350 pounds. The low cockpit seat and weighted centerboard create a low center of gravity, making the boat virtually uncapsizable. The cockpit layout, unstayed mast and high boom make this sailboat highly accessible. The roller furled sail plan with single line reefing and other simple controls offer ease of maneuverability. These features make this sailboat very safe and exciting for a large range of sailing abilities.
