For over ten years, Walker Bay has combined practical
innovation and advanced engineering to create a line of award-winning boats.
With the goal of getting more people on the water having fun, Walker Bay has
focused on functional innovations that improve performance while making boating
simpler and more carefree. Using only premium materials, components and
hardware, our sail kits are built to last and are backed by a 2-year limited
warranty. This, combined with our hands-on fine finishing and diligent attention
to detail, you can be assured of the finest quality.
The innovative Vang Cleat is simple, extremely durable
and easy to use. Constructed of high-tech Polycarbonate material that fuses
together several composites, it easily controls the shape of the sail with no
moving parts, making it virtually indestructible.
The high-performance rudder blade combines a super
durable composite glass-filled Nylon rudder head with a hydrodynamic lightweight
aluminium foil. It also includes an easy to use universal articulating tiller
extension, which allows steering from various positions and is easily stowable
A hydrodynamic lightweight aluminium foil was developed
for our daggerboards, to create a board that combines maximum stiffness with
Simple to rig and easy to sail, Walker Bay sail boats are
competitive on all tacks versus other boats in their class. Pointing ability is
optimized through a combination of hull design, sail plan and daggerboard
performance. A hinged telescopic tiller extension allows steering from various
positions within the boat and will easily retract, ultimately yielding comfort
and fast transitions for every level of sailor.
Designed by experts on the international racing circuit,
Walker Bay sail kits are loaded with performance features to enhance your
experience on the water. A computer generated hydrodynamic lightweight aluminium
foil was created for our daggerboards. Combining maximum stiffness, minimum
weight and maximum surface area on the daggerboard enables the boat to point
better into the wind while still maintaining speed. By using a combination of
glass-filled finer reinforced nylon and lightweight 6061 extruded aluminium, we
have created a rudder blade that maximizes its high strength to weight ratio.
As, a result, the rudder blade is stiffer, lighter and will last longer over
time. This innovation creates superior upwind ability, responsiveness, turning,
tacking and acceleration.
