Davidson 20

Budget Price Maximum Fun

The Davidson M20 is a big-volume small boat that has been providing affordable memorable sailing holidays in the Bay of Islands for many satisfied sailors over many years.

Perfect for the compact sheltered waters of the bay they are fun and responsive to sail, with a generous cockpit and sitting headroom down below.  Whilst they have been well used, they are well-loved and these boats have undergone significant ongoing refurbishment to ensure you have an enjoyable, hassle-free holiday afloat.

Your Davidson M20 will be your activity and accommodation all in one, allowing you to explore and enjoy the Bay of Islands whilst holidaying on a budget.

Being small has its benefits, you can get right up to the beach.  The lifting keel gives you plenty of cruising options, a very generous cockpit and balanced rig make it comfortable to sail.  Down below there is good sitting headroom with a fixed table, galley, separate head, and generous berths.  All the cruising gear and safety equipment you need for a great sailing holiday are aboard.

  • Very comfortable with four aboard for day sailing.
  • Ideal for two people for longer stays.
  • Think camping afloat!
