2005 Walker Bay 10 but still brand new, bought at recent auction.
The Walker Bay 10 Performance Sail Kit is exciting and easy sailing in a 10F boat. This rig comes with high end rigging features including the adjustable retractable tiller extension and a fully retractable composite rudder while still being easy to rig or breakdown and store. The high aspect sail profile and aluminum daggerboard optimize speed and upwind performance, while the adjustable retractable tiller and on/off ratchet block offer better maneuverability and handling. It's perfect for those who want performance in a bigger boat while still keeping it easy.
Walker Bay’s Rigid Inflatable Dinghy (RID) combines the best features of a rigid hull dinghy with the stability and utility of an inflatable. The Variable Profile Design (VPD) tube, unique to Walker Bay, engages with the water when required, providing exceptional lateral stability.
How it Works
With a light load and moderate seas, the VPD tube does not engage and the bow cuts gracefully through water. In heavier seas or as the load shifts, the VPD tube engages as required for lateral stability. The VPD tube engages for larger loads. The RID is the ideal balance of performance and safety in a tender. With more built-in versatility, larger cockpit space for passengers and cargo and a hull that puts out minimal wake and tracks easily while under tow, the RID is the most exciting boating innovation in years!
The Walker Bay 10 offers more comfort, space, stability and, weighing only 126 pounds… it's still easy for a couple to carry or for one person to roll. The 10 also comes with an integrated cockpit floor and is rated for a higher horsepower motor.
