The Sonar is a 23 ft performance-oriented day sailor with comfortable seating for 4-6 adults. Our Sonar is equipped with a roller furling jib, all new standing rigging, sturdy sails built for day-in, day-out use, and all the safety equipment required by federal law and then some. It has a self-bailing cockpit, clear visibility under the boom for sailing in a busy harbor, and a modest cuddy forward to stow your gear while sailing. Because the Sonar has no running lights it must be returned to its mooring by sunset.
MEMBER BENEFITS: Sonar members enjoy unlimited daily and weekend use of the boat in concert with other Sonar members. Membership covers participation in the Club’s Wednesday evening racing program.
SAILING LIMITS: The Sonar may be sailed anywhere in Boston Harbor.
MEMBER QUALIFICATIONS: Sonar membership requires BHSC/ASA/USS/RYA Basic Keelboat or equivalent certification or sufficient prior experience on similar boats, plus chart reading experience needed to to navigate safely in Boston Harbor.

OPTIONAL DAMAGE WAIVER: The damage waiver relieves you of liability for damages to the boat and/or other boats caused by collisions with other boats or by running aground. It does not cover loss/breakage of equipment or damage caused by gross negligence.
