Sail YSL, based in Richterswil/ZH, is Switzerland’s English sailing school, and was appointed sole Swiss distributor for Wayfarer dinghies and all other Hartley Boats models in 2013.

As instructors ourselves, we are proud to be able to import and sell the boats that we have chosen to use for our teaching work and to advise our students when they are ready to buy a boat of their own.

Uniquely in the industry, Hartley Boats focuses on building training and cruising boats, marked by stability and robustness without sacrificing performance. If you represent a school or club looking to expand your fleet, or if you are a private individual looking for a fun boat that doesn’t require extensive qualifications to sail, then we have a model to meet your needs.

We deliberately carry just a careful selection of models as featured on this website, rather than the full Hartley Boats range. However, if you are interested in one of the other models built by Hartley Boats, please talk to us as we can still supply them to you. All the boats we sell are officially classified as below 15 m2 sail area, so no Swiss sailing licence is required to sail them.

Drop us a line or feel free to give us a call on +41 79 277 0623 to book an appointment for a test sail. We speak English and German and can correspond in French.
