Sage™ 15

The Sage 15 is sophisticated enough for an experienced sailor and simple enough for beginners. Designed to handle your adventures and get you home safely, the Sage 15 comes standard with a non-skid coating on all horizontal surfaces, a self-draining cockpit, transom mounted boarding ladder, a bow pulpit, and positive flotation.   Also standard is a kick-up rudder to help avoid blade or transom damage in the event of unexpected shallows. A cabin-top mounted winch allows the daggerboard to be raised and lowered quickly and easily from the cockpit.

Description

Renowned boat designer, Jerry Montgomery is well known in the trailer sailor community from his pocket cruiser and dingy designs of the 1970s and 1980s.  After a hiatus from the pocket cruiser building business, Jerry came back to develop the Sage 15 for Sage Marine.

The Sage 15 is sophisticated enough for an experienced sailor and simple enough for beginners. Designed to handle your adventures and get you home safely, the Sage 15 comes standard with a non-skid coating on all horizontal surfaces, a self-draining cockpit, transom mounted boarding ladder, a bow pulpit, and positive flotation.   Also standard is a kick-up rudder to help avoid blade or transom damage in the event of unexpected shallows. A cabin-top mounted winch allows the daggerboard to be raised and lowered quickly and easily from the cockpit.

The resin-infused fiberglass hull with vinylester resin in a lapstrake style provides increased strength, tracking, and wave deflection.  Her deck and house are built with vinylester resin infused fiberglass and a balsa core; this strong lightweight construction saves more than 100 pounds versus a conventional layup and allows for an interior with no compression post.  The Sage 15’s Hull-to-Deck joint is chemically bonded and thru-bolted on 6″ centers for strength and dependability.

The fractional 3/4 sloop is easily rigged and provides excellent sailing performance. The mast assembly weighs approximately 20 pounds, making it easy to raise single-handedly.  Jib sheets run inside the shrouds allowing the Sage 15 to point higher into the wind and tack within 90 degrees.  225 pounds of lead ballast in the daggerboard’s bulb provides exceptional righting movement and at 800 pounds total weight for a standard boat, the Sage 15 will sail quickly in light airs and provide confident sailing in increasing winds.

Finished with mahogany accents, you’ll enjoy a sense of refinement in the open and airy cabin. Enjoy obstruction-free comfort in the adult-sized V-berth forward when the daggerboard is down and you’ll find comfortable seating for two just inside the companionway.  Add your personal touch with cabin cushions that are offered in a variety of colors.  Natural light and fresh air can fill your cabin with four opening stainless-steel portlights. Plentiful storage space can be found under the companionway and you’ll find two large lockers in the self-draining cockpit.  All running lines are accessible in the comfort and safety of the cockpit or companionway.
