A daysailer is simply a boat intended for short sails of less than a day in duration. Typically, they lack berths or a galley and their simplest forms, daysailers lack any form of cabin or storage area.
In a perhaps somewhat dated parlance, when a berths and a galley are added to a daysailer the boat becomes an overnighter or weekender.
