  The DN Iceboat....High speed winter time fun. (C. Firmbach photo 1,  NEIYA photo 2, T. Marran photo 3)

       

A design that came out of a contest from the "Detroit News"  in 1935, at only 12 feet in length and easily home built the DN quickly became the fastest growing ice boat class in the world.  Today, an international class sailed on more than 3 continents, the boat is still similar to its original design.  Weeks Yacht began building DNs in 1979. For more information go to the International DN Ice Yacht Racing Association.

Weeks Yacht Yard builds and restores iceboats of all sizes and types.
