Welcome to Sarns Hardware, your Ice Optimist and DN Class Ice Yacht hardware specialists!

The DN Class Ice Yacht was originally designed in 1937 as a home workshop project sponsored by the Detroit News.  The DN is a one man primarily wooden hulled craft that carries 60 sq. ft. of sail on a mast made of wood, fiberglass,image aluminum or carbon fiber.  Most boats are constructed by their owners… and Sarns Hardware can meet all of your Ice Yachting hardware needs.

The fact that these boats are lightweight, sporty, inexpensive to build and are easily transported on the roof of the car has helped the DN Class Ice Yacht to become the most popular model in the world.

Sarns strives to provide the best DN hardware available in the world.
