The Sandpiper 565 is a small recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. It has a fractional sloop rig, a transom-hung rudder and a retractable fin keel. It displaces 1,200 lb (544 kg) and carries 300 lb (136 kg) of iron ballast.
The boat has a draft of 2.90 ft (0.88 m) with the keel down and 0.83 ft (0.25 m) with the keel retracted.
The design includes a high freeboard and a deep cockpit. It has sleeping accommodation for two adults and two small children below decks. The Sandpiper 565 was designed to be transported on a trailer towed by an automobile. With its fully retractable daggerboard keel it can operate in shallow water, including being easily beached.
