The Megabyte was 2000 Sailing World Boat of the Year.
Super stiff hull from quality Canadian builder PS2000. Great singlehanded racing design. Comfortable hiking. Stable, very fast planing hull. This boat is by all accounts a joy to sail! Ideal for one-design, club, or Portsmouth racing, Double-handed cruising. A single-hander designed to avoid all of the technical problems of the laser.
Mylar Sail (well used), Carbon 2-part mast, Aluminum boom, Aluminum rudder & daggerboard, tiller & extension (plus padded foil bag), Mast/boom racks, Top boat cover, Fitted gear bags (so you don't lose your stuff when you capsize), Trailer with launch guides, all hiking straps, running rigging/control lines.
Class has new builder, Zim Sailing,
(http://www.zimsailing.com/megabyte.html) with new boats ~$9,000 (without trailer, covers, padded foil bag, fitted gear bags).
I've never enjoyed a boat more than the Megabyte - This is the best boat I ever sailed – everything works just right. I'm only selling because my wife wants to start racing with me again.
Viewings/test sails are welcome and delivery may be negotiated within a reasonable range.
Sailing Texas has come through again! Thanks a million, my Megabyte has sold, with only two Nigerian scam emails before a "real one" contacted me.
