Catalina Capri 18, 1998

For sale a highly upgraded and well taken care of trailerable sailboat. Boat is in like new condition and recently had bottom paint redone.

Being the little brother to the venerable Capri 22 it is a well performing, great sailing boat , with a six foot plus cockpit and a cabin that will hold all your gear and sleep two comfortably (and together!) or 2 adults and 2 children. The boat has a wing keel and is easy to get on and off the trailer using the included tongue extension.

We have had many weeklong adventures in this boat including multiple trips to Catalina and it has always inspired confidence in the boat's sailing ability. Interestingly enough the boat made the cover of Small Craft Advisor on a week long sail event that occurred in Lake Havasu.

This boat has advanced electronics for it size including a Vesper marine AIS transponder that includes a 50 channel GPS. It is receives other boats AIS signals and also transmits your signal to other boats (Handy to have when sailing in busy shipping areas!). This system will interface via an on-board wi-fi network to an iPAD running INavX which makes an awesome chart plotter. It also provides a GPS signal via a NMEA network and is linked to both the VHF radio for DSC functions and to the wiring for a Raymarine ST1000 tiller pilot (not included) so that your iPAD can provide waypoint/track information to your tiller pilot.
