Lightning, 1963

1963 Lightning Sailboat #10832 For Sale

Bought this as a boat I was going to keep and race in the HUGE Lightning Sailboat Fleet around the Ohio River Valley.

  • Sadly I have too many boats and this one has to go.
  • It is rock solid and been stored covered and dry.
  • All original Paperwork included with the boat, back to the original invoice!! pretty cool.

  • Mahogany Cockpit and Coamings.
  • Mahogany rudder
  • Painted Steel Centerboard, no rust
  • Aluminum Mast, wooden boom
  • Aluminum Spinnaker Pole
  • Hiking straps included.
  • Steel Trailer included, needs some TLC, but towed from Indianapolis to Louisville with no problems
  • Rock solid fiberglass construction with integral foam coring for floatation.
  • Main, Jib and Spinakker included. Old but in good shape.
  • Everything is there to go sailing, or this would make a great cadidate for an easy winter restoration/update to modern fittings.

    I wound up donating that boat for a fundraiser for Leukemia and Lymphoma society.
