Capri 18, 1989

  • sailboat by Catalina Yachts.
  • S/V "Later"
  • Hull # 390

    Located in Panama City Beach, Florida

  • Price: $4450
  • LOA= 18'
  • LWL= 16.33'
  • Beam = 7.58'
  • Weight= 1500#
  • Draft = 2.33
  • Sail Area = 155 sq ft

    This package includes:

  • Crisp main, jib (100%) and a genoa (155%) sails with new sheets. Also sail bags for the headsails and covers for all.
  • Mast and boom in great shape, standing rigging was almost totally replaced this past winter (except headstay)
  • New halyards, also replaced this winter.
  • Lazy jacks installed this winter
  • All lines lead back to cabin, including a downhaul on the headsail, to make dropping the sail easy for single handed sailing.
  • The bottom was painted last Autumn (2014) and since the boat is stored on the trailer, it is in great shape.
  • Trailer is also in good shape, with new bearing and tires. Also includes an 8' tongue extension to make ramp launching a breeze. The custom trailer has a keel guide for easy loading of the boat and takes a 1 7/8" ball

    Accessories include:

  • VHF radio
  • Fish finder / depth sounder
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Throwable floation device
  • Day signal kit
  • Anchor with chain and rode line (newly mounted anchor holder installed on bow)
  • Boat hook
  • Dock lines
  • And a couple of PFDs (I don't recall how many are on the boat)
  • KICKER Motor available for purchase at $1000, and is not included in the boat package.

  • The Capri 18 has an extra long cockpit with 6' 10" contoured seats. And the cabin includes a forward V-berth and two 7 1/2 foot long quarter berths that can convert into a single large bunk. Large portlights and a forward hatch for ventilation; a complete electrical (battery) system including cabin lights, and navigation lights. There is also a fish finder / depth finder and a VHF radio. Plenty of storage above and below decks, including a molded-in fuel locker and storage area. A 48 quart portable cooler doubles as a companionway step and there is a porta-potty (never used) in that cabin as well.

    This great boat is stable, yet light enough to be towed and launched by a small SUV (weights about 2500#). For more about the Capri 18 by Catalina, see

    There is also a strong owners support network (on Facebook and Yahoo Groups), and as Catalina still makes this boat, parts are easily attained from the factory.

    This boat has been mostly trailer sailed, and is currently set up for trailer launching at a local marina. I purchased it just last December and spent 2.5 months getting her ready to sail. This boat is very enjoyable to sail, but without proper bathroom facilities, my wife has encouraged me to obtain a boat with a marine head, so I have to sell this one. I hope to sell her to someone who will appreciate her and enjoy her as much as I have. She has a well balanced helm carriers thought tacks smoothly and is stable in both light and heavy air. Lightly used boat, is a great pocket cruiser for the beginner or experienced sailor. Very easy to sail, but not boring.
