Beautiful Nimble 20 Sailboat for sale! Green hull yawl-rigged with lovely tanbark sails... prettiest little boat on the water, wherever she goes.

  • Very stable, not tippy... does NOT sail "rail-down!" Easy to set-up... easy to sail with its self-tending mizzen, balanced helm and forgiving nature. Produced by a company that used only the best materials and workmanship, and still produces top-quality boats today.

    Vessel is in excellent condition. Sails have not been used since being inspected, recut and resewn by local Doyle sailmaker. Sheets and halyards all new or one season old. Galvanized trailer has less than 200 miles on new axle, hubs, bearings, leaf springs and tires. Low hours on outboard; very reliable. Quarter berth cushions have new foam and upholstery; v-berth is original. VHF radio and antenna are included; not installed. Gel coat is in excellent condition; brightwork could use varnish. Not a "project" boat; ready to sail!

    This is the sailboat that fulfills all a "trailer-sailor's" dreams! Easy to trailer, no need to pay expensive dock rental fees. Legally trailer-able anywhere. Take it to wherever you want to sail, then bring it back home with you and dock it in your backyard! Easy to set-up; from arrival at the ramp to sailing away, 30 minutes. Room enough for a weeks-worth of stores and a comfortable home on the water for a day, a weekend or a full week. These boats are not often found for sale, and almost never available here in the north country. A great opportunity to own a beautiful boat of superior quality you'll always treasure.
