Vagabond 17, 1980

Fully Restored 17 Feet 1980 Vagabond / Holder Pocket Cruiser with galvanized trailer and many extras in very nice condition!

  • This is an all fiberglass (no wood) hull with no soft spots!
  • Just finished polishing and waxing the original gelcoat, no painted surfaces!
  • "Spacious, seaworthy, and swift, the Vagabond 17 is a proof that sometimes even the best boats go out of production" (Small Craft Advisor Review of the 17 Vagabond/Holder 17 - I will email article per request).

    Includes New, never used Main Sail, the original Main sail and a nice Jib and Genoa. All sails stored inside the home in sailbags!

    New swing keel brake winch and cable, New interior PVC Panels and Cabin Doors, Teak Floor Grate. Electronics include: Compass, Depth Finder, GPS, Speed Knot Indicator, VHF Portable Radio, Deep Cycle Sealed Battery, Exteriors/Interior Lighting. Sink with Hand-pump Faucet Water System, Porta-Potty, All Cushions, New Tires and Galvanized Rims, Tongue Extension, Solo Mast Raising System, Anchor with rode, Fenders, and cover for outdoor storage.

  • It also includes a 12VDC Electric Trolling Motor for easy motoring in and out marinas.

    You can enjoy this fully restored Vagabond 17 for a fraction of what a new comparable sailboat like the Montgomery 17 costs ($26,000 - $29,000). The Vagabond 17 is a fast, roomy, safe weekender that you can afford.
