Precision 18, 1986

In ready-to-sail condition. Just pop in water and off you go.

  • Good condition, used in fresh water only. No leaks. Gelcoat has some minor crazing appropriate for age.
  • Sails: Crisp Jib, 120 Genoa, and Main; all have only been used a dozen or so times, as have the running rigging and lazy jacks. Standing rigging in good condition.
  • Custom Lewmar mainsheet traveler system, boom vang and reefing. Provision for adding adjustable backstay.
  • Reliable, start-first-pull 1986 Suzuki 4hp outboard with new impeller, gear oil and spark plugs.
  • Eazyload galvanized trailer with winch and custom extending tongue. Bearings and tires have less than 1,000 miles on them. New spare tire. Lights work.
  • New cushion covers and porta-potti.
  • Fly screens and a custom transparent rain tarp keep you bug-free, light and dry.
  • Anchor and rode
  • Swim ladder
  • Fenders, assorted lines


  • LOA --17' 5"
  • LWL -- 15' 5"
  • BEAM -- 7' 5"
  • DRAFT, Board up -- 1' 6"/ Board down -- 4' 3"
  • Displacement -- 1100 lbs.
  • Ballast -- 350 lbs

    All the equipment (and some spares) necessary for towing, launching and sailing.

  • This is a fast, well-balanced sailboat which can be trailered with a car or left at a dock for the season.
  • The only thing you will need is a wash sponge for the decks, as I have concentrated on making this a great trailer-sailer rather than a photo opportunity.
