Precision 18, 1989 sailboat for sale

  • $13,800

    Description:

  • Sail La Vie is a one of a kind. She is a 1989 Precision 18 hull number 280. She has been outfitted to go comfortably cruising in a small trailer-able sailboat, plain and simple.
  • She makes all of her own electricity with 300 watts of solar and an outboard equipped alternator.
  • She keeps food cold or frozen with her 12v refrigerator/freezer. Her sail plan includes a 150 Genoa on a roller furler, 2 reef points on the main with single line reefing on both points, an adjustable backstay, and all sheets and halyards leading aft to the cockpit.
  • She is equipped with an auto tiller for long days of cruising, a Rudder Craft kick up rudder with matching crutch for ease of beaching and trailering, and a full cockpit bimini for protection from the sun on those hot sunny days.
  • Sail La Vie has been my cruising companion on extended trips of the Florida 120 in Pensacola bay, the Main Island Trail, and the Chesapeake bay. She is also great just to go for an evening sunset sail in her home waters on the Susquehanna River.
  • My goal has been to make her as safe, comfortable, and easy to single hand sail and trailer as I could.
