12' Fiberglass “Scamp” Sailboat, “Time Bandit,” with new cover and trailer.
Excellent Condition - $14,000 o.b.o.:
Coral Gables, Florida.
World-famous New Zealand sailboat designer, John Welsford, designed “Scamp”to be built out of wood.
The design became so popular that Gig Harbor Boat Works in Washington State agreed to produce them in fiberglass.
“Time Bandit” was one of the first off the line in 2014 and she is in excellent condition.
Bullet-proof, highest standard of construction.
Just 420 lbs., so easily trailerable anywhere behind the smallest car.
Water-ballasted, unsinkable and easily righted.
Her off-center board kicks up into one of the side benches and her kick-up rudder means that she sails in a foot of water and is beachable anywhere. Simple, balanced-lug rig drops into lazy-jacks at anchor or dockside. A single halyard hoists the one sail to be back underway in an instant.
She motors beautifully with just 2 h.p. on the motor mount (motor not included). If you would rather have the quiet, she comes with Kevlar two-piece oars and rows effortlessly. Cuddy-cabin for shelter. Holds two for an easy day’s sail but will take four (and a dog) for a tootle out to a sandbar under power. A very big little boat.
I love her but the expanding boat collection means something has to give! Call me if interested.
