This is a 1998 Sail # 3 and comes with a good trailer and Nissan 4hp outboard Also I have a Ginpole that mounts on the trailer for mast removal and stepping.

I've owned this boat for the last 10 years and absolutely love it.
Prior to purchasing this cat boat I owned a Hershoff 18 catboat and liked it As well, but it was not even close to having the same ease of sailing And performance. My only reason for selling is my age 86 and current health.
The boat is on a hydro hoist so has has a perfect bottom albeit also With bottom paint so could be docked in the water. AND is available for A test sail with a days notice.
I still sail it every couple weeks and it is Solid and in great sailing condition. All it needs is a good clean up and A little TLC Offered for $14000 OBO
The boat is located at Austin Yacht Club, Lake Travis TX
