Following are excerpts from a Hurley 18 brochure:
The three-berth Hurley 18 was designed by Ian Anderson with offshore performance in mind and, possibly, to be sailed by the ex-dinghy sailor who has graduated to a boat in which he can sail much farther afield without losing the lively 'feel' of a class dinghy.
This modern design in glass fibre won a place in the 'Top Ten' at the Weymouth (England) 'One-of-a-Kind' Rally in 1966 and is built to Lloyd's specification with, of course, a Lloyd's Series Production Certificate and registered number. The deep keel and good ballast/weight ratio ensure that the '18' is a stiff and comfortable boat at sea, whilst her ability to work to windward is excellent.
5-oz. Terylene is used for the 180 sq.ft. (16.7 q.m.) of working sail are as well as for the Genoa and storm jib, which are available as optional 'extra's'. A spinnaker of 2-oz. nylon, together with all necessary gear, is another 'optional'. Sheets for all sails are of plaited nylon, with Ulstron being used for running rigging. Mast and boom are of maintenance-free aluminium and, of course, all spar fittings and the standing rigging are of high-specification stainless steel. Roller reefing gear is standard on the Hurley 18 - as are the stemhead roller and the self-draining cockpit. Below decks a galley unit with a working surface of plastic laminate is placed conveniently to port of the companion-way and forward of this is a folding table which, when not in use, rests against the hull. Below the working surface are two lockers, whilst at the back will be found cutlery and crockery spaces. Two lockers are placed on either side of the bridge deck bulkhead, and these are easily accessible from the cockpit. A 'quarter' berth to starboard and two berths in the forepeak (which can be made into a double berth) complete the accomodation. Ample stowage is available under all berths and enclosed shelves are to be found over the forward berths.
I sold the Hurley Sailboat. Only got $1500. I recieved most of my reponses from your website, it was very helpful.
