Johnson M16, 1970

This Johnson M16 is a 16 foot sloop (single mast with mainsail and jib).

The M-16 has always been the people's scow. From its nimble handling and easy sailing characteristics the M has developed many of the finest sailors yet provided fun enjoyable sailing to the family or the most competitive of sailors. It is solid and relatively easy to sail, however it is more advanced than a Sunfish sailboat. It is an excellent craft for family crews and younger sailors alike.

The M16 is perfect for 2 moderately sized people to race or pleasure sail. The boat has all the sail-handling adjustments of a modern sloop and a scow hull design that makes her very fast and lively. The M16 is quick to respond and in some windy situations can be exciting to sail. With that said it also can be fun to sail on days of moderate wind to just enjoy the wind and sun on most any lake. The M16 has a minimal draft and can be beached for picnics etc.

This is a clean / solid boat and will return years of fun and entertainment for a small investment versus purchasing new. You must see this boat to appreciate the condition.
