Sanibel 17, 1986

The Sanibel 17 is a well designed, easy to trailer, and easy to sail boat. With a total towing weight of under 2000 lbs on the trailer, it can easily be towed by almost any vehicle. The nearly 8' beam creates a spacious cockpit that comfortably seats four, and the the high combing keep the occupants dry. 400 lbs of ballast in the keel makes it stiff and comfortable in a breeze. Lifelines and bow and stern pulpit add an extra measure of safety for cruisers with children. The offset centerboard design hides the trunk under to port berth, opening up the cabin which features four opening portholes and a forward hatch for sail camping. Sail suite includes main, jib, and 135 genoa, all in good condition.
