1975 Guppy 13

  • very good condition. I have added a New Minn-Kota electric motor and a New marine deep cycle battery. The sails are in good condition, the stays are good, and all rigging is in good usable condition. This is a very enjoyable boat to sail and easy to pull. This boat is very easy to get ready to sail, one person can rig the boat within 20 minutes. I will show the buyer how to set it up for a great day on the water.

    Guppy 13, made by Melen Marine Ltd. in California. They made about 300 of them in the period between 1974 and 1975. The Guppy is a fiberglass boat with a shoal draft keel, and sleeps 2 adults in a 6 ft 8 in long cabin.

  • LOA 12'6"
  • Beam 5'7"
  • Displacement 480 lb empty with 150 lb of ballast
  • Draft 1'7"

    It has a Bermuda rig consisting of a 32 square feet high aspect main sail and a 48 square feet jib. Length at waterline was 11 ft 10 inches. The shallow V hull was not designed to plane, but is very capable at cutting through choppy water.

    Included but not pictured - Hatch cover, Companion way cover, and original cabin cushions (they will need to be recovered).

    The trailer has new lights and wiring, new tires and wheels. The wheel bearings have been serviced and have bearing buddy's on them. The trailer is factory made for this boat and is in good road worthy condition.
