1996 Johnson 18

  • produced by Johnson Boat Works

    This is a boat that was produced for the 1996 Atlanta, Georgia Olympics. They were specifically designed as a new boat that men and women could sail and race with out anyone having an advantage. It is also the 100th anniversary edition of Johnson Boat Works. This boat has been sailed no more than 30 times. I am the second owner of the boat and the previous owner rarely sailed it at all. Planes easily in winds around 15 knots. I have reached speeds of 15 MPH on a run and 12 MPH off the wind

    Boat has a full cover, (can have the mast up or down), galvanized trailer, new spare tire, new main halyard, new Harken Jib Blocks, anchor, 100ft of line.

    Comes with main, roller furling jib, Asymmetrical spinnaker . All made by North Sails. All lines are color coded, and run through the deck and led aft. All hardware is Harken including traveler. Kick up rudder with custom Harken bag. Lines can control the boom vang, down haul, out haul, traveler, jib roller furler, bow sprit extension and release.

    I single hand the boat in fresh water only; however it is designed to be crewed by two with and ideal crew weight of 375 lbs. I have all paper work including original purchase sheet, and owners manual.from the Atlanta boat show. This boat sold new for $15,000. It is been garage and trailer kept and is in immaculate condition. I will consider all offers, or trades for an older larger daysailer.


  • LOA: 18'
  • LWL: 17'6
  • Retractable Bow Sprit: 5'
  • Draft Board Up: 4"
  • Draft Board Down: 6'
  • Boat weight: 300 lbs
  • Trailer Weight: 150 lbs

    Thanks for everything. I never thought I would find a buyer for my boat seeing how it is so specific; I sold it in two weeks to a family that will use it to teach their kids how to sail. Thanks for everything! Your site rocks!
