2004 Precision 185
centerboard model - IN GREAT CONDITION!
Sailing World Magazine 2003 Boat of the Year - Best Value
Sailed only a few times - fresh water only. Cared for very well. You've got to see this boat!
Fun, fast day sailer! Easy to rig and trailer.
Main and roller furling jib in great condition.
Trailer in excellent condition.
The cockpit is very roomy and well laid out with sail controls well placed and good quality. The roller furling jib works great. The centerboard is easy to lower and raise, and it's a kick up design in case you run aground.
The PRECISION 185 will make her mark by using true state-of-the-art design and construction technology to combine vastly improved ergonomics and higher performance with low weight, low maintenance, and low cost. Comfortable seating, computer-shaped hull and fins, and precise tooling will all contribute to the appeal of this 'new century' competitor.
The PRECISION 185 features a large, self-draining cockpit, a secure spot for a portable ice chest, practical under-deck storage, straightforward rigging, and high quality hardware. Her swim platform at the transom is an unusual feature usually reserved for large offshore cruisers. In addition to contributing to the fun by getting swimmers back aboard more easily and allowing youngsters to trail their toes in water, this 'back porch' can contribute to safety by facilitating boarding from a dinghy, and recovering from an accidental 'man overboard' incident more easily and quickly.
This boat will give you the kind of acceleration and speed that will turn heads and quicken the pulse when desired. She will offer speed, stability and control over a wide range of conditions that will be the envy of both her classic and contemporary competitors. She will sail beautifully under main alone when shorthanded or in heavy weather. Her broad deck beam and high-volume side decks will help keep her crew dry, and maximize her resistance to capsize.
