1978 Skipper 17

  • LOA 17ft.
  • Beam 6ft.5in
  • Draft (c/plate up) 9in Draft (c/plate down) 3ft.9in
  • Weight 780 lbs.
  • Sails are good condition having been reconditioned this last winter by Out Island sails. The batten pockets were reinforced with new elastic and sail lugs were added. Comes with one main and one jib.
  • Boom is set up for roller reefing.
  • Jib is hank on.
  • I have sailed in gusts up to 25 mph and sails held up very well.
  • Boat is self righting.
  • The swing keel has a new rope installed this year.
  • All lines, sheets and halyards are in good condition.
  • Boat is ready to sail and was just sailed last weekend.
  • When you come to look at it we can put it in the water and sail it before you decide to buy.
  • This boat is kept on the hard when not sailed so the bottom stays very clean.
  • Gel coat is over all in good condition.
  • very large cockpit that is self bailing.
  • Has a small cuddy upfront with a floor for lots of storage. I am 5 ft 8 and can lay out in the cuddy, but it is not designed as a berth.
  • Rear compartment under the orange cover also provides excellent storage.
  • Has a forward hatch added by me for ventilation, but we have mainly used it to tuck the jib away.
  • built in ladder on the stern with flip up steps.
  • folding motor mount.
  • Two tillers
  • This is a very stable lightweight boat.

    This boat is very easy to rig. I can rig it by myself in about 20 minutes. All the rigging is in very good condition with two side stays and one forestay.

    3 hp Johnson

    I regularly tow it with my Volvo with no problems. Trailer is in good condition with forward cradle for the mast. Rear cradle is homemade, but works very well and fits in the rudder bracket when towing.

    Just had a couple from Kansas come and go for a test sail on the little skipper. The new owners left with their new sailboat for the asking price. Thanks, Fred
