1978 Douglas and McLeod Thistle

  • This 17' Thistle is in excellent condition for its age.
  • The hull is black with red waterline stripes and is glossy.
  • It comes with two sets of sails, one in good condition for club racing.
  • A spinnaker is also included, but it has a couple nickel-size holes.
  • The thistle also comes with a black anodized aluminum racing boom and mast, which are in great condition.
  • All the teak wood has recently been planed down and re-oiled.
  • The thwart teak was replaced with a stronger white ash wood and all cleats were reinstalled to suit both cruising and racing needs.
  • An aluminum trailer included and all steel bolts have been replaced with stainless steel to prevent rusting.
  • It was overhauled last year with new wiring, tires, and wheels.
  • Also included is a new tiller extension.
  • If you are looking for a solid racing boat in great shape, don't pass this up.

    Thank you very much for the listing! I sold my Thistle today! Now to look for another boat……maybe a cabin boat?
