1978 Vagabond 14

  • Boat and trailer are both in good condition and ready to sail today. No cracks or leaks. Fast, roomy, comfortable and stable - an ideal daysailer that is great for families. The boat is light (265 lbs.) and easy to tow by almost any vehicle. Can easily be rigged and sailed by one person yet will comfortably accommodate 4 adults. It is a great beach boat and can be sailed right up to shore due to the kick-up rudder and flat bottom.

    Rigging time is 15-20 minutes. The boat is fast and very stable. Easy to handle and fun for both beginners and expert sailors. Easily righted if it capsizes. It has a self-bailing cockpit. Can be stored in a garage. Good resale value.

    I have clear and valid titles for both the sailboat and trailer.
