1973 Venture 17

  • The boat is in great condition for its age with no soft spots, blistering or major spidering. Includes everything needed to sail it off the trailer (you might need some extras to be fully CG legal). Great boat for day sailing or for short overnights.
  • Hate to see it go but I am selling this boat because I recently upsized.

    Boat Features:

  • Swing keel
  • Main and Jib - Both in great condition. No holes, rips or repairs. (main needs new battens)
  • All lines run aft
  • Headsail downhaul
  • Topping lift
  • Standing rigging in great condition
  • Standing rigging includes forestay with a quick release (lever type and quick pin) for easy rigging
  • New halyards, topping lift, headsail downhaul
  • Brand new mainsheet cam cleat
  • Cabin will sleep 2 (although MacGregor says 4)
  • Cabin has original cushions, 3 of which are in great condition, 1 needs repair
  • Includes no-see-um screens for companionway and ports
  • Structurally completely sound, no leaks or soft spots


  • Factory trailer with brand new tires (June 2006) and new lights/wiring
  • 2004 Suzuki 6HP four stroke long shaft
  • Motor caddy - basically a hand cart rigged to hold a motor
  • 6 Gallon fuel tank
  • 2 Life Vests
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Boat is equipped with running lights that plug into a jump battery but the lights will need bulbs and possibly repair as they are not currently working
  • Email me with questions or to set up a time to see the boat. I am pretty firm on the price as so much of the gear on this boat is less than a year old.

    Thanks so much for listing the boat! It is sold!!
    Thanks again for your awesome service!
    Alexandria, Virginia
