These size boats require a big car to tow however they make for a great rig to keep stored at the local boat house / boat club saving the costs associated with owning a large tow vehicle. This quality make is an affordable entry level rig to learn to sail on or take the family out for a weekend of sailing enjoyment. As with most TS’s they are older mix of craft, but like this one, you can still find a well maintained and loved one.
One great feature is that they have a relatively flat bottom which helps if you want to beach them or the tide drops out from under you that the boats don’t list over too much. Another feature is that the pop top allows great head room for tall folk and opens up the cabin to allow more ventilation and light inside and best of all the boat can be sailed whilst the pop top is up. If the wind drops out, the boat can be powered by the Tohatsu 8Hp long shaft motor. This has a 25l fuel tank offering plenty of range if needed and the 8Hp will generate a good turn of speed.
Most of the sailing has been with a main and the genoa and all are in workable condition. The keel is electrically motorised via a cable for ease of pressing a button. The cabin as pictured is comfortable and well laid out with the creature comforts one wants for an overnighter. The galley is well equipped with lighting, a stove, sink with approx. 60l fresh water storage aboard and plenty of storage is offered for the rations and crockery.

If you’re looking for a boat that you can store at home and easily get in and out of the water, our range of reasonably priced used trailer yachts might be just the ticket.
