Wanted: 16 - 20ft'er max spend $3500 with trailer

Recommended Posts

Hi all, me and my brother are itching to get onto the water in a boat that can take two adults and doesn't mind some rough conditions. We dont plan to race it at the moment, so hull condition is more important than new sails. Have raced hobie 16's in the past and are looking for something similar, or larger. Just missed a nacra 5.8 in auction and was gutted, we dont have the biggest budget, but please let me know if anything comes up. We are located in Melbourne, and are happy to drive a couple of hundred k's, or freight with enough detailed photos

Keep saving and keep looking until u get a 5.8 - they are a far superior boat for all the right reasons - it must have a bridle foil with matching jib but the hull number doesn't matter - beyond 1550 they are a bit lighter but I have crewed and have beaten boats beyond 1650 with an older boat (good sails).
