My 19' Sailboat is for sale...

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
It's a Blackwatch 19' Cutter (19' on deck, 22' overall length with bow-sprit). Very traditional design, VERY well built. Sleeps two, porta potty, alcohol stove, sink. Powered by a 9HP Merc outboard serviced this year. All sails included. The boat is in very good condition. A terrific weekender. It is on a mooring at Pleasant Street Wharf in Wickford and I think the boat could remain there if sold this year. It is listed with a local broker. The price is VERY negotiable as my sailing days are over.



Draws 24" so she can be run right up to the beach. She'll handle rough weather and high winds. Three small sails all totally controlled from the cockpit. This is a very easy boat to sail single-handed. It is very rugged and extremely seaworthy. I'm just not using it. I've owned it for 5 years and before that I had a 29' sloop. Almost always single-handed both boats. Just gotten a bit too old and am not using her so I'm hoping to send this great little boat to a good owner who will use her.



It's a design based on a Bristol Channel Cutter / Packet. It has a long squared off keel which allows it to sit upright in the mud/sand on a tide drop. The hull shape with the plum stem (bow) is very much like the Marshall cat hull except for the keel design. It is also beamy like a cat. The rig is a cutter rig instead of a gaff rig like a cat. The advantage is that there are two small fore sails, the roller furling jib and the smaller stay sail. Both can be completely controlled from the cockpit. The main is also not huge. I would have bought a cat boat, but I sailed single-handed and the huge sail on a cat requires a lot of work when the wind speed goes up. On this rig, the main has two reef points (jiffy reefing) and the two small sails up front, so the amount of sail that you have out is infinitely adjustable from the cockpit and it makes for a great single-hander. The way it's built, the hull construction, the bronze fittings and ports and the mahogany hatches and rails are very similar to the Marshall. It's just easier to sail in a blow when you're alone. I have talked with the builder and designer and an owner from the North West and these boats can handle serious weather.... 40 to 50 knots and not be overwhelmed. Not comfortable, but safe... if you stay aboard.



This was advertised on another site, but I posted a no longer available and moved the ad here in case some of the New England SOL users might want the info. http://www.stripersonline.com/surfta...d=11901217 83



Just wanted to note that one of the members of this site saw this listed on the previous site. he is on BI until the end of the week and I committed to giving him first opportunity subject to a phone conversation to answer his questions. There is no sale, but I did say I would communicate with him as soon as he returns.

ooops.



I am asking $4250.00. It is listed with a local broker at about $2000 more because that's what he estimated a fair price at.

However, I want this gone to a good home so if you or anyone is interested, contact me with any questions and don't be shy... if ya get my drift.

Raw,
She's beautiful!!
Is she a shoal draft keel or a swing keel/centerboard design?
And, would you ever consider work on your house or any other carpentry woodworking as a swap? I work first till you are satisfied she's paid off and then I sail her home?

There is no swing keel or center board. The keel is cut away for about the first 1/4 of the hull then drops and extends to the stern and is continued through the stern mounted rudder. Before I bought the boat I contacted an owner in Vancouver and was also put in touch with the designer in texas. Both confirmed that the lack of depth to the keel was made up by the width and squared off configuration and both had sailed in winds over 40 knots... actually in the case of the builder, well above 40. I've been out in 30-35.



At this point, cash is what I want. I don't have any work need on the house, but thanks.

No trailer...

Displacement is 2500 lbs I believe. I can check later. For anyone wishing to trailer it. Any dual axle trailer capable of handling the size and weight could probably be used because of the shallow keel.

No live well or fighting chair. Besides you don't need one because boat fish don't count.

The boat is on the mooring and the cushions are at my house. These photos are from the sales brochure. They should give a good idea of the layout. The cushions are all in excellent condition because the boat was mainly used as a day sailer. I should mention that this boat was put into inside his garage storage for almost 13 years of its life... I mean all year for 13 years it went unlaunched and unused. I can fill an seriously interested person in on the details and reason.
