    Unfortunately time to sell my much loved Sailfish 18, as a house move (project) requires my attention.

    She is a true trailer sailer, and will launch without getting the back of the car wet. Not like many so called 'trailers' that need a huge 4x4 to tow and a crane to launch.
    (Apparently could be towed behind a '70s Mini !)

    Sail number 225, my sailfish was built by Maxim Marine (Southampton) around 1973.

    She is in good all round condition for the year, having been extensively given a new lease of life before I purchased her 4 years ago. (Along with new cushions throughout).

    The ultimate 'Creek Crawler' the Sailfish is easy to rig and launch single handed. (Aided by trail/launch pintle attachment - see photos ).
    She draws less than a foot with the keel up, and has spent many a night pulled up outside the pub, providing a ready B&B at closing time!

    Easy to trail, I spent a week one summer with my lad exploring the Pembroke area creeks and bays. She has also been great around the solent or in the confines of Chichester harbour if the wind picks up excessively.

    She comes complete and ready to go. Not only a fully braked trailer (alone worth nearly a thousand pounds) but a little used Tohatsu 3.5hp 2-Stroke outboard, and all the kit and safety gear so that she can be launched and cruised immediately.

    Here's the details and full inventory:

    Lifting Keel (modified - see sailfish association details)
    Fractional sloop, LOA: 18.5' / 5.64m. Beam: 7.17' / 2.19m
    Draft Max: 3.00' /0.91m. Min: 1.00 /0.30m
    Displacement: 1000 lbs / 454kgs.

    Roller trailer, braked and hubs recently serviced.

    New mainsail in 2014, slab or roller reeling.
    Roller genoa, Cruising chute. (Never used).

    Tohatsu 3.5hp 2-Stroke, in excellent condition. Very little use. Always maintained and winterised.

    5Kg Bruce Anchor. 6.5m chain, 25m warp. Trip bouy.
    Pick kedge anchor, warps + stretchy warp. (Allows boat to be 'held off' in deeper water).
    Sail ties and bungees.
    New pack of 4 fenders + 3 assorted used ones.
    3 Life vests. (2xXL, 1M)
    Fire extinguisher.
    2 Throw lines.
    Extensive selection of flares. (Mostly out of date but carefully kept).
    Assorted kit: Torch, binoculars, Radio (music) Cabin Lamp, Whistle, Dustpan, Survival bags (2), Safety harness. Mask, beer holder.

    Boom cover. (Not fitted).
    Tool kit, various tools, fishing tackle and tackle box. Sponge and brush.
    Keel and roller reefing handles.
    2 Cockpit cushions/ floatation throw cushions.
    2x 10litre water containers. (One with tap).
    Portable single ring gas cooker with spare gas refills.
    Saucepans, frying pan and kettle.
    Cutlery, Bowls and mugs for 3. Chopping board, colander, knives etc.

    Finally, there is a full length cover and mast crutch for winter storage.
    Very active Sailfish Association with meetings, events and forum.

    Priced to sell. Ready to sail away. Any inspection welcome near Emsworth.
