About this Sailboat:
DS 22 Sailboat for sale with trailer. Main, Genoa (furling), Spinnaker (with dousing sock), Spinnaker pole, main sail cover, danforth chain & rode, pop-top with canvas, sink, alcohol stove, head with deck pump-out, VHF, depth sounder, 9.9 Evenrude, new battery, swing keel, and numerous other miscellaneous boating items. The trailer has an extending tongue – a nice touch for getting the boat deeper into the water while keeping your vehicle out of the water.
This is a great family boat. I’ve been sailing on it for 5 summers now with my kids, and it’s been fantastic. Reason for selling – moving.
I had the UV cover on the furling Genoa professionally redone last year, and replaced one of the stays. I ground all the paint off the trailer last year, repainted, and put on all new lights. The battery was also new last year, and I removed all the old antifouling and put on fresh antifouling at the beginning of the 2010 season. The wheel bearings and tires on the trailer were put on new when I bought it in 2007, and any damage/rust professionally repaired in 2011. The boat has had it’s swing keel professionally faired and epoxied last summer, and a new companionway was constructed last year.
This boat has been well kept, both by myself and the previous owner. The upholstery is in great shape (even though it’s from the 80’s) and the sails, halyards, sheets, ect. still have lots of life left in them. This boat will keep you out on the water for the entire season, for many seasons to come.
