  2. 1980 Clark San Juan 28

    December 1, 2012 by EVAN

    About this Sailboat:

    Up for sale is a 1980 San Juan 28 in great working condition and good cosmetic condition. I am regrettably forced to put her up for sale due to uncertainty about my job location in the coming months. She has been well maintained and has been in freshwater for her known life. She is a very fast boat and is competitive in racing. She is built in the spirit of IOR, with a wide beam and pinched stern, small battened main and massive foresail. I single-hand her about 50% of the time, she is easy to handle even in high wind and seas. She sails well in light (5 knots) and heavy (>30knots) breezes and takes heavy seas with ease. She points to wind very well. With a 2:1 displacement/ballast ratio, fin keel, and spade rudder, she is very stable, forgiving, and responsive.

  3. 1979 Clark San Juan 7.7

    November 27, 2012 by EVAN

    About this Sailboat:

    Was a racing boat converted into a day-sailor.
    Topside: no boat pox or sponginess to the deck. All chain plates and turnbuckles in great condition. No hull/deck leakage, and a nice sturdy cockpit.
    Cabin: no stains or mildew. No leaks around port lights. Plenty of storage space that is easily accessible. V-berth sleeps two, and under cockpit birth sleeps another person. Bulkheads in great condition with no water damage or rot. Cushions aren’t very nice, we covered them in a couple of sheets and throw pillows and it made a world of difference.
    Standing rigging: deck area around chain plates in great condition and structurally sound. Deck stepped mast, nice and sturdy. Pins and shackles in great shape as well as the blocks. Five winches in total, one is a two speed, the rest are one speed. No rusting on bolts or nuts.
    Outboard: recently added a very sturdy mounting area for the outboard. Outboard is an Evinrude and runs great. It does need a pull cord wound up inside, we always just used an emergency start cord to start the engine though. Tried to wind the pull cord onto motor but just didn’t have enough knowledge of motors to do so. Motor tilts out of water when not in use.
    Price is negotiable. Sails are on, fueled up and ready to sail.

    Equipment on Board:

    Main sail and jib sail. Spare main sail also. All lines in good condition, plus alot of extra line. Solar panel installed on starboard side of the boat. Regulator for the solar panel. Two radios, one handheld. Installed depth finder. Two deep-cycle marine batteries with battery charger. 12 lb anchor with 100 ft rode and 5 ft of chain. Two extra 9 lb anchors. Up to date safety equipment including: 4 flares, BC fire extinguisher, 2 type II life jackets, 2 type IV throw-able devices, 2 air horns, spot/flood light. Eight liter porta-potty. Two 5-gallon water tanks. Portable anchor light.

  8. 1979 San Juan Sloop

    October 19, 2012 by EVAN

    About this Sailboat:

    San Juan 28
    Longshot is hull # 130 built in New Bern, NC. She is an attractive San Juan 28 that has been customized over the years to yield a great mid-sized racer/cruiser. Longshot has been owned by knowledgeable racing sailors who have competed quite well with her 4′ 6″ fin keel and spade rudder; her NCPHRF is 177. The San Juan is known to be easily driven in light air but will really accelerate when the breeze picks up. The tiller has been replaced with pedestal wheel steering. The steering pedestal has been customized with a beautiful teak cockpit table and 4 stainless steel and teak drink holders.

    Equipment on Board:

    The wheel is fitted with Autohelm auto pilot. Longshot has two sets of sails; for racing, she is equipped with a 140% Mylar roller furling genoa and a Mylar mainsail. A spinnaker with spinnaker pole is included as well as a whisker pole. All lines are led aft to be controlled from the cockpit. For cruising, she has a new roller furling working jib and a Dacron mainsail. A new depth sounder was recently installed on the starboard cabin bulk head; a knot meter is on the port bulkhead. There are two heavy duty batteries with isolation switch and an automatic battery charger. There is also a solar panel to keep the batteries topped up. Propulsion is provided by a reliable 15 hp Yanmar diesel engine which is in very good working condition; it looks good and runs great. The propeller is a new Martec folding prop which offers greatly reduced resistance when the engine is turned off. The Martec prop folds automatically so no action is required by captain or crew. Fuel capacity is 40 gallons of diesel fuel. Water capacity is 20 gallons with a pressure water system and a water heater to provide hot water for the shower in the head. A custom made “strapless” bimini has been fabricated for protection from the sun; the bimini has no cumbersome straps to get in the way while moving around the boat. The decks have been newly repainted along with the port light frames and the teak has been newly varnished. Longshot is a well kept example of a San Juan 28 that is ready to go racing and or cruising and is being offered at $22,500.
