This is a classic "Elver" design sprit-rigged sailboat. See the original design by googling SRedmond Elver (Ebay no longer permits links in the listing).  The hull is cold-molded mahogany epoxy, and is tougher than fiberglass. It is in perfect shape, and is stored indoors.  The outside is white; the inside is finished bright (see pictures).  There is a well for an outboard, although no outboard is included.  It will need a long shaft.   It was built in about 1985.  This is a center-board boat. Board-up draft is about 12 inches, so you can go up into creeks and close to/pull up onto the beach.  This boat is very trailerable behind even small cars.  It does not have heavy ballast, and weighs about 900 pounds empty.   The boat is in good shape; on the other hand,  the trailer will need lights, new tires, and perhaps a new tongue piece if you plan to tow it a long way to get home.  I am selling this with a very low reserve, and well below what I paid for the boat, because I am not working right now, and need to pay bills.  To build a boat of this quality would cost about 15 to 20 times my reserve.  The boat has a Minnesota title.  The trailer has a Minnesota registration; small trailers are not titled in Minnesota, though I can send you the old Florida title.   The boat is located in North Fort Myers, Florida, although I am in Minnesota.

Additional notes: 

The main mast and sails were with the boat when last I checked.  However, please understand that the boat is in storage about 1900 miles from where I live, so I can not guarantee that these loose items are still there.  It is a storage facility, and although they watch, as we all know, things do come up missing from time to time from storage, so I don't like to guarantee things I am not looking at at this very minute. My reserve is $1000 -- it would cost you about 15 times that amount to have this boat built from scratch, so whoever buys this boat will be getting a real bargain no matter what.  New sails are available at a reasonable cost from Sailritesails.com. 

Another note:  the mizzen mast on the original Redmond plans was NOT built -- this boat does not have a mizzen.  If you want a mizzen -- and it was always only a small balancing sail on this design -- again, this is easy and not expensive to add to the boat.
