Sunfish sailboats

Listed June 3, 2022 

The club has several (6 total) Sunfish sailboats that we are selling. The basic boats (5 of them) are complete having spars, sail, rudder and dagger board. Some may need more work but they all will float and sail. They are sold as is for $250. They don’t have a trailer but they are titled. To transport them it’s probably best put it on the car roof or in the bed of a truck or buy a small trailer like the ones sold at harbor freight or northern tool. 


Then there is one with a titled trailer, a nice sail and a new rudder and dagger board that is $1000.
