I am looking for a good new home for my family's 18.3' (6 meter) Swedish SkiBreeze sailboat. The SkiBreeze was specifically designed to perform decently both as a sailboat and a motorboat. Because of its versatility, size and roomy cockpit, this is an ideal family boat. It has a shallow draft and retractable centerboard. The Hull shape is designed to plane quickly so it can go fast whether under sail or power. There is a full transom in the rear that is designed to support up to a 35hp motor. The rudders tip up when using it as a power boat.

The SkiBreeze boats were designed and built by Gusta (Gus) Erikson at the Scandia Boatyard in Uddevalla, Sweden from 1957 until 1965. This boat is a great daysailer with a cockpit that can comfortably fit a family of 5. With approximately a 6' beam, it can easily be trailed around.

This SkiBreeze belonged to my father and is the boat I learned to sail on. As a youngster, I even water-skied behind it! This boat was purchased new around 1960. It has not been sailed for 8 - 10 years and has been stored on a much newer trailer (on blocks). The sails, boom, rigging and other hardware have been stored in a locker along with a 25hp Evinrude motor.

Overall, the boat is in good condition. The hull and topsides look solid and cleaned up nicely, but could use a fresh gelcoat. The motor is probably 25 years old. I think the trailer was new about 10 - 12 years ago and looks to be in great shape. The aluminum mast is probably 22 -- 24' long. There is a wood and brass steering wheel and motor controls so that the boat can be run from a forward position. Overall, the trailer looks to be in great shape and the wheels turn freely.

I am happy to answer questions if you are seriously interested.

Equipment: - This is boat number 25 and includes the original mainsail and jib; they look to be in good shape. An aftermarket storm jib will also be included.
- Motor has not been run recently but was always carefully conditioned before storing
- I can email a link to some images of a SkiBreeze on the water that sold last year for $3,400
