Description: This sailboat, the Sagittarius, is an authentic tech dingy from the MIT sailing fleet of 1953. The boat is the first fiberglass boat ever made and is a collector's item. It has a stepped rather than a stayed wooden mast and comes complete with 2 suits of sails and a trailer for transport. This boat is painted MIT's colors: cardinal and gray and should be of special interest to any MIT grads from the 50's and 60's, but is a nice diversion for anyone who would like to sail on inland waters or near the shore.
This boat is heavily made and very sturdy. It is not a speedster but is very stable and sails well in light air. This boat was stored indoors, unused for over 30 years in Harvard, MA and was enjoyed on Great Herring Pond, Cedarville this past summer. It is in excellent condition and ready for a new owner! Feel free to email with inquiries. The sail in the photo is the smaller sail for heavier winds.

Equipment: comes with trailer that has been updated with 2 new wheels.
