Owner Is Growing Old, Must Sell - Vintage Paceship Mouette (Seagull)

This is no O'Day. If you're looking for a modern mass production sail boat, this is not for you. They don't make them like this any more! This is a sexy19.5 foot racing class trailer Paceship with decades more life in her. The following is taken from the Mouette brochure of the original parent company of Paceship Yachts Ltd of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia:

"Designed by George W. McVay, the Paceship Mouette (Seagull) is a 19'6" high performance centerboard daysailer, which has a large cockpit suitable for 4-6 people. The Mouette is a class boat, which offers the beginner as well as the expert the challenge and fun of daysailing and racing. She is of fiberglass construction including hull, deck and cockpit liner, which gives her a self-bailing cockpit and ease of maintenance found only in fiberglass construction. The beginner will find the Mouette a wide, safe and sea kindly craft. She has positive foam flotation, which is adequate to support the hull with reserve buoyancy. Speed in addition to grace is one of the Mouette's characteristics and she's becoming well known as a boat to beat in her size range. Construction is of multi-laminate fiberglass with polyester resins used throughout. She is built from a one piece mold by hand lay-up techniques. The Mouette is known for its high quality finish and trouble-free maintenance."

Loaded with Extras and Improvements (cash cost noted)

We have owned this boat going on eight years and invested thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours of sweat equity to produce, not just a bundle of beauty and sailing joy, but a complete system for solo day sailing as well as extended overnight sailing trips. Extras include:

- Trailer refurbished with new roller bed, new suspension, axle, rims & tires ($700 ).

- Custom-made mast hinge of thick stainless steel enables one man mast raising and rigging ($200). I am a 62 year old weakling and can still trailer, rig and sail the boat solo.

- Sturdy custom-made mast crutch with roller (just built this May)

- State of the art custom made kickup Unifoil Rudder by RudderCraft with laminated mahogany/ash tiller and telescoping extension ($550) (

- Brand new jib by Mack Sails ($500); original mainsail has minor repairs in good condition.

- Improved side stay placement to maintain mainsail air foil and custom rear stay added for stability in the heaviest weather ($100).

- Boom tent sets up in minutes, protects from rain, wind and sun. This ingenious custom boom tent design is hand made with durable Sunbrella marine fabric and sets up / takes down in minutes. The tent blocks wind at the bow or opens up to allow the breeze thru and packs away taking little space, enabling overnight moorings or afternoon siesta time naps for two! ($300).

- 2 durable hard foam sections for cockpit deck mattresses roll up and stow neatly away in cubby space; same material also used as removable cockpit seating cushions ($100).

- 100 yards of premium quality anchor rope with depth markings enable you to anchor safely in up to 60 feet of water in any weather; also has two anchors, one heavy, one light ($150).

- Reinforced fiberglass at common stress points around retractable centerboard housing and cubby roof ($100).

- Indispensable depth finder mounted in-transom w/ two 12 volt batteries and charger ($100).

- Flotation jackets, assorted rigging tools, pins, duplicate parts, lanterns, and more minutiae than I can mention ($100). All manner of stainless steel screws, bolts and assorted hardware, motor and gear oil, various parts and potentially useful itms all thrown in for free. Could fill the boat deck all that stuff

- No charge for hundreds of man-hours labor and Tender Loving Care, all of that comes as a bonus!

She goes to the best offer over $4000 base.

Please note: The 2004 5hp outboard pictured in the boat photos is no longer available and the price has been marked down $1000 accordingly. However, for an additional $1530 (total package $5530) I can have a brand new 2015 6hp Tohatsu "SailPro" outboard ready for you with the boat (

Absent any motor, I can't take you out sailing on her, but can taker her to a nearby lake ramp and set her up on the water for you to check out. Think about opting for the new motor included! You're gonna need one with a 25" shaft.
