Description: The Carolina Rosio is a super fast Gunter-rigged Sharpie that planes readily. She has won two classic boat regattas by huge margins and also is perfect for an sunset sail with a brew in hand.

She is a veteran of numerous overnight camping trips in the Florida Keys and North Florida that have taken her out of sight of land in the Florida Bay, surfing down the swell off of Miami at 12 kts, and ghosting along in inches of water in a light breeze, steering by sails alone.

She is a tough boat, and I have modified her to handle difficult conditions. She handles winds of up to 20 kts with grace. I have sailed her on a run in gusts up to 35 kts without damage (caught in a squall).

She is perfect for someone young with a taste for adventure or anyone with an appreciation for a beautiful craft. She can carry two adults.

I built the boat in 2009, and am selling now to upgrade to a larger boat.

$2500 or reasonable offer
