An exciting opportunity to purchase a Laser dart 16 sailing catamaran. Purchased new in 2005 by Cumbrae these “cats” provide a great sense fun, exhilaration and speed while also providing a stable platform compared with many other types of dinghy. The boat comes with a set of launching trolley wheels. and the sails have been replaced since we originally purchased the boats in 2005. They are being sold on an “as seen basis”.
If you are interested and / or if you wish to come and have a look or test sail then please contact us on 01475 530 757.
We have three Dart 16s for sale which could make them an attractive “bulk” purchase for a club.
Cost each is £1,400 (this includes VAT).
