    Default New to Boating - Need Advice

    Recently acquired a 1985 Fiberglass Unlimited Chesire catamaran and am trying to sell. It needs a little work, but is in fairly good condition. Not sure what the price points should be. Have listed as $1275, but suspect that may be too high. Got an offer for $525, but that feels low. Could use some wise counsel.

    **if you're not inquiring about the sailboat then disregard

    Chesire catamaran as in the sailboat made by International Fiberlgass? I had an Isotope made by them, fun boats for sure but you may be asking in the wrong place. The Chesire and Isotope are actually made here in North Carolina, and the owners of the company are still very active with the sailing groups around here.

    The first palce I would call is the factory.

    Then try the Carolina Sailing Club at

    or email the fleet captain at
    [email protected]

    They are fun to fly a hull! I sold my Isotope last year (which is a more popular boat, as the class still races) for 1200, and that was with a fully rebuilt trailer, and lots of new rigging

    lol it would just sink. They are a riot though, the sensation of speed and force on a sailboat is actually quite intense. I've been in some pretty fast boats and still the most scared I've ever been on a boat was on a 38' sailboat in Lake St. Clair during an overnight race, a storm with 40 knot winds blew in out of nowhere, totally wild ride for about an hour .
