This is an 8' sailing dinghy made by the Small Craft Boat company. I've owned this boat since 1993, it was given to me when I was younger by an older gentleman at my marina who bought it and never put it in the water. It sat covered under his porch since new. It has been used most seasons as a tender, with occasional sailing trips up until the fall of 2012. Stored indoors since. This is an awesome one of a kind boat that is very hard to find. Sails, tiller, 34" centerboard are all included. Sail ropes are in decent condition and functional. All teak re-oiled, mahogany varnished, and bottom painted. New England Rope Co. rubrail was installed last year. The floor has two coats of Interlux Interdeck, all this was done 6/17. The only thing missing is the oars and oarlocks which are lost. Other than that she is ready for the water.
There is some damage to the hull and rubrail from hurricane sandy, which is when she was pulled out of the water for the last time (all cosmetic, easy fix). The damaged rubrail is visible in the pictures, and as far as the hull scuffs, I tried to take pictures but they are so light they don't really show up. The hull could use a good cleaning and waxing. The gelcoat is in great shape, the last time I waxed her she shined. I do not have a title, but she does have an HIN so it should be easy to get one. I have never gotten a title as I never planned to put a motor on her (I did try one year with a two hp and it was way too tippy and lopsided). I will provide a bill of sale. Its a solid boat, so it is a bit heavy, but can be moved by one person. There is a blue canvas mooring cover included (not pictured) that has seen better days, but still usable. Please email with any questions.
Again this is an extremely rare boat, I've only seen one other for sale several years back. I would love to keep her, but my kids have grown out of her and are on to bigger boats, and it would be a shame to let her sit unused. If you look at Dyer 8's and similar other sailing dinghies, they are all going for $1500-$2000 and that is just a basic hull. I urge anyone interested to see this boat in person, she is truly unique.
Pickup only, I will not ship for any reason.
