This boat was delivered in October 2009 and sailed for the first time the following spring. Really only used in 2013, and 2014. It’s last regatta was the Championship of Championships at Edgewater in 2014.
Since 2015 it was sailed at the Hoover Sailing Club twice or so each season. Always stored indoors with a tarp over the Thistle cover.
The price might seem to be more than many will agree to, however this boat is as close to new as any on the market. It is being sold with a lengthy list of add ons and spares which alone total over $5,000 in added value.
If I were to identify one shortcoming that would be that it could be equipped with a new spinnaker. The two that come with it are perfectly serviceable, however.
I have many photos to share and I am willing to answer questions, preferably via e-mail to the address at the Header.
The boat is available for inspection at Hoover Sailing Club until late October.
