Description: 1982 Hobie 18 with Magnum wings and many parts replaced recently!

Built like a tank like all early 80s H18s! Though the hulls have beaching wear, they're still thick and strong. Zero evidence of soft spots where they normally form.

The previous owner put a lot of money into this boat about a year and a half ago to update it:
-Trampolines replaced
-Wings added with new wing tramps (one wing weld appears to have been repaired)
-All running rigging replaced, including jib sheet and wire but not including blocks
-Some standing rigging replaced, such as forestay and shrouds. Trapeze wires and diamond wire were not replaced by him, but both are in good condition except for the trap T-handles, some of which are broken.
-Rudders and dagger boards sanded and faired
-Aft deck hatches added to facilitate transom repair (owner before him had caused transom cracking from beaching; his repairs are excellent)
-Forward deck hatches replaced with modern screw-in units

Sails are older but in excellent condition: no tears or ripped seams, battens present and unbroken. If I was keeping the boat I would have a few of the jib leech reinforcement seams re-sewn as they are beginning to un-thread. Furler is older but functional. Tiller is in good condition and functions correctly. Dagger trunks are undamaged. Jib and main blocks are older but in good condition and functional. Standard H18 downhaul. Outhaul cleat was replaced and line is present but not currently threaded. Mast rotator present and functional but not currently rigged. Hulls have very minor dings and scratches as you'd expect; if I was keeping the boat I'd do some easy repairs to shore those up. Trailer is in good condition with rollers replaced with padded bunks and wheels tires replaced less than 1yr ago. Hard plastic beach wheels included (pictured). NC title is in-hand and clean.

I'm happy to answer any questions you may have! I'm only selling because I found my dream Nacra 570. I know the price is higher than some H18s on the market, but this boat really has been brought back to life and is ready to sail. Open to reasonable offers.
