NACRA 5.5SL $1000  Bottom

  • Someone should jump on this

  • Funny, I noticed the same add this morning, boat seems like a decent deal, that trailer is garbage, I wouldn't trust it to haul trash to the dump let alone a boat....
  • Nice looking boat but ad says it needs sails, and yeah, that trailer is pretty rough to say the least.

  • Negotiating points.... not negatives!!!!!
  • I did a bit a reading on these boats. What did you see in the photos making it a SL vs a square?

  • Squares are uni-rig with 11 ft. beams. Clearly not pictured. The SL is sloop rig. You can see the jib blocks and the jib bow foil, which was the design for the 5.5SL.

    The craigslist poster improperly provided a link to the square.

  • i think the trailer has character

    put a new axle/hubs on it and it's like brand new.

    bonus - it would be the last one stolen off the beach!

  • With the bow foil that is a 5.5 SL. Really like the fact that they have an 8.5 foot beam. I would like to see that 18 foot boat balanced on the trailer fenders. Be better off towing it home on the beach wheels.
