Restored Vintage Boat. 1968 Gibbs Phoenix 18' Catamaran with trailer.

If you dream of sailing the ocean, this sailboat will train you so you can realize your dream.

Fiber glass is strong and in excellent condition.

Built by Gibbs Boat Works of Lasalle Michigan in 1968.

Living the dream even then Naval Architect, JR Rod MacAlpine Downie.

The original teak wood rudders for the boat are part of the sale.

However, EPO rudders have been installed for better handling performance.

Also, this provides you with a deeper understanding of how a sailboat can respond to weather and tide... and best of YOU T6 aluminum plate installed at transoms for a nonflexable and durable rudder connection.

To add to the joy and ease of your experience, there is a new light weight 29.5' mast, new standing rigging, Snuffer spinnaker and a raised trampoline.

To optimize your sailing lesson the bulkheads are installed at front and rear cross bars.

Further, hull reinforcements are added to strengthen hulls and eliminate hull twist.

I found this to be particularly useful in rough seas. 4 Custom built hull-cradles ease the burden of trailering on the hulls.

Dreams can be practical too, after all.

Forestay cross bar and end sockets are reinforced for long term strength and durability.

After all, what is a dream worth if you can't optimize the wonder New gelcoat on hulls and Dupont Imron on top deck.

All blocks are Harken, Main sheet is 7 to 1.

This boat is complete with all equipment needed and ready to begin your dream experiences and sail.

The title is clear for the boat and trailer with up to date tags.

The boat and trailer weigh in at 1005 lbs. 425 lbs for the boat and 580 lbs for the trailer.

Therefore, this boat and trailer could even be towed by an economy vehicle No Superman needed here to trailer this dream sailboat.

Total monetary investment for restoration 17,950.00, and worth every penny if you know the value of a dream I am the second owner and purchased it to answer the call of my own dream.

I have had the joy of sailing this boat since 1985.

Some of the most exhilarating rides have been at places like San Juan Islands, Columbia River, Willamette River, Lake Washington, Big Bear Lake, Lake Parris, Mission Bay, and San Diego Harbor.
