Default The Unknown Sailboat

Does anyone have any idea what the name of this boat is? I got it from my dad who no longer has need of it. It's 39" long with a wood mast and boom, the main sail is missing. Any idea what it's worth? Thanks, Aaron

Hi Aaron.

Does your boat appear to be a "from scratch" of kit built model?
The photo suggests that it is maybe 10-20 years old. However, the fin on the keel bulb would make one think it was motivated by the Aussie's a couple of America's Cup races ago.
I've never been around wooden sailboats so I cant help you with value.
Ever thought about keeping it and fixing it up with new rigging?
