"Sails separate"????

Huh? This is like the nautical equivalent of "batteries not included."

I guess! The seller doesn't say what year the boat is, and offers no information on the sails re: price, condition etc. Weird.

The Cat-22 is a nice fun little boat though! I sailed one for a number of years.

Good Luck!

Most likely someone called and made an offer on the sails in case he didn't sell the boat.
I listed a 22 ft trailer sailor a while ago, and five of the calls I received were from people wanting to buy just the sails or the mast and rigging. I told them that they could and gave them the boats listed price.

Only thing I can see selling separate on a sailboat would be the outboard, and then it should be listed as not included but available for extra cost (as I did because I could have use it on my other boat)

Who knows what the story is. I have seen this with one-design race boats or boats where an owner has two identical boats but only one good set of sails. The price for the boat without sails should reflect the lack of sails, which may not be the case this time.

Used sails in good shape for a Cat 22 can easily run $1000-1500. New sails could easily be twice that much. A Cat 22 of this vintage in really nice shape can usually be bought for something under $3000 and in fact in this economy can be found down around $2K so that suggests a pretty low value for the boat in question.

I just bought an Edel 540 with no sails. The story I got was the previous owner sold their cottage contents and all (sails were in the cottage). Most of the time you can find used sails it seems but this one has been tough. Not sure how long I am going to hold the boat for so I don't want to fork out the $1k-$1.3k for new sails so I may buy something close and have a friend re-cut it for me???

The Cal 22 should be easy to find used sails for though

I bought my boat because it was in amazing shape otherwise

By the way, anyone with a good used sail measuring
Luff 20' and foot no more than 6'6" I would be interested
