Re: Small Keelboat for Solo sailing

As others have said most any boat this size, or even larger can be set up for single hand sailing. Since you specified a size range I'll throw out the cape dory typhoon - my favorite 18 footer (but I'm always drawn to the classic full keelers).

Compac 19, not fast but some of the most fun I have had with my clothes on.

Re: Small Keelboat for Solo sailing

My 2 cents... You want a Ranger 23, and if you live down South, a tall-rig at that. They are wonderful. They can sleep 4 and you can crew with 5 if you are racing. A wonderful wonderful boat.

Don't forget Precision 18 or P21. Both would fit the easy trailering requirement. They are no-nonsense Jim Taylor designs still in production, come with decent hardware and sail well.
