Need help identifying a boat

I've got a 14.5 ft daysailor made by Wesco Marine. I am told that it is a "super satellite" model but I can't seem to find anything written about it.

Has anyone ever heard of such a boat, and if so, where can I get info on it. Any help would be appreciated.

Actually built by Coronado yachts. You might try searching under that or contacting Wesco via e-mail as they are still in business.

Your boat was built in 1964 and was designed by Frank Butler. He founded Coronado sailboats, Wesco, and Catalina. It's tough finding much info on the Super Satellite. All I found was that Frank sold out of Wesco and kept the rights to some of the small boats. I couldn't find any info on the boat itself.
Hope this helps.

Re: Need help identifying a boat

I have images of a 1965 Super Satellite yearbook that has all the details on the 14' boat. The early boats (sail number up to 300) were made by McCune in Burbank, CA and the later boats were built by Wesco Marine later known as Cornado. If you would like the information. My email is

At gmail.com

(you can put the email address together).

It will take three emails as there is 25mb of PDFs.

I have had my Super Satellite since 1971 and am in the process of restoring it for the sailing season next year.
