Question buying a sailboat

I want to buy a sailboat 19 to 21 foot, weekender, sleep 2 or 3, easily trailored, and sailed by one. Any suggestions.

Such a boat (sleeps 2-3) doesn't exist below 22'. Try a Catalina 22 or 25.

Hey Vee its a 1975 Chrysler C-22 and its great for weekend sailing. It is set up to sleep as many as 5 but would feel a little crowded. It sat on the hard for more then 15 yrs before I got ahold of it so its in real nice shape and ready to sail. It has alot of extras for easy solo sailing plus alot of extra teak work. Cabin Lights have been converted to LED's , the sails were just servised and in very good shape. the trailer was redone last year with all new parts.

The only reason we are sailing it is due to us getting the larger Chrysler C-26 and I would hate to see this set again un-used.

Email me at Kafertoys at Aol.com for pictures and details

They actually do have some, what about one of these...

Not sure how good they are but I know they been around for a very long time and they can do what you are asking. I was looking at these several years ago because I wanted something similar but I got an Oday 22. You can find one used somewhere I bet for a good deal. Maybe someone here who owns one or knows more can comment.

ODay Mariner fits your specs. As noted, any cruising on a boat this size is really camping on the water. Moving up in size will increase space below but complicate trailoring.

I have a 2001 Catalina 22 MK II in excellent condition for sale. I believe this might fit your needs, especially if you are looking for a relatively new boat.
Go to the resources button at top of the page, and click on the boat listings, then search for sailboats, Catalina Yachts, 22 ft in length. There are a number of boats listed, including mine. Also, I have lots of photos on Photobucket.com.....search for user: pboatppp and click on C22 MK II Viewing Detail. My boat is in Washington, NC.
