sailingdog Corsair F24, and the Farrier Eagle are also good candidates, if you're into multihulls. However, the Eagle was primarily produced as a daysailer with a very small cuddy cabin and no v-berth.

pluscard How about a J/22... has a deck stepped mast, lightweight, but fast on the water, and very roomy cockpit.

SailinJay There's always the Catalina 22. Not a centerboarder, but you can get one with a swing keel. A little bigger than your 19-footer and they weigh in around 2,500 pounds. Has a v-berth as well as berths in main cabin. Can take an outboard anywhere from 5 to 10 HP, although it should be a long shaft.

Thank You All For Your Advice

I will take suggestions and work from there

sailingdog IIRC there was a version of the Drascombe Lugger that had a small cuddy cabin with v-berth...

owlmtn A friend of mine has a mariner. It's a nice little boat, sails well and launches reasonably well, although his trailer doesn't seem to fit well and sometimes it's a pain to get it centered. you can find these boats pretty cheap. usually well under 2K and in the fall under 1K. I think it would be a good introduction to sailing at a reasonable price. Jim L

Looking for small sailboat

I am looking for a small sailboat that is light and easy to pull in and out of the water with a trailer and truck. (I think a centerboard would be appropriate and not a fixed keel). and yet has a V-berth. Outboard engine is preferred. I have been looking at a 19' O'day Mariner and it seems about the right size. Are there any other kinds of boats that I should be considering. Does Cal make a boat that is similar to the O'day. Light day-sailer, yet has a v-berth, and can take an outboard motor.
Thanks so much for any knowledge.
