Dave's Pocketship is for Sale

I am leaving this post up but as of last week the status of "So True" is sale pending.


Sale Details

"So True" is just over 3 years old but is basically brand new. She has only been on the water for perhaps half a dozen short sails. The boat has always been stored summer and winter in her own portable garage and therefore has had very little exposure to the elements.  The customized trailer has less than 150 kilometres on it and the 2.5 HP Suzuki four stroke outboard has probably 5 running hours and is not even done the 10 hour break in period.

Technically, "So True" is a gaff-rigged sloop with more than 300 pounds of lead ballast in the hull and shallow keel which makes her extremely stable for a 15 foot sailboat. She also has a self-furling jib and all control lines and halyards can be operated from the roomy cockpit. More details are available at the Pocketship website.

I am asking $12, 499 for the boat, trailer, motor and accessories like life jackets, paddles, first aid kit, bumpers etc. This basically would be recouping the cost of materials as Pocketships in other locales have had marine surveys done putting the value at $25,000.

Any interested potential buyers can leave a comment with any questions or email me at dcurtis100 at
