Yearning to have a sail, don't want to make a huge investment? Looking for something that is easy to rig, simple to tow and maintain? Well... We might just have landed the right package for you with this well-loved Careel 18 trailer sailer. The Careel's were made by David Rose Yachts in Sydney whom also made the bigger model known as the Careel 22. Our Trailer Sailer library has a quite a bit of information on these wonderful boats if you would know more about them at: https://www. Johncrawfordmarine. Com. Au/cms/index. Php/trailer-sailer
This lovely example has been held in the family and is now offered to the next fortunate sailing enthusiast to get out on the water with the family, friends or grandchildren and enjoy. The rig is very easy to stand, the boom has the main sail attached and there is an older main sail included as an emergency backup. A jib, again easy to set up is included and the rudder assembly easily comes off the transom when towing.
The cockpit is tidy and would be a comfy spot for 4, and some padding offers the bum a little bit of comfort. Two cockpit storage lockers offer a place to store the fuel tank for the outboard and the necessary ropes and rigging etc. The transom has the mounting plate for the Johnson 8Hp outboard motor and also a 4 step boarding ladder assisting with boarding.
The boat is powered (combustion power) by a Johnson 8Hp 2 stoke outboard. The motor was serviced late September 2017 (receipt on file) and our own mechanical inspection indicates a great motor free of any mechanical defects. So motoring this little 18 foot package should be a delight with the reliability afforded by way of this motor.
Stainless dress pulpit and push pit are not only practical inclusions on the bow and transom but also finish the boat off aesthetically. Making your way down into the cabin, a large over head sliding hatch and a fore deck hatch provide light, access and ventilation and the cabin has large side translucent windows. The cabin is neatly presented with varnished timber work, tidy and clean upholstery and cushions. There is room to store a chemical toilet (not included) and a privacy screen is installed.
Over the centre board keel housing case, small polished timber work folds up nicely to make a small table and the electrical system sits port side. A stereo is fitted to provide some radio, along with a portable VHF hand held radio and a 27-meg radio for comms.

The rig is trailered on a C section gal framed trailer that has been registered in NSW at some stage as "Homemade" but we feel it's the original trailer for the Careels that were made by Messent Trailers. The tow away price includes at the time of purchase the trailer being sold in RWC condition for registering if not going back to NSW (approx. $900 in brakes/tyres and reconditioning including labour). The price doesn't include new rego for other states inc QLD this is a cost to the buyer.
Offered to the market at a bargain price of $8,995 including the work to the trailer, this rig offers the discerning sailing enthusiast sensational value. We welcome you down to JCM and make a time to inspect this lovely Careel 18 TS.
