NEW and never in the water, this Precision 185 is advantageously priced to "Move" her from our inventory and if you are a serious "want to get into sailing" person, we are motivated to extend much better to the individual who gets here first. Somewhere around $240/month will buy this lovely design.
The Precision 185 is one of the FEW NEW performance dinghies being produced today by legitimate builders. PERFORMANCE is @ the core, yet the Precision 185 has a VERY comfortable cockpit compared to older designs that have that obtrusive "knee knocking" centerboard trunk that your first mate will NEVER enjoy. Complete with a place for an Igloo cooler designed to fit just aft of the mast, your refreshment center is never far away after an exhilarating sail!
Another notable characteristic of the Precision 185 is her surprising stability, even in the centerboard version offered here. Surprising stability for an unballasted boat of this size. Certain to bring enjoyment to you and your first mate without her being "tippy". Safer and more enjoyable.
The mast complete with internal halyards is light for raising and very flexible for sail setting - - part of what can make learning how to sail better and easier. The head sail comes with a Harken Rollerfurling System for taming the headsail and with the mid-cockpit/mid-boom sheeting sail control is easy to deal with and you'll enjoy the fact that the mainsheet does not wrapping around your crew's neck @ every tack or gybe as end of the boom sheeting setups frequently do. The swim platform on the transom extends the range of use of the Precision 185 to family anchoring and swimming. And if you so choose, you can add a 2 hp to 4 hp kicker to assist in getting where you need to go if the air subsides. Given the beautiful of the hull & sailplan and the ergonomic success of this JIM TAYLOR design, you will be hard pressed to find an niftier "performance daysailor" this pretty that will return so much pleasure.
Pricing shown is for the boat FOB Factory and includes the Harken roller furling jib and gear, fiberglass rudder blade in lieu of wood, boom vang,and even a portable ice chest. Trailer, shipping from factory and a few other items are additional. Whether you are new to sailing or have sailed for years the Precision 185 will get you sailing comfortably in surprising stability. Great sailing boat. And sometimes it is nice to have something NEW. It just feels great.
With great financing available you can own this NEW PRECISION 185 for around 240 per month. Cheaper than renting and you can sail it each weekend every month !
