Precision 165, 2011
Note that this is the same 2011 boat on sites from Austin, TX...I bought it in summer of 2012. A sloop rigged compact cruiser that is truly easy to trailer and launch with 1100 lbs boat and trailer. Designed to be a sprightly performer with great stability due to wide beam and low center of gravity with lead in lower third of the bulb fin keel. The shallow draft makes it easy to beach and sits low on the trailer.
It has more sail area than the larger P18 for great sailing speed. The modern stem profile gives it a long effective sailing length for high top end speed and a very narrow bow entry angle makes it cut through waves easily.
The two sails are in excellent condition with minimum wrinkles being very crisp and clean due to careful flaking and loose securing to boom. Bought summer of 2012 from person who only sailed it 3 times and was kept on trailer.
The boat was new and came with no extras at all, so I added over $2400 of needed items like a quality motor.
I modified it to have the halyards and a jib downhaul led to the cockpit for safety and ease. Also added mainsail sail slugs and a SS stop so it remains in the mast track when doused so it can stack nicely on the boom.
It also comes with two 6'8" quarter berths with covered cushions, covered shelves on both cabin sides, jiffy reefing mainsail, 6'2" self bailing cockpit, galvanized Magic Tilt trailer with spare wheel, spring loaded SS HD motor mount, four 6" resin horn cleats.
Boat is very clean and shiny like new. Hull is bottom painted with Interlux Micron Extra with biolux.
Many standard and custom items added to make it perform better, easier, and safer:
2012 Tohatsu 3.5Hp 4 stroke long shaft motor.
New Sunbrella covers for mainsail, tiller, and
Jib/foredeck bag (rigged and ready to hoist jib).
Upgraded jib to brass spring hanks (were plastic twist which come loose when downhauling).
Magic Tilt galvanized trailer in excellent condition with spare wheel. Added a winch facing forward for ease of launching so vehicle wheels stay just at water's edge regardless of a shallow ramp.
Thetford Porti potti.
Mounted fire extinguisher.
24DC battery with box mounted plus Smart Vector automatic battery charger.
Main entry hatch is bevel cut into two pieces for easier handling and stowage.
* Harken extreme angle fairleads added to jib cam cleats (necessary for side pull when single handing or use by crew).
"Tiller Stay" tensioner from Catalina to hold rudder at fixed position or adjust play (higher quality than other brands) .
Battlestick tiller extender (necessary if sitting forward).
Catalina HD vinyl steps added to swim ladder round rungs (is painful without).
Boom vang replaced mini V-jam cleat with Garhauer fiddle block cam cleat for ease of control.
Rudder SS lifting mechanism with jam cleat (because std lever arm is not easily within reach).
Mast stern crutch with 3" roller sits high (std was too flimsy and short).
V-jam cleat for boom topping lift.
Cockpit rope hangups. Location: Blacksburg, VA Asking Price: $10,950 Contact: Jim Shugart, 540-951-2539

Precision 18, 2000
Extremely well cared for boat. Second owner. Boat has been stored indoors between seasons its entire life, and only sailed in fresh water. You would be hard pressed to find a cleaner used boat, inside and out. We are moving to a city and reluctantly must get rid of the boat and another vehicle.......So, here's the deal. It is going to cost me some $$'s to move and store this boat. I will pass on the savings to a buyer who makes me an offer before I move in December. I may be able to assist in delivery of the boat.

CDI furler and furling genoa new in '12. Bottom painted in '12. New Raymarine ST 40 in '12. New backstay in '12. House battery new in '13. Performance trailer. Sail cover. Cockpit cushions. Danforth anchor. 5 watt solar panel, plus numerous gear and accessories included.
