Thank you for your interest.

2012 West Wight Potter 19

with 2012 EZ-Loader trailer + 2020 Mercury propane outboard

We bought Kestrel in 2020. Until then, she had been sailed only twice—by her first owner who bought her brand new. We are the second owners and have sailed with her a total of 60 days in freshwater, and 10 days in salt water. She has been well cared for and is in awesome condition—an excellent gunkholer.

With a nearly 400-lb. centerboard, the Potter 19 is stable and forgiving on the water. Due to the erratic wind conditions of the mountain lake we have typically sailed in, she is rigged for quick and easy reefing and furling.

Why are we selling?

While we have really enjoyed traveling in this “camper-cruiser,” we’re selling Kestrel because we’ve purchased a larger coastal cruiser and are now focused on that. She deserves a good home and is ready for more adventure!
