Pre-owned trimarans need some love too!

October 3, 2018 Leslie Gabriel

The hardest thing about buying a used fiberglass sailboat is keeping your head straight!

With a new boat you (in theory, at least) get what you pay for, but entering the used boat market can be a bit like going through Alice’s looking glass. Is a shiny new 35-foot performance cruiser beyond your pay grade? Not to worry, there’s a fantastic looking used 36-footer with lots of gear for sale on Craigslist for less than the price of a car. Of course, the reality is rarely that simple. Systems and mechanical fasteners have a way of breaking down over the years, and even fiberglass has its limitations.

About the Author

Leslie Gabriel

I love being on the water, in the water, or just around the water. I've raced with my husband, and cruised with many friends over the years, in the BVI's, USVI's, Chesapeake Bay, Key West, San Diego, and San Francisco Bay. I prefer cruising over racing, mellow adventures on the water are the best. When we're not on the water or at our desks you can find us in the desert riding our BMW dual sports bikes! Livin' life! Managing Partner at 180 Marine. 180 Marine is the fastest growing Corsair Marine dealer in the US. We're based in Denver, Colorado, where we find that an active lifestyle is important, and we travel frequently. Friends and family were not surprised when we launched a multihull dealership in land-locked Denver...perfect for keeping Denver's profile high as an epicenter for outdoor entrepreneurs. We primarily receive boats from Vietnam into Oakland, and Long Beach California, and Pensacola, Florida. From these locations, the boats can be delivered almost anywhere. You can contact me at
