Laser 3000 Sailing Dinghy complete with Combi Road Trailer & Launching Trolley - For Sale.
Available as at July 2018
Laser 3000 Sailing Dinghy, Sail No. 3019, in very good condition and ready to go straight out and sail. Just had new Main and Jib halliards fitted plus comes with a complete replacement running rigging rope pack to replace every rope on the boat (many items still in the pack not even fitted yet as the existing ropes are still OK). This is the second Laser 3000 I have owned as I rate them as an excellent boat.
Fast and exciting, but easy to sail, three sail trapeze boat. The rig is very controllable and can easily be depowered for beginners, light weight crews or heavy wind conditions.
Comes with mainsail (low stretch mylar type laminate which keeps it's shape well and, unusually for a high performance dinghy, is reefable), furling jib (excellent condition looks almost new) and a purple Asymmetric Spinnaker (Gennaker - a few small patches on one corner but apart from that in very good condition) and a good quality boat cover.
Norfolk Broads Toll paid until March 2019.
Only selling as my crew and I are on different working shifts so we rarely get time off to sail at the same time so I am looking for something I can cruise/camp in on my own (preferably with centreboard not dagger board and with some "sit in" seating for preservation of my, near pensioner, old knees).
Would prefer to sell for cash but might be tempted to swap/part exchange for one of the following dinghies with fibreglass or plastic hull: Fireball (I know it's not a cruising dinghy but since a boy I have always wanted one so this may be my last chance to fulfil that ambition before my knees give out completely!), Wayfarer, Wanderer, Lightning 368, Topper, Solo, Scorpion, Dart 15 or 16, Drascombe Scaffie/Dabber. Absolutely any condition considered as long as valuation commensurate with condition.
Alternatively I would consider an exchange for one of the following digital cameras Canon 5D MKIII, Fuji X-T2, Nikon D810, Nikon D750, Nikon D610, Sony A7 MKIII.
Bargain at only £975 o.n.o
(When new with trailer and trolley this package would have cost well over £5,000)
