1981 Squadron Yachts Minuteman 15 For Sale

This is a double hull fiberglass catboat that is a Gunter rig at full sail and a gaff rig when reefed. I have made numerous improvement including a hinged mast installed by Marshall Marine (Massachusetts) in cooperation with Everett Engineering which makes set up and take down fast and convenient for one person.
