For Sale and Wanted:

In operating and hosting this Sandpiper website (as a hoppy) requires financial funding. When listing your boat for sale online here if you could, help us offset the operating costs of this website by making a small donation whenever you sell your boat. You donations submitted will be greatly appreciated and listed when received on the Donations (Hall of Fame) webpage. Thank you! (updated Aug. 2010)

Sandpiper Sailboats were built from 1972 to 1993. The resale price can depend on allot of items such as; 

 - Age of the boat (year made).
 - Overall condition of the boat (any damage, leaks, paint peeling).
 - Condition of the Hull (was it beached on rocks)?
 - Condition of the Keel (screws up/down easily and not damaged).
 - The quality and condition of the sails.
 - The number of sails (Main, Geona, Working Jib, Storm Jib, Spinnaker).
 - The hardware condition (rigging, lines, blocks, anchor and anchor line).
 - The condition of the rudder and tiller.
 - Does it have a Chemical Toilet or a newer flush type model?
 - Does it include a gas motor (4 - 9 h.p.) is it 100% functional? Is it long shaft (recommended) or short shaft?
 - Does the motor have internal or external gas tank (s) and what size (2.5 - 5 gallons) external is better.
 - Does it have a 12 volt Battery? Does the motor charge the battery? Any solar panels?
 - Does it include a VHF Radio (with gps), AM/FM radio and a GPS locator or chartplotter?
 - Does it have night time lighting (bow, stern, mast, anchor, and cabin)?
 - Condition of the trailer and is it highway safe? (new tires, bearing, rollers, lights).

Most Sandpipers sell between the range of $4,000 to $8,000 (Canadian 2007) but the high demand for them keeps the value higher as they don't take long to resell. A former CL employee has informed us that back in 1973 a new Sandpiper with a trailer was selling for $2,100.00 and later in 1993 the last remaining Sandpipers were sold with a trailer at $12,500.00 If the Sandpiper was still in production at current pricing, would place it in the $20,000.00+ range.

For Sale: 1975 Sandpiper

1975 18.5 Sandpiper sailboat with cabin for sale or trade. Boat comes with main sail and 2 jibs. Includes trailer. Used this boat on the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair in 2004. The following season my dad bought a bigger boat and the Sandpiper has sat behind his garage ever since. Boat would require some cosmetic work, specifically I think I busted off one of the wood sliders for the companion way but beyond that it is in pretty decent shape. I purchased the boat back in 2004. If you have any questions or would like specific pics please let me know. This boat does not come with an outboard. I am reluctantly selling my Sandpiper, and here is a posting on Craigslist. http://detroit.craigslist.org/wyn/boa/3134497053.html you can also email me at Andy Dold.

For Sale: Sandpiper Custom Made Mast Inserts.

Custom made Mast inserts, for Sails with Slugs, Length can be made to order, up to 13". How to know what length? Just position the boom to where you want it and measure from the top of the gooseneck up to where the wide slot narrows in, that is your insert length. Now you can have your boom high and still get to reef down on the boom. Cost is $45 plus $10 for shipping. Email John Everingham or mail to: 1299 Napier Crescent, Oakville, Ontario L6H 2A5, Canada. phone 905-849-8663.
