Description

I am selling a Mercury Class 18" made in 1961, with all documentation on hand. Last time it was in the water was in the mid 1960's and it has been kept in a shaded garage until a few months ago. This is hull No. 393.
I have a few sails and original wooden mast. The hull will need paint at least in the stern before it can be returned to the water. Structurally, this boat is in great shape as the wood is perfect, it has no rot and it sits on a solid trailer with brand new tires for towing to its next destination. It will need registration as it has not been registered for 60 years.
