Up for sale is my 1998 Carrera 280 sportboat. It’s in great shape with many recent upgrades including standing rigging and lines, hydroturf foam cockpit floor and a new Mercury 4hp outboard engine. This is a fast boat with lots of cockpit space. PHRF rating is 93. The sails are in decent shape and are fine for beer can racing. If you want to win the PHRF championship of the world, you will want to get new sails. The boat is in my shop right now getting a new coat of epoxy barrier coat on the bottom.

The boat comes with a spare mast and rigging and everything you need to go sailing.

This boat is a faster more ergonomic version of the popular Carrera 290.

Specs are here:

The tandem axle trailer has just been refurbished including new LED lights, brakes, bearings and tires.

I am selling this boat because I want to race one design and I have purchased new boat already. This boat is stored indoors and is taking up space in my warehouse so its time for it to go.

If you have any questions or want to come see the boat please email or call mike at
