Ivory hull, beige deck, tanbark sail.


Located at Crystal Lake, MI

This is an exceptionally good “like new” boat for a bargain price.  If you live in the Midwest and would benefit from buying a boat closer to you than the other boats listed on the brokerage page this is a good opportunity.


Owner’s comments:

This beautiful boat deserves a new owner who is a sailor!  Built in 2013 it is essentially a brand new boat having been in the water 8-10 times on Crystal Lake (in Michigan).  The rest of the time it was covered on a hoist or stored in a barn.  I first saw Melonseed skiffs when a group of them were sailing on Crystal Lake.  I bought one with every good intention of becoming a sailor.  Turns out I’m a fly fisherman … so my time on the water is spent fishing not sailing.  Neither the boat nor the trailer have been used much (so little that I never registered either one).  The trailer was used to get the boat here and then has been in the barn the rest of the time.


Included: Mooring cover, 7 ½’ oars, name “heavenly” and gold pinstripe, Cetol finish on the teak woodwork, trailer.

Owner’s comments:

Classic Boston Whaler Harpoon 5.2 Sailboat (1978) with Cuddy, in excellent, original condition. Purchased in 1988, we are the second owners. Our boat has been lightly used, and garage stored. This boat is complete, with all of the standard Boston Whaler Harpoon 5.2 equipment; including: North Sails (main and jib), Kenyon mast and boom, Harken standing and running rigging, and Elvstrom self-bailers. The Deck Seats, Fore-Deck Cover, Center Thwart, and Outboard Motor Mount are made of solid Teak. The Trailer is a Calkins (Hot Dip Galvanized) with 5.30-12” tires, Bearing Buddies, and dolly. The Rudder/Tiller and Keel are original, and are in great condition. The outboard is a 4 HP Evinrude, Long Shaft (1985) with remote tank and teak tank holder. For Trailering, we have a solid mahogany crutch (mast and boom), and a forward mast holder on the trailer.


This 17′ Daysailer has a 7′-6″ beam, Draft of 4.5”/44” and 160 square feet of sail. The Harpoon 5.2 is stable and fun to sail. It is perfect for the individual sailor or a family. With its roomy cockpit, the boat comfortably and safely seats four. The Cuddy keeps your belongings dry and out of the way. Designed by C&C Yachts and built by Boston Whaler, the Unsinkable Harpoon 5.2 has been referred to as the “Mercedes of Dinghies”.

2008 Melonseed Skiff # 410 “Navigemus”


Dark green hull, ivory deck tanbark sail. Oars, mooring cover, trailer with hand dolly, deck cleat. Located in Maryland


Owner’s comments:

I purchased my Melonseed in 2008 and used and enjoyed it about three weeks each year until 2015, however I have been unable to sail it since due to some health challenges.

My time with my boat called “Navigemus” (Latin for come sail away) was my best experience in sailing! Most of the time I sailed alone enjoying the art of sailing the way it was meant to be. I’ve taken pride in ownership and kept the boat in excellent shape. The gelcoat on the bottom of the boat was refinished in 2015 as well as some other minor repairs. The oiled teak finish has been maintained and recoated every year. “Navigemus” has always been kept it under cover when stored.


The boat is in excellent condition. I am including two bumpers, the hand tow bar, a spare tire, a can of axle grease, extra lines. I am sure the new owner will enjoy the boat as much as I have.
