Boats for Sale or Wanted

Listings more than 6 months old may be removed.

The form for submitting ads to this page is here.

If you are looking to sell or buy a Potter or related gear please send us the information. Be sure to indicate your location -- someone in San Francisco is not too likely to want to make a phone call to New York to check on a used boat.

New listings are posted as they come in, and as we have time. It may take a week or more to get the ad posted. Once a month or three the page is wiped clean, and a new set of listings starts. (The assumption is that two months is probably enough to sell a boat, if it is going to sell. If two months go by, and there are no results, please resubmit the ad.)

If the item has been sold, send an email to . Please clearly identify the item -- we have to find the ad in the list below, and sometimes it is hard to do. Please include the complete time stamp at the bottom of your ad.

WANTED: WW Potter 14 (or 15) sails

I would like to purchase a well made lapper and a matching main, in good condition, for a WW Potter 14.

What I really want is the capability to take a reef in the main. Sure I can have my current main modified but a better main for all conditions is the objective. My working jib is ok but a lapper would be a capper.

If you have a good set of Potter 14 sails taking up room in the hold or garage, and the price is reasonable, I will be happy to put them to good use.

Selling my Potter today with some regrets but I'm moving into a Marshall Sandpiper as my wife and I are getting older and would prefer more open space. The Potter is loaded with brand new off shore triple stitched leather bound sails. I used them twice before I found the sandpiper and have turned my attention there. Custom cushions for cabin and cockpit, same color cover if you want to leave it out for an extended period, boom cover, brand new bilge pump, 2 anchors, paddle and some assorted goodies. Im a machinist and wood worker boater and made a custom mast holder for the tiller gudgeons. Also a custom release mechanism to drop the anchor off the bow from the cockpit. The boat has all custom made new closed cell foam insulation throughout , totally. Some new glass with the west system around the mast boot for added strength on the cabin roof. Mast and hardware shows use but Iv had no issues and had her over to near 40 degrees in high winds. The boat is totally dry after heavy rain. The motor bracket is also fitted with blocks to run the motor properly on plane. Tried a new bottom paint as I was out of the dark green. The lighter paint if slick to the touch and has had the same effect as the old stuff. I have near the whole gallon left as well. The trailer is not registered, its old steel with tilt, new wheel bearings and lights. Everything works , thats the way I live. I have a 3.5 mercury motor I may or may not sell. Iv used it flawlessly . The boat is ready to drop in and enjoy. To see the Potter you must call for an appointment, I will not respond to any other method. pictures here
