Today we have scouted for you five used unregistered boats, i.e., watercraft, from 7.07 to 9.15 m, perfect for having fun and taking you cruising.

5 used boats from 7.07 to 9.15 m

They are so diverse: some have made yachting history, others are less well known. From the legendary Arpège to historic Swedish boats via French bestsellers to distinctive Polish cruisers. We present them in ascending order of length. A safe used car: guarantees the Sailing Newspaper!

Amulet 707 – 7.07 m – Berret’s Little Missile

The first of the small used boats we offer today will entertain you: we are talking about an Amulet 707 (7.00 x 2.40 m) that designer Jean Berret (the co-sign of the famous Berret-Racoupeau studio) designed in 1980 for Federico Avallone’s shipyard (which later took over Artmare).

The boat was distinguished by its speed, so much so that some Amulet achieved good results in the racing world. From Avallone’s shipyard came such “missiles” as Paperini’s Duck 31 and Duffy 30, Bergamini’s Tim 27, as well as a number of one-offs: not coincidentally, the shipyard added “Velieri da Corsa” to its name.

The Amulet is solid, well-built boat with a good hull/deck joint and strong stanchions. It goes dispatched in breezes but will also take you safely on mini-cruises because it is very stable.

The model for sale, which can be seen (and tested in navigation) on Lake Bolsena, is from 1980: it weighs 1,173 kg and has an 8-meter through-mast with two orders of spreaders. Complete with sailplay in excellent condition, it is powered by a recently serviced 5-horsepower outboard. Attractive price

First Class 8 – 8.50 m – Small big bestseller

We continue with the second of the unregistered used boats, a bestseller that again comes from the world of the 1980s. Designed in 1982 by the French duo Finot- Fauroux the First Class 8 (8.50 x 2.49 m) is one of the monotypes that became widely popular in Europe (more than a thousand hulls sold) and in Italy between the 1980s and 1990s, thanks in part to the work of a particularly dynamic and active class association.

Race-equipped deck, 7/8 weave, large cockpit-these are the main features. The interior is spartan, but the First 8 is designed for racing; the movable centreboard makes it trolleyable. Finally, one can point out the great resilience in the used market.

The model under review, which can be seen in Chioggia, is from 1991 and is sold together with its road cart with which you can take the boat wherever you want. Powered by 5-horsepower outboard, it has been well maintained over the years.

King’s Cruiser – 8.54m – Old-fashioned Swedish charm

We stay on the same size but radically change type for the third of the used boats for sale in our marketplace. A historic boat, for all intents and purposes. The King’s Cruiser (8.54 x 2.22 m) was the first boat built, in 1964, by the Swedish shipyard Örnmaskiner, which would become Storebro, a well-known Nordic powerboat brand, the following year.

The project, commissioned for the Swedish company Telfa, was by Tord Sundén. Before Örnmaskiner began serial production, King’s Cruisers were also being built by Harry Hallberg (Hallberg-Rassy ring a bell?) in Orust: Telfa sold hundreds of units worldwide, particularly in the United States and Italy.

The model we are telling you about today, visible in Genoa, is from 1964. Made of mahogany, it was refitted in 2019, with living opera laminated in 2022 with resin and fiberglass for total stagnation. It is powered by an 18-horsepower Yamaha, sleeps four, and is equipped with every accessory for quiet cruising. The berth is paid until June 30, 2024 and can be renewed if necessary.

Harpège – 9.14 m – The History of Sailing

We continue our review with the fourth of the unregistered used boats, a Classic Boat of historical value by Giornale della Vela, that is, one destined to gain value over time. Who doesn’t know theArpège (9.14 x 3.02 m), the first real large series fiberglass boat?

Thanks to an obscure mad engineer, Michel Dufour, who decides to design and then build his ideal boat. The first example in GRP was launched in 1967 and with him at the helm he won immediately. 1600 examples built from 1967 to 1978. There is nothing more to say.

The boat for sale, dated 1974, can be seen in Cagliari. The boat is currently dry-docked, and is ideal for novices or those who love Classic Boats, which offer unparalleled marine qualities. The price is negotiable.

Phobos 29 – 9.15 m – You have everything in 9 meters

We close with the fifth of the boats used under the lens. It is the turn of a Phobos 29 (9.15 x 2.95 m), a boat from the Polish shipyard Dalpol Yachts. A small cruiser for your comfortable cruising, featuring a distinctive cockpit with ultra-spacious “U” shaped seating, where six people can sit comfortably.

Used boats – Phobos 29

The interior has six beds (two doubles + two singles in square), kitchen, refrigerator. The design, from 2007 (but the boat is still in production) is by Jerzy Piesniewski.

The boat for sale, launched in June 2019, is in like-new condition and has sailed exclusively in fresh water, and is equipped for long cruises. Suffice it to say that in addition to batten mainsail, jib, and genoa, it also has Parasailor sail for carrying gaits. you can see it at the Ferrari and Tabacchini Boatyard in Lisanza (VA). The inboard engine is a Lombardini 28hp with only 110 hours of use.
