COOL BOAT DESIGNS – For over 42 years, International Marine manufactured two boats, the West Wight Potter 15 and West Wight Potter 19. Over time, we at International Marine responded to sailing enthusiasts’ needs by designing and building the Sanibel and Voyager pocket cruisers. The dedication and focus is on building a quality, time tested design that appeals to the experienced, as well as the new sailing enthusiast.
By building the overwhelming majority of International Marine sailboats to the sailor’s direct order, we build exactly the boat to suit the budget or sailing needs. We strive to offer great value, but not at the sacrifice of quality building techniques or components. Harken, Sunbrella, Cruising Design, etc. are among the names that contribute to a boat that will give you years of sailing enjoyment.
The world famous West Wight Potter 15 sloop is one of the best known and oldest sailboats in the cruising fraternity. Over 2,600 of these attractive compact cruisers currently sail all over the world. Continuously improved over her long history, the Potter 15 has achieved a noteworthy record of sailing successes, including sailing single-handed from Seattle to Ketchikan and from England to Sweden across the North Atlantic.
The Sanibel 18 Pocket cruiser handles with superb cruising performance and and great stability with 325 pounds of lead ballast but maintains the low draft needed to explore the shallows. The Sanibel’s timeless look combines with modern features and production techniques to create a fantastic sailboat for experts and novices alike.
The Voyager 20 is a true coastal cruiser (self righting and weatherly) with exceptional sailing performance on all points of sail. Easy to rig, a pleasure to sail, but best of all, one person can launch, sail and recover a Voyager, so when your adventure is over, you can trailer it and take her home with you.
Come down to meet the people behind the boats and see these cool boat designs at the Annapolis Boat Show starting Thursday Oct 10th.
