West Wight Potter

West Wight Potter sailboats, the Potter 15 and Potter 19, represent tradition, style, and proven quality for the trailer sailor. These world famous pocket cruisers store and sail easily, offer features not seen in boats of this size, and come in the most affordable package on the market.

West Wight Potter has two trailerable sailboat models – the 15 and the 19. Named for their length, both models offer a spacious cabin with comfortable berths. These sailboats are easy to rig and launch, and can be parked and stored in a typical garage.

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. Adding to great tradition,  we continually work to incrementally improve the Potter 15 and today's  boats are better than ever. Below we list just a few features which  contribute to the beauty and tradition of the Potter 15.

  • Wide beam and unique hull configuration combine to provide the stability and sea-going attributes of far larger boats.
  • Designed for safety and ease of sailing so that even in  stronger winds, the Potter 15 remains stable under sail, stays level on  the water, and is known for her dry cockpit.
  • All new West Wight Potters are protected by our exclusiveThree year Warranty.
  • The standard kick-up rudder, fully retracting  swing-keel, and molded in keelsons make her one of the few beachable  cruisers, great for going ashore in remote areas for that special picnic  or exploring new shoreline.
  • With our specially designed fittings, one person can  rig, launch, and sail-away in less than 30 minutes. Just step the mast,  connect the side stays and you have completed the standing rigging. The  Potter 15 is designed to make that impulse to go sailing on a nice  afternoon both achievable and enjoyable!
