For Sale: A Scow M-9 INNOVATION

posted on

For Sale-A scow 'INNOVATION' M-9 carbon & epoxy hull, complete

Offered for sale is the A scow/V-38 INNOVATION, built new by the legendary Eric Goetz, and rigged out by Brad Robinson, in 2007.

Everything relating to this boat is part of the sale: hull, spars, aluminum trailer, canvas, electronics, all of it.

INNOVATION is the first (and so far only) A scow to be built entirely of carbon fibre and epoxy resin. Most A scows weigh in at or above the class minimum of 1,850 pounds. INNOVATION weighs about 1,250 pounds, depending upon which spar she is carrying. The performance compared to a 'standard' A scow, particularly downwind, is astounding.

Even her sideboards are carbon fibre foils, not agricultural flat 1/2" aluminum plate. The boards are so light, they float.

Brad sailed his last weather beat on this boat, in 2015.

Now offered at US$66,000.. Stored in Deephaven, Minnesota, USA. 

For more information, please contact Tom Burton 612.386.9037, or Willie Crear 207.423.0061, or Susana Robinson 612.209.0213. Delivery anywhere in the world can be arranged.

For Sale: A Scow M-10 Animal House

posted on

After 11 great years of racing their 2001 38 foot A scow the partners of M-10 Animal House have determined that infirmities of their individual bodies due to age dictate they pass their pride and joy - A scow M-10 Animal House - on to a new owner or set of owners.

The desire is to move the boat to an excited new owner ASAP and is priced to do so: $35,000 or best offer for the boat, all sails, trailer, boat lift all covers and usual equipment. It has been well maintained, has a new sprit and dings repaired and is ready to race. If interested please put in your bid. Have in mind that no A scow has been built in 10 years and new pricing for the comparable equipment would be hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The boat is a 2001 model which is relatively new in this fleet of well built boats the last of which was believed to be built in 2008. It is fast and competitive but could use a newer main sail and perhaps a newer spinnaker. It is offered for sale with 22 sails consisting of 7 whomper spinnakers and a 8th midsize spinnaker, 5 mainsails the newest being a 2015 model, 9 jibs the newest being a 2016 jib. If interested please contact Jack Strothman at 612-747-5566 or by email to jastrothman@ msn.com.
