Looking for a Cheap Sailboat with On-Board Toilet: Any Recommendations?

Inlägg av myroswe85 » ons 08 mar 2023, 11:05

Ahoy fellow sailors!

I am a newbie to the sailing community and I am in the market for a sailboat that won't break the bank. I am looking for a sailboat that either comes equipped with a built-in on board toilet or has an easy and common DIY way of installing one. Can anyone recommend a cheap sailboat that fits this criteria? I would love to hear about your experiences and any tips you may have.

Thank you in advance for your help and happy sailing!

If the only criteria is ”cheap & toilet”, I can recommend an Albin Vega.

The obvious question is: what kind of a budget are we talking about??
Not in any way degrading the Vega. I was the proud owner of one during 7 years.

Around 20k sek, I think.

I honestly doubt that you will be able to find a sailing boat around 20000SEK. Most of the boats around that amount of money range from IF boats to Hurley 22 meaning they are, in fact, too small for anything but a removable toilet. And such a contraption will likely ruin the cabin! You may as well look at the Blocket.se. Most of the cheap boats are simply too small.
I´v e found one boat that might fill the specificiations, but then at an asking price of 32000:- ( https://www.blocket.se/annons/goteborg/ ... /106948728 ).
Looking at the pictures I feel inclined to state that this boat might be worth 25000...maximum. Publishing a photo with a dirty toilet doesn´t make me that positive. So - ample room for negotiatons...
Good Luck
ps: A Vega around 20000 is out of the question as long as we don´t talk about close-to-wrecks requiring a lot of work (and money).

In my opinion!

Thanks for your opinion and blocket links - I'm spending some time there daily =)

By the way, is there a website with the list and tech data on all the small yachts(fritidsbåt)?
To research and compare.

Conducting research is almost half the fun. You may always try the present site. Rather scarce with older english sailboats though.
Hurley 18 is a small boat - should be possible to use a "Porta Potti" but but....or butt butt :mrgreen:
