For Sale
Vortex Engineering Santa Barbara One Design Sailboat Hull - 6ft

Vortex Engineering Santa Barbara One Design serial #469. Purchased with the intentions of finishing it but I do not have the expertise or time required to do it. If you've ever seen a Santa Barbara in the water, the hull is 6ft long and they are IMPRESSIVE!

These hulls are rare.

This hull is made of fiberglass. The keel has been glassed in and has 12lbs of ballast installed. There is a plastic deck that comes with this but any good builder might just consider making a new deck. This boat could be beautiful and I wish that I had the skills to complete her.

Comes with the plans, sails (excellent shape), table stand (this is a good sized hull so this cut table works great) and everything you see in the pictures.

Local pickup in Las Vegas. I have feedback on eBay, RunRyder, RCU and Helifreak. This is also listed locally and on RCU.

$215

Is the Vortex the one with a flat deck or a cabin?

I'm not 100% sure on that, the best I can tell is from what the plans are showing (Pic above). There is a gentleman here in town with a Santa Barbara and after seeing his is why I started to scour the state for another one and this is the one I found...if it was finished I would keep it forever but now I just don't have the time.

I see a cabin on the plans you have there. I always thought the Vortex Santa Barbaras had a flat deck which I don't care for and the Hartmans had a cabin. Guess I was wrong.

SD rc boater, you are are part right, it is a 300 series or cabin boat as they where called, Vortex built SR#300 thru SR#719 then changed to the ocean racer, the 300 series was a 2 peace hull then glued together and the keel was flat on top, the ocean racer was a 1 peace hull with no seem and the keel had a round top, the Hartman hull was a copy of hull #420, and didn't have a cabin. the sticker in this boat doesn't look just right, it looks like the # has been changed? the hull is definitely a 300 series hull, it has the wide flange for the deck to sit on, I still think this would be a good deal for someone

PMs replied to! Great info on the boat, glad you guys know the hull. These are hard to find, it took me forever to round one up, I just wish that I had the expertise to finish her.

There is a finished one for sale here in San Diego. I would have bought it, but it is the racing model with the falt deck. I prefer the look of the model with the cabin.

I found another with a cabin locally....for sale and complete minus jib sail. I may pick it up since it's not a real project other than updating electronics

@VKGT -

Do not forget to get those plans scanned full-scale/300 dpi to *.PDF*files before you send 467 on to her new family. You need them for the jib and sail dimensions.
