Introduced in 1971, the Potter 19 offers a spacious and comfortable interior combined with a safe, enjoyable, fun sailing experience. The West Wight Potter 19 offers great stability, easy towing and easy handling.
The Potter 19’s keel design retracts vertically into the hull. The fully retracting keel allows the Potter to be the only fully beachable cruiser her size – great for going ashore in remote areas. The keel is raised and lowered by using a convenient winch, which is operated from the cockpit. This allows the skipper to adjust the keel position, without having to leave the helm
The Potter 19 has closed cell foam flotation, fore and aft, and is unsinkable. The roomy interior features four sleeping berths while at the same time providing seating for up to five persons. Storage is extensive with compartments under each berth, a forward chain locker, storage under the sink and stove (to port and starboard), and handy seat back bins.
With simple rigging, the Potter 19 is one of the quickest boats to rig and launch in her size. Most Potter 19s can be rigged and launched in 45 minutes or less with no special skill orstrength. A mast-raising system allows for one-person rigging if desired.
Over-all length and height on the standard or Baja trailer allows the Potter 19 to be parked in an typical garage. The West Wight Potter 19 is a terrific boat for those long weekends! Enjoy trailering to new camping and recreational sights with all the comforts of a camper while being able, at a moments notice, to launch and sail away.
At 70 years of age I have had many sailing vessels ie’
30′ Tri 36′ motorsailer hobies ect. The WWP has me very much interested because at my age (still very active) downsizing is the keyword. I would like to rent or buy a 19. I am in Louisiana and sail here!
Anyone that can offer suggestions will be appreciated.

Life’s to short so why not buy one. We used to live on a Gozzard 32C but eventually sold her due to Job relocation. We missed sailing so we just bought a WWP 19 and had it trailer-ed to Victoria Canada. We called her Puffin and she is fantastic.
