West Wight Potter 15 Sailboat

West Wight is a trailerable sailboat produced in the United States by HMS Marine. The first batch of the sailboat was manufactured in 1979 with the duo of Herb Stewart and Stanley T. Smith as the designers.


Safe Sailing

Worthy of mention is that the West Wight Potter 15 was built to include features that were lacking in its predecessor, the West Wight Potter 14.

Since 1979, over 2,600 units of the keelboat have been manufactured, and production is still on to date. That makes the West Wight Potter 15 one of the keelboats that transitioned the 70’s to the year 2000.
