AMF/Alcort vintage sailboat ads

here are some pretty cool brochures from 1973 showing off the Sunfish sailboat, as well as some of it’s siblings that were offered at the time by the manufacturer AMF Alcort.  there is the slightly smaller Minifish and Sailfish, as well as the Puffer, Force 5, and Flying Fish, and 2 oddballs – the Hilu and the SeaMoth II. (click on the pictures for larger versions of each picture.)

thanks to blackbelair from over at the Yahoo Sunfish Sailor Group for permission to post these vintage brochures.  I think that the Sunfish is the only one of these sailboats still in production (although now being manufactured by Laser Performance).  and the current price is $4220, just a bit more than the 1973 price of $599.

    I love vintage sailboat brochures, especially when it’s my vintage. And who do you think of when you look at the 5th boat?
