Brokers Description:

Under Pressure features a Triad Trailer for ease of moving to the places you might like to sail. The perfect day sailor for single hand sailing or with a crew. It offers the ease of a one design sailboat, while allowing for a stable platform often found in larger keel boat designs. If you’re looking for the perfect Day Sailor, Under Pressure is the boat for you.


Manufactures Description:

The First 18 SE delivers a dinghy-like sailing experience but on a more stable and safer platform, thanks to the wide and flat hull shape and deep-ballasted swinging keel. Twin rudders ensure complete control even when planing at double-digit speeds. Boat handling and deck controls are simplified as much as possible for the best sailing experience. The jib is furling, the gennaker is easily operated with a snuffer system, and a carbon mast without a backstay supports the powerful square-top mainsail, which ensures fast sailing even in light wind conditions. Thanks to its ergonomic and spacious open cockpit, the boat can be easily sailed solo or with 2 or even up to 3 crew members. Whether in challenging regattas or joyful day sails, you'll always have a chance to explore, learn, and grow with the boat's potential.

For Hank Boissoneault, Sailing is truly a family affair. Introduced to sailing by big brother Bryan, sailing has become a family hobby since 1970. Growing up in Sandusky, Ohio The Interlake was the natural choice for the racing sailor designed by Francis Sweisguth in 1932.  The boat design was commissioned by the Sandusky Sailing Club and is home to Fleet #1. Hank served as class president, class champion and has participated in Interlake events since the late 1970’s.  

 Hank also participated in the ILYA junior regatta circuit and once competed in the Bemis regatta for Lasers in San Francisco Bay. Moving on to college, Hank competed on the college circuit sailing for the University of Toledo. Through the years sailing has become the basis to many of my personal friends and associates to this day. 

"The opportunity to work for RCR and its talented staff is something I appreciate the most. RCR's excellent reputation and knowledge of the business makes selling boats a fun and enjoyable experience."
