Pros:
Cons:

IOR design 1/4 ton racer/cruiser. Points well to windward, and is well balanced. Its narrow stern gives some problems downwind in control, but it reaches well with a chute. Overall, it sails well and is very competitive with larger boats. It is still a popular boat in my area with a steady class competition in local races. I am very pleased with it, and I have owned for one year.

Pros:
Cons:

I have owned the boat for 3 yrs and love it. It sails well, though I do not race. Cruising for two is OK for a week or less. One shortcoming is lower headroom in the cabin, though the upside is beautiful lines. Balsa core so deck fittings need to be sealed/bedded well/regularly.

Pros:
Cons:

IOR design. Sails well on all points, but can be tender if you don't trim properly. Still a fast design. I have owned mine for three years. I have sailed Catalina 27, Cooper 42's and Thunderbirds: none of them are as exciting or rewarding to sail as the SJ 24. Adding a backstay adjuster improves upwind pointing ability and lessens the angle of heel in a blow. A great boat, with secure rigging and a strong hull.

I have own one to recondition it has a rotted core starboard due to a leaky deck.This of course is a problem with any neglected boat.The hull went aground and is damaged but has weathered the storm well.The boat is fixable.

Pros:
Cons:

Bruce Kirby (Laser, etc.) designed racer/ cruiser. Ballast to displacement ration 50% for superior balance and stability. Narrow entry bow with fin keel, this boat points tightly to weather and muscles slop and chop easily. Roomy below (we cruise, not race) and we find it easy to cook, eat, party, sleep and bathe aboard very comfortably for 4 or 5 days at a time. The cabin-top traveler system allows for precise mainsail control and shaping. Has dual headsail tracks for optimal jib and genoa sheeting. This is a fast, fun, nimble boat...easily handled by one person with all lines led aft.

I have lived on my San Juan for 4 years now in flordia, through 4 hurricanes. It is a great little sailboat, and has stood up proudly when many other sailboats 5 times her size and price sunk in hurricane Charley!!!

I am new to this boat, so I can't say a lot about her sailing abilities. I can, however, testify to the beautiful lines, strong construction and overall intelligent design. We fell in love with her in minutes!
