Re: thoughts on 1971 Yankee Dolphin 24?
Very pretty boat to my eye. Looks like a Tartan 27 little sister. Cramped down below, but well designed.
As has been said, it's all about the deck. Powered by outboard in a well - no problem to fix. Hull solid glass.
I think it's a vey nice little cruiser/day sailor that can handle some ugly weather.
