24' Seafarer

Hi, new to this, In answer to your Question about prices being low... I don't understand either but was glad when I purchased my 24' Seafarer a little over two years ago. It sails fantastic, 3600.00 with a trailer and large assortment of sails. Have not hadto put much in it. First year only used it a couple of months last year was gone for about 5 months. Pure joy, handled great in 16' waves and heavy winds on Lake Superior... didn't need much wind to get her moving. Don't let your friends go in the cabin when the waves get about 10' or more......lol. It has taught me enough to choose to sell my farm and auction off most of my stuff and look for a boat to live aboard for 8 to 10 years.... Great way to learn to sail and make you think about warmer places all over the world. Good luck on your venture.

I think we felt a bit unsure about paying for the boat as it was being built


Ebay is not the right place as most of the buyers are to far away to make moving a boat that size and price any sense cost wise


IMHP it would see more action in the correct local paper
My father had a 24 quite awhile back, fast boat and he loved it. I don't recall him having any trouble with it at all. I sailed it from NJ up past Manhattan to Tarrytown and it seemed very responsive and stiff. As I recall it was pretty nice inside too. It was a long time ago, so I don't remember a lot of details, sorry.
