J/24 for sale

There is one located on the Left coast in Portland,OR for $5,500 [but no trailer].

It is quite a racer: 7) sails including spinnakers.
There are not many for sale out here and the ones that are for sale average around $7K - $8K with trailer.

You should be able to find several 1970's versions out on the East coast.
They are nice sailing boats. I have raced on one on the Columbia River.

Good luck,

Randy

csail-

It would help if you said where you were located. Craigslist is a pretty good source to check.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

If you search yachtworld under jboats and then look at the results buy lenth you will find all the J24s


5K will not find a boat without problems ,having owned two and just buying the second this year i did a LOT of looking


You really dont want the pre 1980 boats because there are still many that have the vermiculite keel sump and the old style hatchs which leak bad

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

There are a bunch of boats in the midwest BUT the single axle trailer is really marginal for longer tows if you travle very far to bring the boat home

Check Ebay. There is a j/24 listed from Florida. $5k buy it now, but no trailer. (I have no connection or interest in this boat!!). Good luck in your search.
