Columbia 24

any one have a columbia 24 or have had one?

my wife and I are going to look at a 1980 columbia 24 tomorrow and would like a little insight on any problem areas or concerns. I did some research on google but I cant find too much information about the boats. I found the columbia community web site but I found it difficult to navigate to find any suggestions on concerns or things to look out for. one thing I found interesting is the ad for the boat mentions a inboard gas engine but everything I read online says they only had a outboard mount.


any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think there is something amiss here. Columbia made three 24' models in the 1960s, but none in the 1980s.

See here.

my bad... sorry it is a challenger 24 ( also known as a challenger 7.4 ).



I was looking at a picture of a Columbia when I posted this and got side tracked on the name.

thanks for setting me straight on the name.
