Re: What size trailer is needed for a 24ft sailboat?
Go to the marina and find one on a trailer. Bring your camera, tape measure and a sketch pad. I bought my 25' boat with no trailer, no truck, no sailing experience. Sounds moronic, I know, but it was all thought out. So, within 2 weeks I had to buy a dually trailer, retrofit it to accept a boat that was 90 miles away and deliver it to the marina so they could load it before snow fell. Snow, that's the frozen white stuff you see on TV. That was in late November, autumn to us. I had noticed an identical boat just 40 miles away, while I was looking at another. Off I went with the items I mentioned. That week, I found a powerboat trailer for $900 (US), raised the rollers on steel posts to the correct height and added brakes. December 8th we towed her home. That was a week before first snow.
Nice looking boat.
