Hutton 24
Hi all i have just brought a Hutton 24 ts, she is about 25 years old and has sawing keel.
The boat has been modified and changed over the years.
What i would like is some specs on the boat, i am trying and fine out if the changes are working. From what i can tell the keel has been replaced with a lighter one,and water ballast has been added. The boat sails well but is heavy one one side. I can drain the water on one side to bring her back but not sure how much weight to put into the keel if any.

So what i would like is some one who has or has had one to get some ideas
from any help would be good thanks

Are you in Oz???

My first boat was a Hutton 24. They are based on a dufour 24 hull, and are good boats, but to your specific questions i'm not entirely sure in terms of specific ballast figures.

No problem.

Mine was a great boat, but water ballast etc seems like a modification that is quite a bit dffierent from what my boat was.

Best of luck!

Hello Wall,

I have also just got one of these in fairly original condition. The water ballast is definitely a modification as the ballast was initially provided by the weight in the swinging keel and lead ingots placed in the hull.

Specifications for this boat can be found at
