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,

csail-

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

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

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.
