J/24 Racer/Cruiser with Trailer                                    $3.450

This boat was built in 1980 and is in much better shape than a lot of J24s the same age.  The donor beautifully finished it in a rich green with Awlgrip or similar finish. The bottom and keel have been refinished with a hard bottom paint and are also in extremely good shape.

There is a mooring available on Lake Winnipesaukee for this boat with shore access.  Please inquire.


The donor had it moored at his house on Lake Winnipesaukee and took very good care of it.  It comes with a very sturdy trailer, as you will see in the pics. This boat has a lot of miles left in it for a very low price!


The J/24 has been called the world’s most popular one design keelboat, and was one of the five original inductees into the sailboat hall of fame.   Over 5,400 of these boats were built, and most of them are still going strong!

Here is part of what Wikipedia has to say about the J24:

The J/24 is an international One-Design keelboat class as defined by the International Sailing Federation. The J/24 was created to fulfill the diverse needs of recreational sailors such as cruising, one design racing, day sailing, and handicap racing.

The J/24 class has more than 50,000 people sailing 5,300 boats worldwide; is established in nearly 40 countries with well over 150 active fleets; and is still considered the "gold standard" for modern one-design keelboats around the world. It is the world's most popular One-Design keelboat as measured by hulls produced.

Reasons for the J/24's popularity

The J/24 is no longer considered the most modern sailboat in its class, but it is still a very popular sailboat among keel boat racers. While some of the world's best J/24 sailors have the latest version J/24, a well-prepared 1977 model, built to the same shape and weight with rigid end-grained balsa core construction can still win sailing the class world championship even after 30,000+ miles of trailering. This is one of the many advantages of One-Design sailing that the J/24 is benefiting from.

Another reason for its popularity is that it is fairly easy and inexpensive to acquire a used boat and gear due to the large number of boats produced. There are 136 active fleets in the US alone, which offer a lot of race competition. This makes the J/24 a popular boat for beginners and experienced sailors.
