Used Boat Buying

Although published 20 years ago, the J/24 Used Boat Buyers Guide remains the best place to start to get a sense of what you should be looking for and thinking about if you decide to get into the J/24 game.  The other thing that hasn’t changed is that you will find the current owners will be eager to talk J/24’s with you and share knowledge.  So, start with the guide and then start to ask questions.  If you aren’t sure where to start asking questions, your District Governor will be happy to connect you with a local fleet.  As is proven out year after year at major regattas, there are plenty of very competitive older boats out there.
