Thread starter #1
J/24 is the most popular keelboat class worldwide, with more than 50,000 people sailing in 5,500+ boats in over 100 fleets in more than 30 countries. The J/24s success is its versatility. Equipped with offshore hatches and lifelines, the whole family can get involved. It's a pocket cruiser or world-class racer. The International J/24 is built in the USA, Japan, Argentina and Italy.

"Ensueno 3" is currently located at the downtown marina in Corpus Christi, TX; her trailer is dry stored in town.

· All the maneuvers were re-routed to the cockpit because her owner sails her single handed in the Bay of Corpus Christi, including flying her spinnaker solo! Nevertheless, she is ready for a racing crew as well.

· There is nothing wrong with this boat, except the owner maybe too aged.

· I can deliver to your marina or yacht club; you only pay gas and hotel fare (if overnight travel is needed)
