PARTING OUT J24 with Updated Trailer, 4Hp Suzuki outboard, Lopez blocks and numerous sails


We just moved up to a j105 and am selling my 1978 j24. The boat was completely updated in the last 10 years, but is due for a refresh. She can be sailed with no issues for a number of years, but you will want to pay attention to details, such as the bottom job and one potential soft spot in the stbd deck at the chain plate, as well as a thorough cleaning. It comes with a custom j24 trailer that has been completely updated this year - new bearings, tires, brakes, lights and hitch coupler. All it needs is a coat of paint and you have a new-to-you trailer. As you will see in the pics, it started life as an Etchells trailer, so the J24 rides stern-first on it. It is very distinctive - your friends will never miss you going down the highway.

The engine is a 4hp Suzuki longshaft that was fully serviced two years ago and runs great. Always starts on the 2nd pull.

The boat comes with two plus suits of sails, plus safety gear. It has interior cushions, but they need to be recovered. I know where a set is that can be had for cheap. It is wired for dockside power and a bilge pump, so you can leave it in the water or dry sail it, as you prefer.

Down below the boat has had no attention paid to it, other than keeping it dry, for the last five years - we just sailed it. It needs a thorough cleaning, but that is why it is cheap.

I have spent $2,500 on the boat and trailer in the last 6 months getting it ready for the next owner. I am just trying to get that money out of it, but feel free to make a cash offer.

A full price offer gets the Lopez blocks that are on the boat. Anything less than $2,500, those go on eBay.

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

The boat is located in Deltaville VA at my home there. I will be there some portion of every weekend most of the summer and am happy to show you the boat.

You can reach me by email at the above link and I will get right back to you or via phone at 7fore8-Oh17fore, where the code for the area is 54(1 less than 1). YOU MUST INCLUDE A WORKING US PHONE NUMBER IN YOUR RESPONSE OR I WILL ASSUME YOU ARE AN INTERNET SCAMMER.



My J24 is still available. Make an offer! I don't want to go the strip and donate route, but need it out of my yard.

I can deliver anywhere within 500 miles of Richmond VA, if that helps

Thanks for looking


I am now selling parts of the boat. Everything is available, with the exception of the following, which have been sold:
Rudder, Tiller and Tiller extension
Cockpit winches
Traveler and Mainsheet blocks
All sheets - Spin, Jib and Main
Outboard Engine
All Sails

That leaves the trailer, the hull, including all hatches and associated fittings, the mast, boom and spinnaker pole, all interior components, including cushions, which are usable but need cleaning, electrical system, sink and ladder, bow and stern pulpits, stanchions, life lines, shrouds and stays, plus all deck fittings, less the traveler and winches.

Let me know what you need and make an offer.

My # 54(1 less than one) - 7 fore ate - Zer(ooh)17fore




Thanks for the interest. I took a closer look at the cushions. Not clean enough to be worth shipping. Try this guy in Portsmouth VA. He had a relatively new set he was selling for $100. Mark is his name and his cell is (757) 580-7116. Cheers, Mike
