Very successful Newport, RI Fleet 50 boat for sale. Owned and maintained by marine industry professional.

We bought the boat in 1993 as a family club race boat out of on land storage where it had been for a few years. The boat had never been competitively raced and was still in factory condition. Over the last 25 years we have done everything you could ever do to a J/24 to optimize it. The boat has traveled over the years as far as South Carolina but not often and not for almost 10 years.(kids...) Check Results | J/24 Fleet 50 to see results. Recently 2016 2nd overall and 2017, 3rd overall. The boat obviously has it's bumps and dings but is in excellent shape.

Bottom first stripped and faired, keel optimized etc in ~1997.
Moved from mooring summer storage in Bristol, RI to dry storage at Sail Newport ~2000.
Extensive winter long indoors facelift and optimization in 2005 including but not limited to:
-75% of deck re-cored with no wet spots remaining
-deck repainted with awlgrip
-new teak toe rail custom made and installed
-all deck hardware brand new including winches, traveler, pulpit, pushpit, stanchions etc etc
-aft hatches glassed in

-all vermiculite removed (this was actually in 1997)
-mast step area reinforced

Spring 2015 Mercury 5hp outboard engine brand new
Spring 2017 Lifelines, Main Halyard, spin sheets, jib cars etc etc new
Winter 2018 (right now) hull, keel and rudder paint touch up and fairing

All equipment with the boat is in excellent condition and spares are available for just about everything. There's more rope and hardware and sails than I could ever list. Best set of sails are ~2015 vintage with just 2 summer weeknight seasons on them.

Price includes:
Mast, boom, standing and running rigging, carbon Forte spin pole
Trailer (single axle triad, looks rough but has had axle, spring, pads and more replaced), spare tire
Tactick Racemaster (new 2016)
All the sails we own... there's a lot
Kinder grey canvas deck cover, keel cover and rudder cover
All spare parts we have
All spare rope made for the boat (many never used)

There's a lot more, email for details or questions.

The boat is priced very low already. It is negotiable but is worth every penny. We are looking for it to go to a good home as it has been a lifetime of fun and memories for our family. Bonus: if the boat is staying in Newport and racing in Fleet 50 we may consider some more non-conventional payment terms or pricing.
