Great racing and fun at Sandringham

It’s February and the second half of the season is starting. Here’s your opportunity to get into owning and skippering your own boat very cheaply, we have two J24 yachts available for sale at Sandringham and there are more available around Australia that can be brought to Sandringham.

Owning your own J24 racing yacht is one of the cheapest ways to get into small keelboat ownership. Club membership is less than your average golf club and the cost to maintain your yacht on the hardstand at Sandringham is less than almost anywhere else.

There are nearly 6000 J24s in the world and around 200 in Australia, Sandringham has a fleet of around 20 so there is plenty of competition for racing and plenty of friendship and camaraderie for those learning the boat. In fact we’ll mentor you all the way till you get the hang of it.

Buying one of the two J24 yachts available at Sandringham gives you a big headstart, storage on the hardstand (where you keep your boat) is already organised, take over the boat and you have a place to put it already !

You don’t have to own it on your own ! A J24 is sailed with 4-5 people so buying one with someone else and halving the cost is a great way to buy easy and have part of your crew already in place. You could be sailing you own boat for less than you think. How much ? Share your ownership and you could be sailing for less than $6000.

That’s a 24 ft racing keelboat with mainsail, genoa, jib and spinnaker for less than the cost of your average racing dinghy. Plus you get 4 berths down below so you can spend the weekend away with your family – kids love them. Going sailing in dad’s boat.
