Meantime, probably your nearest J/24 bargain, in Whitby and good racing condition with road trailer etc, has gone to Ireland, and at a price a third of you upper limit in first posting. Also off to Ireland since are two other J/24 bargains, well set up for racing, from Exeter and Falmouth, each just over half your target.

Conratulations on your new purchase Corms,

I've been watching this thread with some interest since I found myself in a similar position, wanting a sportsboat after racing a Club 19 for a season and a bit. Eventually we bought the Projection 762 for a variety of reasons (I suspect our criteria were a little different to yours, eg can't camp on a Sonar).

Enjoy the Sonar, they looked fun at Tarbert...

Thanks Chic

We enquired about a Projection but someone had put a deposit down on it. We were also very interested in a Benuteau 25 but sometimes we can only manage 3 of a crew, so the Sonar seemed the suitable choice.

Projection looks a lovely boat.

probably a good choice with some future OD racing to boot.

 

the platou (bene 25) does like three average people hiking plus a main trimmer, but two big blokes and the main man swinging round often does the job.
