My wife Kathy recently said she'd go sailing with me more if we had a trimaran with some modicum of accomodations, and that she likes the F24 we rode on a while back. So what sites should I be watching for used boats on the market? Thanks!

Two places to start are Windcraft and the Finish Line.

Windcraft

The Finish Line

I got my F-27 through Windcraft, Don Wigston is a great guy to deal with.

My wife said the same thing after a few years racing on my J-24! We "test sailed" a Corsair F24M2 with Bob Gleason out of Buzzards Bay, Mass. His co. is called "The Multihull Source"

I brought my wife and all 4 of my kids (ages 8yrs. to a 4mo. old) and Bob brought his two young sons (ages 3+5) anyway, all 9 of us on his F24. There was plenty of room and the kids LOVED laying on the low side tramps, watching the waves go by underneath. The wife loved -not- healing with every puff and being able to stay in the **** with the baby, with tramps on both sides, and I loved driving from the high ama. I want one and as soon as the money is available (2 of those kids are in college now), I'm getting one.

I don't know who is the dealer in the PNW, but the factory is in San Diego I think, call them.

If you are not interested in racing, you can pick up a used F27 for about the same price as a F24M2 ($40K) , and have much more room inside, and a small galley, potty, all the stuff wives like! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

You could contact a Corsair Dealer or enter "Corsair F24" into a google search engine. Ian Farrier's website also has some good information on what to look for when buying a used boat. http://www.f-boat.com/

Hey All,

I was planning on getting an F24 when I retire. However, the market is so bad I will have to work for the rest of my life.

Since I will never retire, that only means that I can get my F24 much sooner than planned <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />.

Cheers, Playero

Better yet, get a F37 and live on it, now! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
