1979 J/24

  • "Fever" is a fresh-water sailed J/24 that comes race-ready with trailer included. The legendary J/24 is the first in a line of very successful J/Boats, now over 25 years in the making. She's a proven one-design race boat with tremendous credentials. She can be a weekend cruiser, club racer, world-class racer or day sailor. There are nearly 5,500 J/24's world-wide with a strong class support. She's fun to sail with a mixed-generation crew and a great bridge between small boat sailing and large boat sailing.
