Description:

WINDWARD 24 is a shallow draft cruising sailboat. Like her successful sisters, she is ideal for daysailing and overnighting.

Sail comfortably with family and friends in her generous cockpit. She is stable and can stand up to her rig. She is very fast on all points of sail. Owners report speeds of 8 knots in modest wind conditions.

Cruising accommodations are provided in the cabin and in the cockpit under an awning.

Glue and screw construction is rugged fir framing, two layers of 1/2" plywood on the bottom, and 1/2" plywood sides with epoxy completing the hull materials. Look for a design review in Boat Design Quarterly (No. 6). Plans include: materials, lines, construction, and 3 different sail plans. A full size frame plan is available.

Estimated cost for quality construction materials (not including power or sails) is $24000. This cost includes a high level of outfit and finish you can be proud of after putting the effort into building this fine boat.
