A 24 foot Sailboat is perfect for cruising the shore, Emerald Bay and the local marinas on beautiful Lake Tahoe. The 4 foot draft allows access to may of the docks attached to the restaurant scene on the north and west shore of the lake. In addition to the access, this cruising/ racing hull designed by Bruce Kirby is excellent heading into the wind a great benefit when encountering the canyon winds close to shore. The cabin below is a perfect place to get out of the sun and the wind when conditions merit.
This boat has three head sails up to 170 Genoa. The main was made in 2014 and the interior upholstery was done at the same time. Take a spin on a really quick boat when you want to see the true side of Tahoe - from the water.
This sailboat is located in Homewood about 6 miles from Tahoe City. It is located on a buoy and has a 8 foot skiff available for shore cruising around the Lake. From this location you can cruise to Sunnyside, Chambers Landing, Emerald Bay,Tahoe City and South Lake Tahoe and back to the marina in one day.
The sailboat has 3 headsails up to a 170 and a new 2015 Tohatsu Sail Pro 6hp motor. The interior v-birth, galley and single bunk all have new cushions since 2014. The San Juan 24 is listed as a crossover cruising racer. This boat is outfitted with a gas barbecue, cooler, 2 fishing pole holders and ample rigging for the 3 headsails.
Sailing along the west shore will give you great views of the region as well as an opportunity to sail the different canyon winds emptying into the lake. Tahoe is beautiful and the opportunity to see the natural scenery and the beautiful homes and mansions that cover the lakeshore is noteworthy. However, the pure peace of sailing that beautiful space is what will endure long after your days on the water.
Bruce Kirby designed this boat to be a winner from the start. First launched in 1972, she proved to be a classic in design, speed, looks, popularity price. There are over a thousand sailing world-wide. In IOR heyday, the SJ24 held more IOR certificates than any other boat design.
She's recognized to be particularly strong in light airs and in winds above 20 kts. She won overall best performance honors in Yachtings 10th One-of-a-kind regatta at Annapolis and first in division in a fleet that averaged 30 feet in length
We rented the San Juan 24 for a lovely day sail over Labor Day weekend. The boat was in perfect working order and was perfect for our sail to Emerald Bay. Steve was super friendly, extremely knowledgeable and he went above and beyond to make sure that my guests and I had a great time on the water. I would definitely rent from Steve again and am already looking forward to the next time we sail Lake Tahoe. Thanks, Steve!
As somebody who has never operated or rented a sailboat, Steve took the time to be extremely patient with us and guided us through details and instructions of docking and sailing before we were off on our own. He walked us through the boat in detail while also highlighting some great spots for us to explore. The entire process was painless, efficient and he was a pleasure to work with. Definitely an extremely positive first experience here on Boatbound, I would rent from Steve again.
