1988 Quickstep 24ft Sailboat

Glimmer is a 1988 Quickstep 24, designed by Ted Brewer and built by Quickstep, Inc. The design is a monohull full keel with a skeg hung rudder cutaway to reduce drag. The hull material is hand laid fiberglass with a cast lead ballast internally bonded to the hull. The rudder is fiberglass with a bronze post to a wood tiller.

The boat comes with a Honda 5-HP outboard motor (new in 2023), with a portable gas tank. The motor mounts into a wet well in the transom. There is an installed 12 VDC system, which includes 1 deep cycle battery, a small distribution panel, and a working solar panel. There is a digital depth sounder.

Accommodations include 2 quarter berths and a V berth forward, a sink, and an ice box. The head is mounted at the V berth and is piped to a bladder tank and an overboard thru hull valve. The cabin is comfortable and the interior is in good condition.

The winches are in good condition and easily accessed for one-handed sailing. There is a mainsail and jib in good condition. She has a gunwale-mount swim ladder and comes with a 10-foot fiberglass Noreaster sailing dingy.

Glimmer has been professionally maintained and stored. All the ropes and running rigging were replaced in the spring of 2023. Care and maintenance is above-average.

Asking price: $8,500
