The San Juan 24 is an American sailboat that was designed by Bruce Kirby as an International Offshore Rule Quarter Ton class racer.[1][2]


The design was built by the Clark Boat Company in Kent, Washington, United States, starting in 1973 but it is now out of production. A total of 1200 examples of the design were built.[1][3]


The San Juan 24 is a small recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig, a raked stem, a raised reverse transom, an internally-mounted spade-type rudder controlled by a tiller and a fixed fin keel. It displaces 3,200 lb (1,451 kg) and carries 1,650 lb (748 kg) of lead ballast.[1]

The boat has a draft of 4.00 ft (1.22 m) with the standard keel fitted and is normally fitted with a small outboard motor for docking and maneuvering.[1]

The design has a PHRF racing average handicap of 219 with a high of 231 and low of 216. It has a hull speed of 5.92 kn (10.96 km/h).[4]
