Hello, hoping someone around here can help me out. I'm trying to get out of my SJ 24 and have found a Hobie 21sc in the Puget Sound area. Trying to figure out a fair price and any issues I should be looking out for. I went and looked at it and it seemed very well sorted and sits on a good trailer. Two mains and jibs in good condition plus a gennaker. Tramps look solid. Fiberglass, too.

I've done a bit of research and haven't come across any glaring weak spots that I need to be careful of - are there any? Is this boat as fun and practical as it looks? The seller is asking for $8500. This seems high to me as you can find a pretty decent monohull for that kind of money, but I also know these are relatively rare boats.

Any help or advice is appreciated. Thanks!

All wish for a boat we want in good condition with the extras like a gennaker. You could easily spend that all in. I'm restoring one as we speak. I get to choose my options/deck layout/sails etc on my build but OEM is hard to argue with. Barter but it may be not too far off. I'm using Chip Buck at Whirlwind for my sails and couldn't be more satisfied but nearly $3000.00 and no gennaker hardware

Thanks, Tim. "Not too far off" is is exactly what I was afraid of! Should know soon if I'm the proud new owner. If it works out a squaretop main from Whirlwind will be very tempting. If it doesn't work out I swear I am going to find a cheaper hobby.

I have a love my Whirlwind square top main on my 21SC. He makes great sails.
