Spacesailer - SS24







Welcome, present and former owners of the yacht class 'Spacesailer 24' (abbreviated SS24). May you all find good seas and friendly winds aboard this affordable, confortable, family friendly yacht. A vessel easily handled solo yet roomy enough for family and friends.The Spacesailer 24 was designed by West Australian Kim Swarbrick and built by the family company, Swarbrick Bros of Osborne Park, Western Australia. Also built by Maitland Marine Moulders, Newport NSW. In its time it quickly proved to be a very popular small cruiser/racer.

The Spacesailer 24 is a medium-displacement 1995.4 kg (4400 lb) sloop, the boat sails well in all weather and sea conditions. The design allows maximum live-aboard facilities in a boat of this size with 1 .78 m (5 ft 10 in) cabin headroom and sleeping accommodation for five, plus extensive galley and stowage area. The Spacesailer 24 has a working sail area of 20.25 m2 (218 sq ft).

The Spacesailer 24 remains a very popular small yacht on the second-hand market many years after the last factory produced boat was built.

Photos, projects, stories etc.. from other SS24 skippers are welcomed and will be included in this site.
