Buy a Boat

As a non-profit organization, the LWSA is fortunate to receive a variety of donated boats from generous supporters in the area. Occasionally we are able to use these boats in our youth sailing program, but more often we sell them to help benefit this program, which has exposed thousands of kids to sailing since 1988.

We typically sell these boats below market price - a practice that is not only consistent with our mission but also helps us to move them quickly!

We would be happy to show you these boats or answer any questions you may have. Please email us at .

If you're interested in donating a used boat, read more about it here.

The LWSA is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

J/24 Racer/Cruiser "Finishing Touch" - $2495

FINISHING TOUCH is a fresh water boat that has been sailed on Lake Winnipesaukee its entire life, and has been owned and cared for by the donor for 32 years. Built in 1979, it is in extremely solid condition – and has a lot of miles left in it for a very low price!

The J24 has been called the world's most popular one design keelboat. Over 5,400 of these boats were built, and most of them are still going strong!

FINISHING TOUCH comes with Mainsail, Jib and Spinnaker in good condition, plus a few extra older sails, spinnaker pole and all gear and rigging needed to sail the boat.

This is well cared for Zodiac inflatable - Model MK1 Touring - with hard floor panels, and adjustable seat, and a set of oars. The floor panels come out so you can roll it up and fit in into the trunk of your car.
