Portsmouth Eastward Ho 24, 1978 sailboat for sale

I am selling my 1978 Portsmouth Eastward Ho 24 for $6,500.

  • The boat is in Alamitos Bay (Seal Beach, CA / Long Beach, CA) where the buyer may assume the slip at $320 a month.
  • Very nice location, across the street from the new 2nd and PCH outdoor mall.

  • The boat is 24’ long and has a wide beam of 8.5’ so it is very stable underway.
  • It has a nice deep keep with 3,000lbs of ballast so it is well-constructed for long-distance sailing. In fact, the previous owner sailed it from Washington down through Mexico.
  • For long-distance sailing, it is equipped with a full suite of sails (including a storm jib), self-tacking jib, windvane self-steering system (worth $2,000+ alone), and reefing lines for the mainsail. All lines lead into the cockpit. Inside, it has two settees that can be turned into a full-size birth to port and two bunk beds on the starboard side. There’s a porta potty up front with a hanging locker and sail storage. The inside of every cabinet has been painted with Bilgecoat so that the boat is clean.
  • In the galley and upon first entering into the cabin there is 6’3” of headroom! Almost as much as a pilothouse in this 24’ boat. It’s a very unique feature that makes the boat seem much, much larger than it actually is without the cost and/or maintenance associated with a larger boat.
  • The rigging is in good shape. The sails are in good shape. The Volvo MD7A is original, but it has a rebuilt exhaust system from this last season and a fresh oil change. Two new batteries with a new solar charger have also been installed in the last year. Lots of small new hardware updates such as the line clutches on the cabin top. Plenty of winches where you need them, all in good shape. Anchor and plenty of rode. VHF radio included. Depth finder is installed.
  • The entire interior and deck have been painted. Two-part epoxy paint was used inside and Awlgrip was used on the deck. Non-skid has also been redone with Kiwigrip. The small bit of wood on the exterior has been varnished. Interior seats have been recovered with brand new grey vinyl. Sink and stove have been polished clean. There’s also all sorts of teak storage accessories I haven’t installed, but I removed and varnished. New owner can choose where they want to install. Everything looks great. There are also plenty of years left on the sail covers.
  • There are plenty of small cosmetic things and quirks the boat has being a 1978. The only bigger things I would address is bottom paint and topside paint to really make this boat shine. Mechanically, the engine is very reliable, but older. Never personally had a problem with it.
  • This is a boat that is in great shape. It’s a real classic, unique looking yacht. So much hard work has already been done and with just a little more, this boat could be taking one or two people anywhere in the world safely.
  • I will disclose everything I know about the boat to a potential buyer. I have nothing to hide on it and really want it to go to a good owner. It’s hard for me to sell it!

    Comes with an 8’ Avon Dinghy.
