Up for grabs is my 1970 Storfidra 25 , full keel
, double ended cruising sailboat
, converted to a Chinese Junk Rig
with an Aluminum
. Many people expressed interest in putting her back to her sloop
configuration …so , I decided to keep the junk mast
and rig for my new boat
I am selling the boat
WITHOUT the junk rig
mast and sail in the photos
. She will need a new mast , rigging
…hence the very low price
She is located in Marina Del Rey , Ca.
I bought her about a year and a half ago , with the intent of converting her to a junk rig. I've been obsessed with the ease of handling , simplicity and pure beauty of the Junk Rig for years.
is about 80% finished (meaning ready to sail!). I hate "quitting a horse mid stream" , but , just got an offer I couldn't refuse on another boat and can't have two. So … I am selling her at a very reduced price
. It is my hope that she can help fulfill the cruising dreams of someone out there… maybe someone with more heart than money
. 2 weeks of work
and a few hundred bucks …and you are sailing…. a pretty amazing sailboat.
Storfidra 25's are very heavily overbuilt in Sweden
by the same company that makes boats for the Swedish Navy
. They very rarely come up for sale
in The United States and are usually in the $25-30K range when they do … a testament to the quality of build. Truly a "go anywhere boat"
Imagine a miniature Westsail 32 … or more likely … a double ended Contessa 26.
In my opinion , she is quite possibly the perfect 1 person (or 2 very close) cruising vessel … comfortable , built like a tank , and easy to sail, maneuver , and because of her size , easy on the bank account to maintain and moor.

If you are considering converting the boat back to a sloop
Any mast , boom and sails
from a number of boats : Catalina
27 , Newport
etc etc …would work
fine …and can be found very cheap
The boat is located in Marina Del Rey , Ca. in a transferable slip. Slip fees
are roughly $300. per month. They will say the don't allow liveaboards …but …a LOT of people live aboard their boats.
The giveaway price is $2999. Feel free to ask any and all questions …and thanks for looking!
I also have a very good running Bukh
that will fit her perfectly …selling separately for $1000.
