22' or 24' keelboat with a tiller and outboard motor.
The J24 is one of the most popular keelboats for day sailing in the world (5,200 hulls have been built). The sail plan is generous, yet forgiving. This boat goes well in both light and heavier breezes and is easily handled by two people. It is tiller steered as opposed to wheel steered which greatly enhances the boat's reaction time to a person's movement of the tiller. This is of paramount importance when learning how to sail, i.e. the faster a boat reacts to your action, the quicker you will know that what you did was correct.
