The Moore 24: Undoubtedly a Classic

America's first production line ULDB was a Moore 24. Like any classic, she has stood the test of time. After ten years she still dominates every kind of winners list. She can surf at excess of 20 knots or slide nimbly across the water pushed by a faint breeze. She handles superbly in all conditions and is continually cited

by independent experts for excellence in design, performance and craftsmanship. Undoubtedly, the Moore 24 is a classic.

The Moore 24 emanated from a superior source. She is the culmination of Ron Moore's twenty years of experience in light boat construction. Ron was manufacturing International 5-0-5s before light keel boats were in the water. It's no wonder he was the best prepared to make the transition to light keel boats. His flawless craftsmanship and time tested expertise insures the refined techniques necessary to build a sound light boat. Others may talk long on theory, but excellent craftsmanship and superior design is what insures a seaworthy boat. In 1975, in a now infamous Santa Cruz to Santa Barbara Race, marred by tragedy and serious equipment failures, a Moore 24 finished safe and sound hours before any competitors.

The Moore 24 is a study in polished functional simplicity. She appeals to the racer or the cruiser. The hull 's v-shape provides a comfortable , high performance ride, the rig is expertly set up and made from the best products on the market.In fact some of the hardware is custom made because the best isn't good enough. Typical of a Moore 24 are the unique race/cruise berths designed to accommodate the racer as well as the cruiser. An experienced sailor will marvel at the outstanding performance, while the inexperience sailor will be struck with the ease of mastering a Moore 24. Ron Moore invites you to experience excellence. Try a Moore 24 and see for yourself.
