The Quickstep 24 was designed by Ted Brewer as a safe,stable and trailerable family day-sailor / over-nighter with good sailing performance and more than a touch of classic elegance.
New to the market RUBY is in very good condition and as a 1991 boat RUBY is the most recent / youngest Quickstep 24 available anywhere.
Now included with sale is a new (July 2019) Yamaha 9.9 hp, 4-stroke outboard moror with new fuel tank and fuel hose.
