San Juan 21 “Quasar”

We have a San Juan 21 swing-keel sloop for rent, these are lively boats to sail — great for daysails on Boothbay Harbor and out around Squirrel Island!

Afternoon Sail

“QUASAR” has been in the Thorpe family from the beginning (1973), and we are now pleased to be able to share her with you.

The San Juan 21 class is still actively raced as a one-design fleet in several locations around the country, with a devoted following.

Quasar is equipped with a recent mainsail and jib (built for us by Pope Sails and Rigging in Rockland), life jackets, flotation cushions, fenders, docklines, paddle, navigational chart and compass, and a handheld VHF radio, and all other USCG required safety equipment. Both boats are powered with auxiliary outboard engines.

The San Juan 21’s have a maximum capacity of 4 adults.

Our sailboats are available to experienced sailors subject to our Rental Agreement and Boat Rental Check Out. The navigation area is limited to Boothbay Harbor, Linekin Bay, and Booth Bay (see Chart)
