FJ Dinghies Surplus Sale

Flying Juniors (a.k.a. FJs) are the most popular double-handed boat in high school and college sailing programs in the U.S. These eight collegiate-style FJs (no spinnaker/no trapeze) are stable, comfortable, and simply rigged with just a main sail and jib, with sliding jib cars. Manufactured by Laser Performance and first sailed in spring 2014, Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District has owned these boats since new.

They show typical wear and tear from program use and have been actively raced, well-maintained, and stored indoors during the off-season. These boats are turn-key ready for personal use or for a parks, club, high school, or collegiate sailing program.
