The J/105 is another example of J-Boats' proven philosophy that simple, well conceived, and well constructed boats will succeed. After producing more than 680 boats since 1991, this remains one of the company's most popular models.
The appeal of the J105 is that it not only does more than one thing, it does many things and does them very well. Desire one design racing? The Chicago to Mackinac race regularly attracts 300 plus boats and the largest one design section in this years race was the J105 with 20 boats entered. This is not just a regional one design, as large fleets are found on both sides of the country, from San Francisco to the East Coast.
If you desire to head out with family and friends and enjoy a quiet day sail, without needing a large crew just to leave the dock? The J105 can do it with things like roller furling, wheel steering, self tailing winches and main sheet accessible from helm. With the added bonus of the Asymmetric spinnaker and retractable carbon pole, performance doesn't have to be left at the dock, just because there are only 2-3 of you sailing.
With a galley, head and accommodations for 4, the boat can be cruised too, although headroom may be an issue. With little exterior woodwork, you can spend your days sailing, instead of sanding and varnishing, another big benefit.
Due to excessive water saturation and possible delamination, the hull will likely require a complete rebuild.
This boat represents a way to join this successful class for a small fraction of what a newer boat would run. Come see her today and begin making your sailing dream a reality. All offers will be considered.
