A one-owner freshwater J/88 kept with 145 hours on the Yanmar diesel. White hull, black bootstripe, white non-skid, black canvas and charcoal tweed cushions. Her experienced owner has kept her professionally maintained and babied her for 3.5 seasons. She’s been completely stripped to avoid dampness and stored indoors late Oct thru early May every year. She comes equipped with 5 North Sails - 3Di OD main & 3Di OD #1 jib, 3DL OD #2 jib, OD A2 spinnaker & A0/A3 Poly Assym Hybrid on a Karver KF1 furler. Professionally faired bottom with wet sanded Baltoplate over Interprotect 2000. Complete B&G Triton Speed-Depth-Wind system with 3 Triton T41 mast mounted displays and a B&G ZG100 GPS/Compass. Used almost exclusively as a daysailor with less than a dozen races and fewer overnight stays.
“The J/88 is not only comfortable and easy to handle, but her sweet balance, effortless speed and comfort will maximize your sailing fun. J/88 truly hits the sweet-spot in J Boat’s new performance sprit range – large enough to provide the creature comforts of a sit-in open cockpit, inboard diesel, overnighting interior and head; and small enough to be single-point lifted, owner trailered and stored. Design highlights include a high-aspect, non-overlapping sail plan (no genoas) with a light weight carbon fiber mast - deck stepped configuration for easy rigging and tuning as well as for keeping the water out and the main cabin dry. Named "Best Boat Under 30 ft" in SAILING WORLD's Boat of the Year competition. Whether you are going out for a leisurely family sail, club racing or looking to compete - the J/88 is a simple platform that allows you the flexibility to do all that and more. Over 100 J/88's around the world as of 2017.”
