  • Mamaroneck, NY, US

Yacht price :



A TRULY turn-key J44 that is fully prepared for the 2016 Newport Bermuda Race. The J-44 was the first class to be given its own One Design start for Bermuda, with an average of 8 boats racing in the class over the last 3 events. 

Every system on this 44 has been upgraded since her current owners purchased her in 2012. These upgrades are thoroughly described in the “Full Specifications” section of this listing and include electronics, standing rigging, running rigging, sails, deck hardware, interior/exterior cosmetics and more. Countless upgrades were also made to enhance the 44’s usability as a cruising vessel.

She has been stored indoors each winter for the last 15 years and shows much newer than her age. With over $150k recently invested in upgrades, she represents one of the best values on the market for the buyer looking to race to Bermuda or cruise around the world.
