Yacht price :



Commissioned in 1992, J/40 #79 is now for sale by her original owner. Exceptionally clean & meticulously maintained. Key features include the desirable aft-facing nav station, luxurious full teak interior and deep keel. Well equipped & rigged for short-handed offshore & fast coastal cruising. Priced significantly below the J/42, which is the same as the J/40 but with an extended stern & lazarette.

It's no wonder the J/40 was voted "Sailing World" magazine's "Boat of the Year" just 4 months after launching.
