Yacht price :




The J/42 is the perfect cruising boat for couples and families who want to cruise with speed, comfort, and safety in all conditions.  J/42 owners report that their boats are faster and more fun to sail when coastal cruising, in off-shore events and during extended blue water cruises.  Because the J/42 performs well in all conditions, including upwind in light air and in strong breeze, J/42 owners sail more and use their engine less.  The speed and comfort of the J/42 means shorter, safer, more enjoyable passage making, a welcome contrast to the long passage times of ordinary cruising boats, which often must resort to motor sailing to reach their destination.

In excellent condition, Bermuda prepped, offshore equipped and ready to go.

Aggressively priced for quick sale!
