1989 J Boats J/44 J44

Bridgeport, Connecticut

$159,000

One of the most successful J/44's on the water, with 8 North American Championships as Challenge IV. 

Hull #2 of the classic J/44 has undergone a significant refit including a full inspection of the standing rigging (with replacement rod & fitting where necessary) and complete upgrade of all running rigging and rope clutches by Sound Rigging of Essex CT.

Interior and exterior condition is above average, a recent survey has been performed and she is ready to go racing or fast cruising. A fantastic value for a thoroughbred racing yacht.
