2004 J Boats J/133

location icon Westbrook, Connecticut
Year 2004
Length 43 ft

The J/133 is the epitome of the performance cruiser.  In traditional J Boat fashion, the heart of the J/133 is her ability to be sailed easily with a limited number of crew.  The hull is easily driven with a narrow beam and long waterline, which offer a comfortable ride in any sea.  Her large mainsail-driven sail plan offers fingertip control with minimal sail handling through the use of a smaller head sail than standard boats of her size.  The asymmetrical spinnaker is easily managed through the use of the retractable bowsprit, which places the sail well out in front of the bow to allow for easy jibes and more control in higher breeze. Since there is no spinnaker pole to move from side to side, all maneuvers can be safely and easily managed from the security of the cockpit.  Below you will find they put as much thought into the design of the interior as they did on her sailing characteristics. 

This J/133 is offered for sale by her original owner.  She is in excellent condition, has been well cared for, and has been used only for coastal cruising and very limited racing. This beautiful boat is the one chosen by J boats for their photo shoot which is still on their website today.
