2008 J Boats J/122

Stamford, Connecticut


Excellent opportunity to own a well-cared-for 3 cabin/1 head J/122! ZIA has been lightly used as a daysailor since 2017 but has had the benefits of upgraded canvas, electronics and rudder bearings.

Her previous owners have made major investments since 2016 to keep ZIA and her equipment in top condition, including sails, a new sprayed race bottom in 2016, new canvas, new chartplotter and new windlass. See complete listing for details. 

Still in the water and ready to sail away!
