About this J Boats J/88


The nice people at J-Boats say "Sailing Comfort with Speed to Burn ... the J/88 truly hits the sweet-spot in J Boats' new generation of performance sprit boats. This mid-sized 29' (8.8m) family speedster is fast, fun and stable with the security and comfort of a sit-in cockpit, inboard diesel, overnighting interior and onboard head".

"Jumuno" is in very good order and has been continuously update by the current owner.... road legal road trailer, new unused North Sails, cabin heating, autopilot with ram .... the list goes on. This yacht is ready to go at the end of June 2021.

It’s interesting with the J88........in a way it’s the most fun boat I’ve ever owned......more a big dingy than yacht.  Absolute weapon in the light as well.

I'll miss sailing her, which has been a pure joy, but I now need a larger yacht for more offshore yacht racing.
