1987 J Boats J28

About this Sailboat:

This is one of the finest boats designed by J. It is a performance cruiser. It will move in the lightest of winds and stand up, with the proper reefing, to the heaviest of winds. It was modeled after the J40. It sleeps 5 with a private forward cabin, hanging locker, bulkhead mounted table, head w/shower aft to starboard, L-shaped galley to port, teak cabin sole, Varnished teak interior finish, S/S sink, top-loading ice boax, Origo 2 burner alcohol stove w/oven and hot and cold pressure water. It has a Non-Skid Deck, light & Ventilation provided by 3 deck hatches and 6 opening ports along with screens. The boat has double life lines, a starboard boarding gate and a stern mounted ladder and gate. It is both pretty to look at and sails beautifully. We had it out last week in 12 knt winds and moved along at over 6 knts. I have fixed the boat to make it very easy to single hand. It has a furling, self tacking jib in addtion to a genny. It has a mack pack so the sail can be dropped quickly and zippered up into it’s own cover. The Hull is Dark Blue. The engine starts up every time without a problem. The boat has been winterized every year by professionals. We have owned quite a few boats over the years and this is our favorite. The only reason we are selling is that we purchased a house on a canal which does not have the five foot draw that the boat requires. I know that whoever buys the boat will love it as much as we do.
