30' J Boats
Photo 1 of 2
Introduced in 1979, they built nearly 550 J/30’s through 1986. Built to race and cruise, the J/30 is a fast and dry sailing vessel that out-sails the average 30 footer and keeps up with 35-40 footers. Her fractional rig and tapered mast allow for easier headsail handling with controls that allow the headsail to perform over a wider range of wind velocities. Ten Seven has been completely refinished on the exterior. The hull has been painted with Awlgrip. The deck was opened up and wet core was replaced and the entire deck was Awlgripped and a new white on white nonskid applied. The teak handrails were replaced with modern SS handrails and the teak toe rails were replaced with the white polycarbonate toe rails and the coaming trim replaced with composite too. New windows were installed and deck hardware was upgraded to modern Harken gear. The bottom has been completely stripped and resealed with an epoxy barrier coat. The keel and rudder were faired and VC17 racing bottom applied. The Headfoil was removed and a new Furlex roller furling system was installed. The mast and boom were painted as well and all new halyards, topping lift and running rigging are new too. This boat rocks. Below, in a beautiful hand-crafted interior, she has 5’11” headroom, sleeping accommodations for 6 (2 in the bow, 2 in the main salon & 2 quarter berths aft) on Navy blue cushions (in great condition). This boat has the optional center table with drop leafs and teak and holly sole. There is a private head, vanity & hanging locker between the forepeak and main cabin and the galley is situated to port at the companionway and across the top loading ice box and combo chart table nav station is dedicated. The cockpit will seat 6 to 8 people. Two early J/30’s survived the dreaded famous Fastnet Race where boats and sailors were lost at sea. One commented after a knockdown and hanging on for 14 hours in extreme conditions, they didn’t take any water in below except for an occasional spray through the louvered companionway board.
