Overview

"J/44 was inspired by an analysis of the 1988 Newport to Bermuda Race which determined that dual-purpose racer/cruisers between 41 and 45 feet were the most popular offshore type and size. Since introduction, J/44 has become the most successful large, offshore American yacht design ever, with a total of 67 boats launched. Owners in 14 countries have amassed an enviable record of ocean passages, regatta wins and logged numerous cruising adventures. They get together for owner-steered, one design events on both coasts in the and on the Great Lakes." ~J/Boats

Box of Frogs (ex-Stolen Hour) is hull number 27 of the popular J/44 production run. Cruised extensively this yacht is a proven and capable blue water cruiser. In need of a new paint job and a minor refit, this yacht is priced with this in mind. The owner is motivated to sell but intends to move forward with a paint job and minor refit in the fall when the ask price will be increased to be inline with current market value. This is a good opportunity to buy below market value and have the choices to make this yacht your own. This is an amazing yacht with great pedigree at a fantastic price. 

Superior design and construction mean better performance in the most demanding offshore conditions. J/44s won the 1991 Fastnet Race (IMS Overall) and the 1992 Sydney-Hobart (IMS-1). Five J/44s beat all Swan 48' -61' upwind in a rough race to Bermuda in 1990.  

J/44s slide through waves with little pitch and roll, responding effortlessly to your touch on the wheel. These superb sailing and handling qualities are different from traditional cruising and IOR / IMS "rule" boats in two very important ways:

J/44s have a balanced hull design with a long waterline relative to beam (L/B) providing directional stability in large waves - not compromised by need for a better rating or the added wetted surface of long keels and skegs, and J/44s have a low center of gravity and low moments of inertia - achieved with hand-laid Baltek-cored hull & deck construction and a beautifully engineered Hall rig. J/44s sail well in the extremes: downwind in light air and upwind in a blow. This means more sailing, less motoring and safe passages.

An ABS bronze plaque certifies each J/44 to be built under independent survey to +A1 classification, the highest possible for offshore yacht service.

Interior

Sailing World's 1990 'Overall Boat of the Year' revived the look of classic American cruising yacht interiors. Styling is light and open, clean and functional. The security and layout of her J/Galley has also become the standard for offshore cruising design. Visibility and ventilation are exceptional at anchor and at sea, making it possible to live-aboard for long periods without the sense of confinement usually experienced on cruising designs under 50 feet in length. The interior layout includes an owner cabin forward with private head entrance, main cabin with two standard pilot berths and settee berths with large drawer storage outboard amidships, a large navigation station opposite the galley, an aft starboard quarter-cabin and an aft 'walk-through' port head.

Galley

J-shaped galley is positioned forward to port of the companionway steps and centrally located. The galley features:

  • Force 10 range 3 burner stove with oven & broiler
  • Seafrost 12v Tradewinds DC system w/thermostat control & multiple speed control
