• This J 121 has been completely refit including the interior, electronics, and electrical system by a J boat certified boat builder and a top electronics vender. • The J/121 is a 40’ offshore speedster that can be day raced or distance sailed by just 5 or fewer crew…. the best short-handed J ever…. capable of winning on any race track while also excelling in daysailing and weekend mode. Here’s a boat, class, and program that redefines sailboat racing as a recreation and shared adventure with friends, reducing the focus on specialization and athletic shortcourse W/L racing. The J/121 fulfills the growing need to simplify life and reconnect with those you really want to sail with on a boat that’s pure magic to sail.
