The J/160 is J/Boats' signature off shore racer and performance blue water cruiser; delivering speeds of a 60 footer with the ease of handling of a 40 footer. Perfect for California coastal cruising or racing or that long distance cruise you've been dreaming of, with only 35 hulls built, it is a rare moment when a J/160 comes on market.
She has just completed a total rig and boom refit with new paint. A full bottom job last spring including new rudder bearings. She also has a new generator and is ready for her next cruise.
An easily driven hull shape and a very low center of gravity results in noticeable differences in how the J/160 performs compared to any other boat you may have sailed. Less sail is needed, winch loads are reduced, and the constant sail-changing of heavier displacement cruisers is avoided. The need for extra crew to run the yacht is no longer a requirement. This is a boat which 2-3 people can manage without reliance on powerful and heavy electro-mechanical devices. As part of the design brief, the sail plan had to be manageable, versatile and balanced yet powerful enough to stabilize motion in waves for a quantum improvement in sailing comfort at sea.
The live-aboard comfort and styling of the J/160 goes far beyond what you might expect. The interior is spacious, clean in execution, beautifully appointed and exquisitely finished, befitting a proper flagship. Every detail and need has been addressed in terms of provisioning, equipment and storage space for coastal and offshore cruising.
