Adios is a fine example of the amazing J/120 design and performance. She has been successfully raced and cruised all over Southern California and Mexico. And when she was launched she was the top professionally prepared J/120.


She is equipped for offshore as well as inshore buoy racing and has both One Design and PHRF optimized sails. Other features unique to Adios are a diesel fueled in line heating system and side mounted fresh water tanks with a transfer pump.

This s an opportunity to own a turn-key and finely tuned racer/cruiser with a history of victories.

It is J/Boats meticulous attention to detail, performance and construction that earned the J/120 the distinction of being CRUISING WORLD magazine's OVERALL BOAT OF THE YEAR and the BEST VALUE in a full-sized cruising boat.  

"Downwind, it's a whole new world with an Asymmetric Spinnaker she'll do 7.2 knots at 150 degrees true wind angle in 10 knots of wind with a VMG of 6.3. Other cruisers might keep up if they used an engine. To jibe, simply let off one sheet and pull in the other. It's easier and  safer. One comer of the spinnaker (the "tack") is always secure to the bowsprit, eliminating wild oscillations. The center-of-effort is located further forward and lower. Meaning balanced, "finger-tip" control rather than "white knuckled" round-up broaches. The asymmetric's greater power drives the apparent wind 30-50 degrees forward of the true wind angle. In light air and lumpy seas, the sail's greater area acts as a stabilizer. Deep sailing angles (165 degrees True Wind Angle) can be achieved by easing the sheet to project the luff to windward - as if it were pulled aft by a spinnaker pole".
