Looking for a fast offshore racer, or a very comfortable fast cruiser, that can be sailed singlehanded or shorthanded?
Winner of the 2006 Singlehanded TransPac, Alchera has a proven track record of successful long distance offshore racing and cruising. This one-owner J/120 was custom factory built with modifications specifically for shorthanded operation. Two additional winches accessible from the helm allow for easy tacking and gybing by one person. A redesign of the running rigging allows for the mainsail to be reefed from within the cockpit without having to go forward to the mast. There is also a second watertight compartment in the bow section for even more security against water intrusion in the event of striking a submerged object.
Alchera has a fully loaded nav station including: SSB, Satphone, radar, chartplotter, and AIS. She is also equipped with a Spectra Watermaker for long distance cruising without worrying about water stops! Many more features listed in the specifications.
Alchera has been raced singlehanded to Hawaii 4 times, including winning her class 3 times, first to finish once, and winning overall once. Alchera also spent one year cruising Mexico with a single couple on board. This unique J/120 is well equipped for short handed performance cruising and offshore racing. Check it out.
