J Boats makes the ultimate fast cruiser.  Heron has proven this with a 2nd place finish in Class A of the Marion to Bermuda race as well as many miles of cruising between Canada and Grenada. The blue hull and sleek lines make Heron a head-turner, both at anchor and under sail - especially when flying her starred spinnaker.  Her length-to-beam ratio, efficient keel, and tall, carbon rig, along with quality sails, electric primary winches, carbon wheel and custom rudder bearings make Heron sea-kindly and light on the helm. The owner worked with the factory on numerous improvements, to both sailing systems and interior appointments to make this boat one-of-a-kind.

The cherry interior is gorgeous. It is warm, inviting and well laid out for ease of living.  With the galley and head close to the companionway for easy access to and from the cockpit, 2 aft cabins, comfortable salon, a cozy navigation station and private owner's suite forward, the boat is well appointed for the live-aboard lifestyle of a couple, a family out cruising or a crew on a long distance race.  

Heron has the following:

  • Yanmar 4JH3-HTE 100HP engine
  • Fisher Panda 8KW generator
  • Sea Recovery Watermaker
  • Carbon mast and boom
  • Hydraulic backstay and vang
  • Carbon wheel
  • Raymarine ST7001 Autopilot
  • Raymarine RL80CRC chartplotter/radar
  • Raymarine Instrument package (various)
  • MarineAir Aircon/Heat
  • Espar Diesel cabin heater
  • SeaFrost cold plate refrigeration
  • Feathering prop with line cutter
  • Electric primary winches
  • Bottom stripped and barrier coated (2017)
  • Large sail inventory (see descriptions)
  • Winslow 10-pax Liferaft w/ EPIRB and watermaker
  • Fixed ports in the hull, salon and aft cabins for additional light
  • Numerous custom interior adaptations
  • .... and much more - see 'Descriptions'

Heron is a highly refined cruising machine, with the looks and performance to delight the most demanding sailor! 


Prospective owners of boats of this era will probably be aware of the gelcoat crazing common in the industry. Heron did not escape the issue, which is NOT structural. The owner has had extensive testing done to verify that the gelcoat crazing is a cosmetic issue; it has no impact on the performance or safety of the boat.
