This evergreen Rod Johnstone designed J39 is a true J Boat classic with many race wins to her credit. A dream to sail and very competitive under IRC (2013 rating is 1.025) this is a lot of cruiser/racer for the buck! "Xtreme" looks stunning in dark blue and is a well sorted boat that awaits a new jockey to take her on to more victories and fast cruising trips.

PART-EXCHANGES against a smaller cruiser/racer can be considered.
