Sailing BoatsRacing BoatsJ BoatsJ/105

The J/105 is one of the best boats to come out of the J-Boats stable. Proven to be fast, easy to sail and exciting, they have excelled in short-handed race events as well as fully crewed round the cans. "Fluke IV" has been totally re-furbished. Rigging replaced, up to date B&G electronics, great set of North 3Di sails, new rigging, new engine 120 hours ago.... and the list goes on. She has been equipped with Oceanic racing in mind, so with very few tweaks she will be ready to go!
