El Ocaso has been living in the Caribbean for the last 10 years or so and is very well known on the Caribbean spring race circuit, with many wins in the competitive 40’ class.
Typically only in the water between March – May each year and then laid up ashore for the other 9 months, she has been kept in very good condition.
These timeless J/122's are still super competitive across almost all rating rules and remain one of the best all round, cruser-racers on the market today.
An interesting opportunity to also take over a lengthy charter client list at the same time, with healthy returns available.
