1986 J Boats 28 Cruiser Sailboat in Mooresville, North Carolina

Stock #119456

A true American success story is nothing better than the story of the J of Johnstones and their highly respected built racer/cruisers from Newport, Rhode Island. The J/28 was designed to be easily handled by two sitting in the aft cockpit sailing windward in 20 knots of wind, making the J/28 one of the fastest and most stable 28 foot cruisers with a solid 3000 lb keel.

The J/28 has a full width laminated structural bulkhead with which is taped on both sides to the hull and deck. The bulkhead also anchors shroud chainplates. The keel is bolted and epoxy bonded to a fiberglass sump. The hull to deck is bolted on 4 inch centers. The built contributes to the high performance.

J Boats are loved for the blister resistant vinylester resin in the hull and the insulating properties of Conatourkore construction providing a cabin that stays warm and insulated for a great night's sleep on the water.

There are six opening ports and three overhead opening hatches providing great cross ventilation making summer days, cool days out of the sun.

Smart is the design of the two berths comfortable at amidships with space to stretch. The port settee berth converts to a 43" wide double, using backrest cushions as fillers. The forward V-berth cabin is almost 6 ft wide at the head with plenty of space for ventilation. Behind the main settee berths are storage areas for duffels, bedrolls, and pillows. A fully enclosed head is available for privacy.

Lots of light and ability to move air throughout the cabin from portholes and hatches. Small galley with beautiful woodwork brings in the warmth of Americana and a table to enjoy dinners with a companion.

The cockpit was mirrored from the J/40 with a complete 40 inch destroyer wheel, foot supports, padded horseshoe ring seat, instrument pods and with comfort in mind.

This particular J 28 offers all the quality and efficiencies that J Boats are so famous for...according to her seller this 1986 sports

- 6 ' headroom
- air conditioning (just reworked)
- hot water (new)
- head (new)
- Two-cycle 18hp Yanmar Diesel that runs perfect (per the seller: rebuilt, along w/drivetrain, less than 50 hours ago)
- brand new headsail roller furling
- new running rigging
- new bimini
- New pumps throughout, etc.

Seller states:

"3 years ago, This entire vessel was gone over from bow to stern while on the hard.

She is Absolutely is in turn-key, near perfect condition. Her two sails are in great cruising condition and would work ok for racing."

She has rigging, but no spinnaker included.

Information On Condition

Besides a little staining on the vinyl around the top of the cabin, the interior of this J/28 was overall in excellent condition.

The exterior could use a good scrub. All deck gear looked to be in good and working order, including lines, tackle, and rigging.
