"No sails are included with this specifciation as the owner is keeping them for his next J/111"

so, he's selling a one year old boat, to get a new new one, but keeping the sails?

what's wrong with the current boat?

i could see keeping the boat, and buying new sails...

I have heard about some build issues already developing...anyone with a boat want to provide first hand thoughts on that?

They are coming to Key West and it costs more to ship a boat both ways from the UK than the depreciation. They have had a successful season finishing 2nd in RORC Overall for 2011. She was at Southampton Boat Show and looked good. She certainly attracted the crowds attention.

I own hull #8, apart from some non-build-related teething pains it's a completely solid boat.

The owner is buying another new J111. This boat is US built so doesn't have the European spec like headlining and oven etc. My guess is he wants to upgrade to that spec. Also as a "lead buyer" I am sure he got that boat and his next one at a good price.

crashtest - I've bought two brand new and one used J-boat and there has never been a whiff of any build issue. I've looked over 3 J111's inc this one and they all looked very nicely put together.

I own #4, and boat has been solid. Agree with the teething issues, but I know of no reason why a more recent hull would have advantages over ours.

Mirror RagBag's comments. We have hull #17 here in SF Bay along with RagBag's #4. Some minor teething issues that were proactively addressed by J and our local dealer. We have yet to go as fast as RagBag...;0)) and #4 has many ocean miles and racing success under her belt.

Only major recall / problem was with the turnbuckles, which the manufacturer replaced.

Other issues were cosmetic.

and as well as doing Key West the owner might be spending more time in US as well, so why keep a boat in UK doing nothing and have 2 boats?

look at it the other way......what an endorsement to order one more, when you you still have your original.
