Great Value West Coast Racer Cruiser

Recommended Posts

I rather like them. No deal-breaker bad sailing habits. Nice enough interior for family or even 2-couple weekending. Or a week in the San Juans. I myself have considered one...


They are 20 years old now so depending on how well it's been cared for, there are a lot of systems coming online for repair, replacement, renovation, etc. I've seen the white interior laminate starting to peel or bubble. Standing rigging OK? Just inspect it well.

Check the keel sumps really carefully for stress fracturing. Not the keel to sump joint, but the sump radius to hull area.  Most of the earlier J-120's have been repaired.   But, I was called in to survey one that slipped through about six years ago.  I am sure there are more out there. Reportedly this area was re-engineered post number 50 or so. But, Caveat Emptor!
