The new J-Dream is a J111, arrived yesterday, pictures on owners facebook as of last night. The UK has had one boat a month since European production began. As my realtive sh1tter is at HYS I have seen 3 of them come in / get comissioned.

Arabella (US built boat) now for sale, owner has ordered another

Schmoking Joe

Jenga (agent's boat bought for stock, now for sale)

Munkenbeck and Partners

J-Dream

Plus I know of the Dutch boat which did the Fatsnet 2 handed and Stephane's in Pornic (recent recruit to SA and this thread)

Cool. But (unfortunately) #18 isn't Blur. We're still racing the 109.
I was "trying" to keep track of all the J-111 hulls & owners (finally threw in the towel). As we have #17 in SF, I recall (originally) you were going to get #18 but decided to keep your J109 "BLUR" for furhter expolits ;0)). BTW your new CarbonNautica wheel looks great! Not sure who filled the slot...but wasn't J 111 #18 the first J111 hull to be built in Europe?

I'm not really sure why the European built boats have their own numbers starting from #1? Or is that just on http://www.lejouet.eu/?

International #18 was the first to be built in Europe and it seemes it went to Switzerland.

A couple af people up here in Scandinavia are interested in 111 so we'll see what happens...

Hmmm. Just went out the the Lejouet site...the boat KAIROS is listed as hull #1 (first European produced J-111) and appears to be in Switzerland in alignment with your comment. With respeoct to the nunmbering convention, I might speculate that the European built boats would have their own Europe specific serial/ hull numbers and not be coordinating with the US Mfg entity. With this said BLUR is listed on the site with #18 so Lejouet may be pulling from multiple data sources to access and publish info...

Great to hear about J-111 intetrest in Scandinavia. Are you still considering one in the future?

Absolutely. Just need to sell the 109 :eek:

No real hurry since we're really up to speed and everything is in perfect shape. So I guess we'll have to race it real hard next season to get the price down...
