The only real problem with the J111 is it's cost. Over 300K (249 not including equip/electronics/sails/tax). I can think of other ways to spend 300K and do some fast racing.
As I was deciding on the J111, I also looked at other boats such as the Archambault 35, C&C115, even a Summit 35. By the time you get it similarly configured (e.g., carbon mast), there wasn't appreciable difference.

So what other ways would you spend $300K other than a used boat?

Are you bringing a J111 to Detroit? I would enjoy having more time to race against the design getting to know it's personality. Good for you on treating yourself to that "new boat smell", one of my favorites.
Well, close to Detroit - Lake Huron. I took deliver last spring, Hull 25 named unplugged. Planning to be down for the NOOD next spring.

Sorry; Detroit Nood Regatta is no more.

Didn't know that. Thanks
 
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)
I know it has been a while; but has ARABELLA been sold? Any details?

Next European hull for spring delivery if ordered now is 68 apparently. No 58 will be at London Boat Show.

Is this accurate ?

25 boats sold/delivered for North America

30-35 boats for Europe

5-10 boats for Asia.

Well 28 was delivered in NA last May, so I would think it is higher than 25.

Aren't the boats being numbered in sequence no matter where they are built/delivered ? ie - Hull 28 might be a US boat, but Hull 27 is a European boat

All the other J models use a worldwide numbering system, numbers are allocated in batches regionally so actual boats delivered can be less than highest hull number sailing but it should be a reasonable guide.

Interesting to me to see Asia quoted above, when I was out in Singapore and following the scene in HK, Thailand and Aus I saw very few J's - the odd 109, a 130 plus quite a few older J24's especially in Japan and Aus. I'd be rather surprised if 5 sales had been made, perhaps 5 hull numbers have been reserved for the Chinese builder of the J80's

if accurate, impressive....60-70 boats in 2 years in this economy at $300K++ is no small feat.

From J UK last week.

 

"One year on and we will be showing Stuart Sharpe’sbeautiful, shiny, sleek and slippery Joli on the Boardwalk at the TulletPrebon London Boat Show in 2012 (thank-you very much Stuart!) and she is hullnumber 58. In fact, if Santa didn’t bring you quite what you wanted this year,the next available hull for a J/111 for Spring delivery is number 68! So that’s61 J/111s sold in twelve months. Astonishing! "

Stephane's excellent list has 25 in North America. Stephane's List

Great Lakes - 10

San Fran - 3

Long Island Sound - 3

Newport / BB - 2

PNW - 1

Texas - 1

SoCal - 1

Eastern Canada - 4
I took a look at Stephane's list, Ragin' and Velocity are based on the Chesapeake (Annapolis), not on the Great Lakes. There's a 3rd 111 sailing out of Annapolis, I don't know the name/hull number off the top of my head but I've seen it around a couple times. I know there's a new hull waiting for a buyer over at Jabin's too, not sure where it'll end up though. Hopefully they'll find another couple buyers around here so we can do some local OD racing!
