I can relate to that sentiment. I had a stripped out balls to the wall racer. It was a J/90, loved that boat as a purist. My wife came one time, declared it not a dual use boat. I scared many on that boat with violent wipe outs and seriously hurt at least one crew. I need a boat that has a greater range of use.[
If the only thing you care about is a stripped out balls to the wall handicap racer, no, the J/111 isn't a boat for you. If you're like most buyers in this size range, you foster some hope for some dual use, with racing as your primary focus, you should look at this boat.
