Hull #73 of 77 J/42's produced, "Raven" is an exceptional performance cruiser, easily sailed fast by a couple.... and in excellent condition!
"While classic in profile and layout, J/42 steps into the future when considering structural strength performance, ease-of-handling, stability and sailing comfort. This progress is now available to the cruising sailor in a boat that handles like a 35 footer with the solid feel and motion of a 50 footer." J-Boats
Shoal draft version in turn key condition!
Welcome aboard Raven!
"RAVEN" is a fast sailing comfortable, performance cruiser. This two stateroom two head layout is ideal for couples or families and yet designed to be easily sailed . Her clean easily driven hull means less sail, more speed and the ability to keep sailing long after most cruising boats have given up and turned to the "iron genny". She is truly a cruiser for those who like to sail!
Engine and Mechanicals
"Sailing J/42 is easy for one person, thanks to superb wheel response and a common-sense sail plan. J/42-balances well and sails upwind faster under mainsail (over 6 kts) than some cruisers using both main and large genoa. Since a mainsail is the easiest of any sail to operate there's less need for expert crews and no need to reef when it blows 25 kts. A 100% jib is all one needs for cruising upwind at 7.2 knots. You get an added bonus of better visibility and there's little need for grinding of winches. When you sail a J/42 you soon learn that progress in yacht design and construction makes a big difference in your sailing enjoyment."- J Boats
