Club Racing, One Design, Day-sailing and learning. 4 things that Rod Johnstone thought about in 1989 when he designed this sleek and powerful 15 ft sailboat.
On Sundays, you will appreciate her 135 sq ft of sail area, Harken Deck Hardware and uncluttered deck layout. On Mondays, her 5'8 beam and steady hull will ensure a dry and docile ride for you and up to 3 passengers. And on Fridays? Fridays will see you racing gunnel to gunnel with other identical JY15 designs in One Design Racing that can only be described as an incredibly level playing field (more class info here: http://jyca.org/).
This boat has just been through a mild refit which saw new deck lines and rudder resurfacing as well as a thorough cleaning. She comes with 2 sets of class legal North Sails with one set configured for practice use (pictured on her mast) and another set for regatta use. Sails retail for $750/set. She also has upgraded standing rigging with the newer reinforced chain-plates.
For JY15 OD racing or a Portsmouth campaign, 8 lives is the perfect starter boat. Newer, well equipped and in excellent condition.
Looking to sell before winter storage is required. Now is the time to see her, covers off, ready to sail.
She is offered for $1450 or best offer, parts, upgrades and accessories are worth that alone.
Will consider trade for decent lightning or older J24 (this package is worth much more than the asking).
She does not include a trailer or dolly but something can be arranged.
