1998 J/120

Shearwater was laid up in Rhode Island and finished in 1998 by J Composites in France. Many prefer the J Composites finish design over the US option. A notable difference on deck is the large anchor locker forward, something many US finished boats do not have, and below the deck, various comfort differences are obvious. Shearwater is currently upgraded, outfitted, and looking beautiful with new topside paint – she is ready to cruise or race in style today.
