This J/120 is ready to sail away. Many J/120's of this vintage will not have the extensive options that "Blue Chip" was factory ordered with.

J/120 Beautiful Wood Interior!

The gorgeous BlueChip is now available....one of the very few J120's in the U.S. that has the full cherry wood interior. This treatment (initially a $30,000 factory option) provides an aura of elegance that is simply not available in most performance yachts. As well, in addition to adding many new features, the owner has completely refitted the boat back to bristol condition including replacing most of the rod rigging, repainting all spars and topsides, new all grip deck surfaces, replacing all running rigging, adding a reverse cycle heating and air conditioning system, a stereo system throughout, a strong track luff system for the main, a custom built stack pack (Quantum Sails), a fully battened main sail, a helm bimini, and much more. To our knowledge, there is not presently a comparable J120 in the U.S. • Exceptional performance and construction earned the J/120 model the distinction of being CRUISING WORLD magazines OVERALL BOAT OF THE YEAR and the BEST VALUE in a full sized Cruising boat.* • Downwind, it’s a new world with an asymmetric spinnaker she’ll do 7.2 knots at 150 degree true wind angle in 10 knots of wind with a VMG of 6.3. Other cruisers might keep up if they used an engine. To jibe, simply let off one sheet and pull in the other. It’s easier and safer. The tack is secured to the bow sprit, eliminating wild oscillations. The center of effort is located forward and lower, providing a stable and balanced ride. Owner's total investment in this boat is in excess of $260,000, and to our knowledge, there is not a comparable J120 in the U.S. Please contact me at [email protected] 512.423.2179
