J Boats J35 - Show Down - $49,000

Showdown is a J-35 listed that is now exclusively for sale with YOTI on Pittwater. 

Built by Bashford Boats in Nowra in 1992, Showdown until very recently was owned by her original owner. The J-35 has proved to be one of the world's most successful production racing yachts - ever. 

J-Boats are renowned for their slippery curves and quick turn of speed on the water. Since their introduction, the J35 has maintained a worldwide reputation on the race course including blue water events such as the Hobart and Transatlantic races. 

The large open plan cockpit primarily designed for racing also makes the boat great for day sailing and equally would suit those willing to cruise given the layout down below. 

Showdown is first and foremost a racing boat; however there is a 'V' berth forward with two comfortable settee berths aft of the main bulkhead in the saloon, with an optional fold up table between them. A modest galley with a two-burner Metho stove and sink lies to port with an ice box with chart table top to STBD with more sleeping quarter berths aft. 

Showdown's sail wardrobe includes a Norths 3DL main, spare / delivery main, two spinnakers, four headsails and storm sails. Showdown is powered by a Yanmar 30 Hp diesel with folding propeller. The hull was recently wrapped in a removable vinyl marine wrap. 

This is a well cared for J-35 in impressive condition.
