New to the market this J32 is a one owner boat that has been lightly sailed by a knowlegable owner. The addition of an upgraded electric Lewmar winch improves single handing on an already easy handling boat.The J32 is a comfortable cruiser/racer from a quality builder, her shoal draft keel makes her ideal for Florida/Bahamas cruising.

Much thought has gone into the cruising details and it's easy to see that this boat was designed by and for sailors. Stepping below, the initial sensation is that of being aboard a 40 footer. Perhaps it is the 6'3" headroom, large ports, and overhead hatches that create J-32's sense of roominess and comfort below. The L-shaped galley to starboard is uncompromised in detail, and very workable with a molded, deep sink integral to a Granicoat counter top. It includes hot & cold pressure water, large well insulated icebox, 2-burner stainless Force-10 LPG range, and dedicated trash storage with flip lid access. The navigation table is proper size with hinged-top lid, large drawer, tool cabinet, and complete DC electrical center. Walking forward one passes through an oval opening in a substantial, structural bulkhead supporting the shroud chainplates. The very comfortable and roomy double V-berth stateroom also has 6'3" standing headroom with 2-drawer bureau, vanity with sink and mirror, and a hanging locker large enough to store a permanent "onboard" wardrobe. All this with additional storage for as many as four duffel bags under the berth. The head - shower - wet hanging locker compartment aft to port is a proven winner, copied from the more than 100 J-40s and J-42s built. The one-piece molded unit incorporates a shower sump with dedicated pump and strainer system. Starboard aft is an immense storage locker with access both from the cockpit and by door through the galley. Exceptional ventilation is provided throughout by two dorade intakes, as many as eight opening ports, three deck hatches, and the large dodger-protected companionway hatch which, with autopilot, functions as a soft-topped pilot house when passage-making in bad weather. Sailing a J-32 is easy for one person thanks to superb steering response and control, a common sense sailplan, and a cockpit - deck designed for sailors. When a gust of wind hits the J-32, the first sensation is one of acceleration forward rather than heeling over. Slicing through waves there is little fuss and very little of the pitch and roll often accepted as a rigor of traditional cruising. J-32 balances and sails efficiently with mainsail only. Sailing upwind in this configuration, J-32 is faster than many cruisers using both main and large genoa combined. The mainsail is the easiest of any sail to operate. So, there is no need to reef when it blows 25 kts; simply roll up the small 100% jib. That's all you need for cruising. No more wrestling with large headsails or endless winch grinding. Tacking is effortless. The J-32 responds confidently with a 40" diameter Edson Destroyer wheel and large balanced rudder. She has fingertip control, confident tracking under sail, and good response in tight quarters; 360 degree turns are possible within one boat length. This predictable maneuverability makes sailing into congested harbors, tacking through narrow channels, or negotiating the occasional fuel dock a snap. Good handling also comes from undistorted hull lines, advanced construction techniques, and superior stability. The J-32 is built with TPI's patented SCRIMP process. This system pulls triple the normal vacuum bagging levels to draw air out of cored hull & deck laminates and to get resin into every void, all in a single step. In fact, the entire J-32 keel structural grid cures with the hull as a primary bonded component. The results of award winning SCRIMP technology are high strength, light weight, and void-free hull & deck laminates far superior to hand lay-up or chopper gun construction. The weight saved is then added back to the bottom of the keel in the form of a lead bulb, shaped as an inverted wedge with a tapered tail aft. This is why J-32's center of gravity (CG) is so much lower than cruisers built with outdated technology and design. Other benefits of TPI construction include a 10 year owner transferable hull blister warranty and knowledge of J-Boat resale value. So superior in speed is the J-32 under sail that in 10-plus knots of wind many "traditional cruising designs" will be lucky to keep pace with engines on.
