2011 J Boats J/97

The J/97 was first launched in 2009 and offers the best accommodation in a 30 foot J with
standing headroom, private owners cabin and private heads aft. A genuine dual role
boat with a fantastic record under IRC coupled with super easy handling for the short handed
sailor. A true performance sailing yacht the J/97 will keep you on your toes!

‘InJenious’ is a 2011 example and comes to the market with a host of One Sails and North Sails from 2017 as well as a 2022 One Sails Spinnaker. The VHF and chartplotter were upgraded in 2021 and the head and cooker replaced in 2022 no expense has been spared on keeping ‘InJenious’ well maintained. Price to performance ratio this J/97 will be sure to have you and your crew smiling, whilst delivering a strong competition.
