The J/124 is an unusual yacht on the brokerage market. Conceived in 2005, with a limited production run of 34 yachts over a 2-year period, the J/124 hit the ground running as the largest in a run of daysailer/weekender-style yachts that offered sparkling performance due to their narrow beam, good ballast ratio, and low center of gravity.
The J/124 was replaced by the J/122 to cater more to fully crewed racing performance for competitive sailors, which is a shame because the J/124’s unique selling point (USP) is its outstanding performance and ease of sailing shorthanded.
JOSEPHINE is hull number 10.
JOSEPHINE has been well-maintained, with new standing rigging installed recently, and she has performed admirably in Greek waters as a coastal cruising yacht.
She has an excellent specification for Mediterranean cruising, with a carbon wheel and cockpit bimini. Additionally, she boasts a carbon rig, which provides more righting moment and enhanced performance while also reducing pitch and roll at anchor.
I purchased JOSEPHINE in 2009 from Key Yachting, the UK J Boats dealer, and was her first invoiced owner. Since then, she has seen light cruising along the south coast UK and in Greece and participated in two seasons of racing in the Cornish Offshore Group Sailing League. She is an incredibly enjoyable boat to sail. I am selling her to transition to a boat that offers more extended stay aboard amenities. I will miss her dearly.
