Manufacturer Provided Description

From its large carbon wheel to the fine teak joinerwork and Ultra-leather or suede upholstery below, or simply by the smooth, graceful way it slides through the water, the new J/124 is every bit a sailing yacht in the best sense of the word. Yet, J/124s focus on short-handed sailing qualities doesnt preclude many days of offshore coastal sailing. Her narrow beam and low center-of-gravity are hallmarks of seaworthiness. All the important stuff is there: An adequate galley and chart table; the accessible top-loading icebox; 6 feet of headroom; three separate sleeping areas; a dodger for all-weather protection; and a cockpit made secure with 14 high backrests and seats that are long enough to sleep on. The high-tech composite hull evolves from Js that have dominated IRC competition in Europe over the past three years. The Hall Spars mast and ACC rudder are carbon fiber.
