“Atlantic Ave” is a rare example of a never raced J/105. This boat has lived the majority of it’s life along Eggemoggin Reach being used as a daysailer. She shows extremely well for a boat of this age thanks to the maintenance of her “perfectionist” owner.
“Atlantic Ave” offers a new sail inventory, new electronics, and recent bottom job making her turn-key.

Less Demands + Fun = Best Sailing Value
A fun and forgiving performance boat that is easy to sail, the J/105 offers low maintenance with a simple layout, has great performance, a large cockpit, predictable handling characteristics and makes no pretenses of being a distance cruiser or live-aboard. There is less to maintain as all the extra
The cabinetry and weight of things you won’t use aren’t there. So instead of varnishing toe-rails and troubleshooting systems you’ll be enjoying a sail with friends. With less demands placed on you and your crew J105 is more fun to own.
Considering how you will actually use your boat, no other choice of sailboat today makes as much practical sense to own as the J/105. It is simply the best sailing value available and as an added bonus it offers instant access to a whole new network of sailing friends and events throughout the US and Europe.
