J42 Finesse is the best J/42 available. From stem to stern, Finesse is prepared for your next adventure. Pristinely maintained and custom upgraded since her launch in 1997, J42 Finesse is equally set up for local cruising, bluewater cruising, or racing. The current owners have used her for all.
Recently the Lyman-Morse electronics department completely removed the old Raymarine system and upgraded her with the B&G Zeus system fully integrated to a NEMA2000 backbone. The on-deck instruments package is thorough and carefully laid out with the experience of this yacht-racing family. The navigation station is complete with everything needed to cruise the coast or take line honors in Bermuda.
Her sail package is extensive. There is a setup for every occasion. For simplified cruising or bluewater racing, you will not need to do any shopping. Doyle sails throughout and for every condition you will encounter. Finesse has many races under her belt, including numerous Bermuda races, winning third in class — twice.
A great attribute of this vessel is that she has always been owned by the same family. A multi-generational sailing and racing family, they know how to care for boats. Finesse has been in the annual care and maintenance of Lyman-Morse since day one. This relationship will allow the next owner to sail in safety and confidence knowing preventative care and top performance was the standard and upgrades were constant.
