After many months of considering competitive 40’ cruiser-racers, my wife and I settled on the J/122 as having the all-round ability to suit our needs. Ray Entwistle from J/Boats Australia in Sydney found us just the boat and we took possession of Javelin in April 2017. The after-purchase service we have received from Ray and Sandra has been a breath of fresh air in an industry where all too may brokers and trades-people fail to deliver. They really do go out of their way to ensure all our needs are met, and then some.
Ray and Sandra are passionate about their sailing and it shows on the water, where they have taken time out of their busy schedule to help us set up the boat to get the most out of racing. Similarly, off the water they have sourced hard-to-get items that we wanted to replace to bring the boat back to as-new condition.
I highly recommend both Ray and Sandra from J/Boats Australia and J/Boats in general. The build quality of the J/122 exceeds that of other manufacturers of similar sized yachts. The boat is thoughtfully designed and beautifully fit out, making the boat competitive on the race-course and delight to cruise. I’d be happy to discuss the J/122 with any potential purchasers.
