2005 J Boats J/109



Melody is a well cared for, lightly raced J 109 in excellent condition. She is ready for a seasons of enjoyment whether it be cruising, Wednesday night racing or the J 109 one design racing.

The J/109 is more than a high-performance boat with cruiser-friendly add-ons; it’s a well-conceived, well-executed dual-purpose boat that comes close to being all things to all sailors. Fast, easy to handle, stable, and spacious, the J/109 can serve as a competitive racer, comfortable cruiser, shorthanded daysailer, and a family weekender.

The accommodations plan includes a proper nav station with a seat back and a good-size table. Cabin berths and stowage areas are well sized, the L-shaped galley is small but efficient, and the saloon would be a comfortable place to hang out in on a rainy day. Engine access is a bit tight, and the bilge has a rather shallow sump, but handholds, ventilation, lighting, the electrical system, and the fit and finish of the varnished cherry interior and vinyl hull liner all received high marks.  (Sail Magazine)
