One owner! The J/44 is the most successful large, offshore American yacht design ever with a total of 67 boats launched. Owners in 14 countries have amassed an enviable record of regatta wins, ocean passages, and cruising adventures.
The J/44 slides through waves with very little pitch and roll. They respond effortlessly to your touch on the wheel. A balanced hull design with a long waterline relative to beam provides directional stability. The J/44 also has a low center of gravity and low moments of inertia making these yachts perform exceptionally well in the extremes: downwind in light air and upwind in a blow. That means more wins at your local regatta plus less motoring and safe passages while cruising.
The J/44 was Sailing World's 1990 "Overall Boat of the Year" and revived the classic look of American cruising yacht interiors. This particular example features a light, open, clean and functional three-cabin, one head "Plan A" layout. Visibility and ventilation are exceptional making it possible to comfortably live aboard for extended periods.
"Phantom" is hull #45. She has been lovingly cared for by her original owners. Professionally maintained by Grayson Marine who knows this yacht's complete maintenance history and operation. She has undergone several upgrades including new B & G electronics with expedition racing software 2016, new rod standing rigging 2016, new running rigging 2016, bottom faired 2016, nautical blue LPU topsides 2016, new hatches 2009, elliptical rudder with carbon post 2009 and may others too numerous to list. A complete inventory of North racing sails made in 2016 are available separately, subject to prior sale.
"Phantom" has a proven race pedigree including the Big Boat Series sponsored by the prestigious St. Francis Yacht Club and the Pacific Cup to Hawaii in addition to pleasurable cruising in California and Mexico. Her PHRF rating is 21.
It is rare to see a yacht of this vintage in such superb condition and even more so offered by her original owners at a realistic price. Direct San Francisco Bay access from her potentially transferable berth at one of Sausalito's finest marinas. That alone makes this yacht a must see! New to the market and early viewing is highly recommended.
