Another huge price reduction! Seller wants boat gone!
Super-efficient power cat! Use one-third the fuel with twice the space! Half the new-purchase price with twice the fuel economy!
This vessel is in near new condition at half the price of a new Scimitar, similarly equipped. Barbara J was purchased in Alameda CA, shipped from Australia new, and commissioned in 2002. It was delivered via ship to Ensenada that year, and cruised to La Paz. Later it was put on Dockwise and delivered to Vancouver for cruising, and then Yacht Path brought it to San Diego.
When it was ordered there were more than 30 options added including refrigeration, hard top, electronics, solar panels, upper helm, and upgraded to 125-hp Yanmar engines. Options on the boat totaled more than $40,000 for comparison to new boat price. Barbara J is a one owner boat and has had excellent care and light use. This boat is an excellent platform for efficient cruising, family fun, fishing, and watersports. She would be a fantastic spectator boat for the upcoming America's Cup in San Francisco.

Enter the expansive aft deck (13'6"x6'9") via a swim step. The large day head and shower are conveniently separated from the main cabin and right off aft deck. The head uses integrated, molded components for very simple cleaning.
The massive and airy salon with 6'5" headroom is accessed by two opening doors and with opening ports for ventilation. The dinette is to starboard. The L-shaped ‘home-style galley’ is to port, and the lower helm and refrigeration/freezer are forward. The salon is surrounded by windows, five of which open for ventilation.
There are berth for six or seven guests. On each side of the salon, forward are the entrances to the two private staterooms with a double bed on cedar plank supports, large hanging locker and storage locker. Quarter berth singles are aft, port and starboard. Starboard side is a mirror image of portside.
At a beautiful anchorage, you actually get to see that beautiful view. Small opening ports in the hull (six) give additional ventilation with security.
The molded galley is laid out in an ‘L’ shape with excellent storage, easy cleaning and massive counter space. The solar-powered refrigerator/freezer (famous Iceer brand) is large and located next to the lower helm station for easy access from the galley.
