The J-145 hits the sweet spot for a truly high performance boat that is also an incredibly comfortable cruiser. There is little compromise in these boats. Double Take has been raced and cruised in the Pacific Northwest since 2011, but now her owner is ready to move on and she is seriously for sale.

With two class wins in the TransPac, 3rd in the Van Isle 360 and a first over all, and first to finish in the Vic-Maui Race, Double Take's (Formerly Bad Pak and Stark Raving Mad) record speaks for itself. During the build, her original owner had inspectors on site assuring excellence. DoubleTake is a stiff and solidly built J-145, arguably the fastest on the water. She is extremely well equipped for racing with most or all of the gear necessary to compete in an offshore race such as the TransPac, Pacific Cup or Vic-Maui. Her North Sails inventory is in great condition and includes 3DI upwind sails and has the addition of a new North #4 (2016), North Drifter (2016), North Drifter (2015) and North 3DI #1 in late 2012. She has been kept competitive and is ready to go.

Apart from her racing pedigree, she does do deliveries and cruising excursions exceptionally wellDouble Take has a removable dodger, forced air heat, microwave oven and removable radar on a carbon forespar pole. Most recently, Lewmar 65 electric primary winches were added as well (The Lewmar 66 racing winches are available to be swapped out for race mode). The forepeak converts to a V-berth cabin while in cruise mode, which is removable for an open bow section for sail storage when in race mode.

Double Take represent an excellent opportunity. She has been maintained and upgraded though out her life.  Her price reflects the seller’s commitment for a fair market value sale.

 





Since her purchase in late 2011, I have been involved with Double Take and her race program. This is a great boat! She's fast and well equipped. Her light displacement with carbon rig and swept spreaders make for a boat that is easily handled short handed. But what's remarkable is the speeds she is capable with effortless planing speeds as the wind builds. She is extremely well equipped for the sailor contemplating an offshore race. Her inventory includes many mechanical spares needed for such a venture, e-rudder, watermaker, offshore flares, MOM8 unit, Satellite phone, delivery sails, dodger and the list goes on. Interested?
