First time on the market, incredible performance offshore cruiser, custom built, custom rigged, expertly maintained. Just completed full detailing and bottom paint in April 2020. Absolutely one of a kind!
PIPE DREAM IX was built in 1996 (hull #3) by an exceptional yachtsman and has proven to be an incredible racer and cruiser ever since, circumnavigating the globe five times. 
This J/160 fulfills the dream with an investment-grade sailing yacht that promises you a greater sense of joy and satisfaction at the end of a day's cruise than is possible on any other yacht.
PIPE DREAM IX sailed 40,000+ miles to set course records in the Annapolis-Bermuda Race and log 1,000 mile runs over four days on three separate occasions to win its division of the Expo'98 Round the World Rally. PIPE DREAM IX has put this American yacht into first place worldwide when combining ease of handling, performance and cruising comfort.

PIPE DREAM IX hit four 55 knot storms off the Cape of Good Hope where the strong Agulhas Current goes up against gale force winds creating huge square waves known to crack freighters in half. Motorsailing with feathered, reefed mainsail at 10 degrees apparent, right into the sea, the J/160 could make port doing 7-8 knots. Most boats become unmanageable in such sea-state and winds. Because of advanced composite construction J/160 is built twice as strong as hand-laid fiberglass boats. It's built to take such abuse.

Sailing competitively around the world, five people became the ideal crew size to manage this 53 footer around the clock in all conditions. Seasoned offshore sailors said they'd never sailed a boat like this in their life. Imagine surfing with a chute hitting a top speed of 18.6 knots and taking your hands off the wheel. Her high length to beam ratio and buoyant forward sections provide exceptional tracking in large seas.
