One of the last and most evolved 160's built, “Heron” benefits from
the countless refinements from earlier models and from extensive owner
driven customization. Her knowledgeable owner added well-thought-out
improvements during many factory visits. Carbon spars and power
primaries enhance ease and safety of coastal and offshore cruising
performance. Validation came with Heron’s 2nd place finish in Class A
of the Marion Bermuda Race --without any sail changes, spinnakers or
professionals! You will find no sweeter helm than Heron’s with
her carbon wheel and custom rudder bearings. Her refined interior is
gorgeous and comfortable for full time cruising. Come and relish the
comfort, style, capability and performance of this fabulous 160.

2011 IRC Boat Of The Year
Introduced in 2009, the J/97's sisterships attained spectacular
performances in major European regattas, winning class in Spi Ouest,
Cowes Week, Hamble Winter Series, Sailing World NOOD Chicago and
Warsash Springs Series, to name a few. And, the original J/97 was
named 2011 IRC Boat of the Year in France (see more results below).
J/97 is the first J in over two decades under 32’ to combine headroom
and family cruising accommodations in a high performance, easily
driven hull. With the handling ease of an asymmetric spinnaker and
non-overlapping headsails, the J/97 promises to be J Boats’ most
versatile design yet under 35’ to fit the needs of today’s sailing
families, both young and old alike-- the ultimate combination of
sailing performance and creature comforts for all!
The key to creating a versatile sailboat is staying focused on the
quality of the sailing experience, a trait shared by all J designs.
Boats that are easily driven, easily handled, and genuinely fun to
sail provide greater long-term “sailing value” to their owners than
designs driven by the latest rating rule or designs that are
over-compromised to meet the latest styling trends. Form follows
function in good sailboat design, the J/97 is no exception.
The J/97 cockpit features full length seats with back rests,
tiller steering, and an open transom. All sailing controls are within
reach of the helmsperson to make the boat very easy to manage. A
retractable bow sprit with masthead asymmetric spinnaker allows great
all-around performance without the need for numerous skilled crew. The
low VCG keel provides exceptional upwind stability while being
cruising friendly with swept back leading edge and moderate draft.
The J/97's new interior layout conveys a feeling of extraordinary of
a wide, spacious living room with windows looking out to the sea.
With large overhead hatches, enormous cabin windows and large
portligths over the settees, it feels like you're outdoors! It's
ideal for one couple cruising with room for more. The enormous main
cabin has two settees, galley, forward-facing navigation station; plus
an enclosed aft head, V-berth, and aft owner’s cabin. Cruising stowage
includes a large “garage” aft of the head (accessed through the
cockpit seat locker). ARCO IRIS is in excellent shape and an ideal 32
foot racer cruiser.
