"Legacy" is a fine example of the comfortable and capable J/40, one of Rod Johnstone's best designs.
The first impression when sailing her is that everything works so easily. The cockpit layout has all of the key sailing controls at the hand of the helmsman for easy single-handed maneuvers. The J40 is just as happy rounding the marks as she is on long offshore passages.
She is stiff, weatherly and a joy to sail in all conditions.
Below decks is a full teak interior with generous sized berths, an intelligently laid out galley and the luxury and privacy afforded by two heads.
This particular J40 boasts numerous upgrades and for the vast majority of her life, she has been used for only 8 weeks per year.
