J28, 1986

J/28 sailboat in excellent condition.

  • Best sailing boat ever...hands down.
  • One of the few "cruisers" J ever made, but with J pedigree she is of course also very fast.
  • Not a temperamental/minimalistic/fragile racer - but still she is very fast and points great!
  • Petit Mal currently sailing on Lake Norman (close to Charlotte NC). Job losses force sale.

    The following were new or reconditioned within past 5 years:

  • air conditioning (reconditioned), hot water (new), head (new), 2 cycl 18hp yanmar diesel that runs perfect (rebuilt – out of boat – by yanmar mechanic, along w/ drivetrain and all hoses), headsail roller furling (new), bimini (new), whaler and fresh water pumps (new), sacrificial headsail fabric (new).
  • I put 32k into her just 5 yrs ago replacing and refurbishing every system (except sails since they were good and are still ok). She is absolutely in turn-key, near perfect condition.
  • 2 sails are great cruising condition and could even work ok for racing. 2 brand new batteries installed Oct 2018.
  • Excellent shape - you won't be disappointed.
  • And she is the perfect size and has the right comforts - plus speed and sails and points great in all wind conditions!
  • Great for racing, daysailing, extended cruising, and using as a condo!
