J/27, 1985 #28 for sale $19,000

A very fast boat, competitive for both lake and bay racing; an easy, fun and rewarding boat to sail generally. Dry sailed from slings since 2012, Toccata is only in the water when she is sailing. She has been very well maintained and upgraded and is in exceptional condition for her age.
