Since its introduction, The J/111 has amassed accolades as a sleek, speedy, one-design 36 footer that is the ultimate day sailing, racing and weekend cruising sailboat. Quick to accelerate, easy to handle, the J/111's open cockpit easily services both short handed and full crew.

Blast is a true beauty with her custom painted black hull, and a weapon on the One Design or Handicap racing circuit. Nicely appointed and well maintained interior adds to the aesthetic of this unique J/111. Well set up for inshore and offshore racing, she has notable factory upgrades such as black powder coated stanchions and rails and the cockpit upgrades to the vang.

With an extensive sail inventory in good condition she lacks for nothing to go racing at a highly competitive level right away. She is turnkey ready for racing with an extra bonus of a pristine, low engine hour (47 hours) Yanmar.
