FLASH ! !   Originally asking 29,950.00 then reduced to 24,950.00

This J 30 is different in many ways from most 1979 J 30's.  Try the math and go buy an 11,000 to 18,000 $ J 30 and then do all of the work that has been done on this largely Freshwater J 30 and you will have somewhere over 30k to 35k invested - - plus a lot of your time.   This J 30 has already been beautifully  reworked and is ready to go.      She includes:

A totally refinished deck, both new non-skid and Urethane painted smooth surfaces.  New Harken self tailing winches for the cabin top and for the primaries in the cockpit, new sheet stoppers and all new running rigging, new expensive opening ports with proper window frames and a new Ritchie bulkhead compass are some of the upgrades.  This is ANYTHING but a tired boat.

Appears to be a NEW  KUBOTA Diesel - - look at the photos and  it will say it all.   No worn out motor mounts - - all new.  Very LOW hours.   NO need to replace a diesel for $10,000 or better as this has already been done.

The interior is clean and fresh.  Even looking in the bilge you'll find most visible surfaces have been properly painted.  The rest of the interior is just as decent.  Look at the photos of the interior and you will agree.

The Underbody is virtually flawless with a new VC 17  FAST  underbody.

With all of this done by the owner who accomplished this he met with line honors at his club on Old Hickory Lake in Nashville.

So if you are looking for a great club racer that is READY TO GO, new sails, rigging, underbody, new diesel with an interior that you and your first mate can be proud of and for less than the cost of a new 19' Lightning class one-design you  have probably met your Waterloo with "OPERATION OVERLORD".

As for relocation you can either motor her by water to Kentucky Lake and finally to the Gulf Coast down the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway or Rooke Sails can assist with a complete turnkey relocation to her new home port as necessary.  No trailer included. 

Come get this great club racer that can pass handsomely as a week-end cabin for you and your family.  If you never race her you will have endless hours of pleasure sailing this thoroughbred J 30.  She is a most unique J 30.   When you see her YOU will say  '"YES""  ! !
