Every once in a while a boat like Harlequin comes on the market and this J/40 is quite possibly the most perfect turnkey 40’ world capable performance cruiser on the market today. Hull number 85 of the 86 total J/40’s built Harlequin has an interior like no other J/40 you’ve seen. Her auxiliary is under the cockpit, her nav desk is forward facing, her settee bunks are deep with ample storage behind, her Salon table is fixed w/ drop leafs, and she even has a deepanchor locker in the bow enclosing a large windlass. Harlequin’s interior shows like the day she was delivered to her current owner and he has been consistently keeping her upgraded, even replacing her electronics in the last 5 years.
You need to come see Harlequin with your own eyes to appreciate her blend of modern style with classic New England design. J Boats bills her design as “comfort & speed for couples that cruise across oceans,” and they may have nailed her pedigree with that statement. The J/40 is just the right size to maneuver easily in the mooring field or marina, is fast enough under sail to enjoy any bit of breeze on the water, is manageable by one or two sailors and has the structure to take you anywhere your dreams lead you. Don’t miss out on this very rare opportunity.
