Description

Sellers will contribute $15,000 to relocate this boat to your home port!

Spectre 4, ex 'Ace', is a turn key example of one of the best J Boat designs and most proven offshore sailboat of all time. Her carbon/kevlar hull make her one of the lightest and stiffest boats in class, and the J design pedigree means she is well rounded from off the wind to close hauled. 

Some of her highlights include:

New bottom 2022, updated B&G electronics, new Quantum headsails, racing headfoil and cruising roller furling head foil, radar with custom carbon fibre pole, watermaker, dodger/bimini, custom cruising cushions, and more. Spectre boasts a unique v-berth layout with two bunks yet still utilizing a sail storage locker. 

Her equipment list and ownership history reflect a boat that has been well cared for and prepared to cruise and race anywhere in the world.

With only 18 J/145's built there are not many opportunities to own such a unique and sought after boat.

Accomodations

Forward Cabin:

Forward of the main bulkhead is where most of these boats are different with only a couple having the same layout. On Ace, we decided to move the ring frame forward 9" to allow for full length berths and have a large storage locker forward for cruising and ocean passages. Aft of this are single berths to port and starboard with drawers and lower locker storage. Bookshelves have been added outboard of the berths. These convert to sail bins when racing. Aft to port is the head with shower. To starboard is a cabinet with vanity sink.
