J/Boats has built its reputation around One Design racing boats, but their best work may actually have been realized in melding the best of both the racing and cruising worlds in the J/40. Over the past 30+ years there are few examples where this marriage of divergent interests has been so successfully executed than in the J/40. This is particularly impressive when you consider the significant amount of product that has been designed and built to meet these very requirements in the 40-foot market segment.
Heron Reach is well outfitted, up to and including a brand-new auxiliary, and is ready to head off on your expedition or weekend adventure today. Thoughtfully placed upgrades and useful additions can be found throughout the boat. You will be hard pressed to find a boat better prepared with this kind of sailing performance on the market today.
She is truly ready to go anywhere today.
