Broker's Comments

Boatshed Torquay are delighted to offer this J80 for sale. This J80 is a clean and tidy example that is ready to tow away on her own trailer. It has the great benefit of a new outboard engine only purchased in April of this year. Plus she has 4 suites of sails, all in good condition.
The trailer is in good condition and has had 4 new extra load tyres this April
If you fancy some ‘one design’ racing or club racing then J80’s are just the thing. This J80 has been priced very competitively and is well worth consideration.
If you would like any further information or if you would like to organise a viewing then please contact me.

These boat details are subject to contract.
