2006 J Boats J/124

location icon Alameda, California
Year 2006
Length 40'9 ft

This beautiful J/124 features many upgrades and has been well outfitted and customized for inshore racing and daysailing.  A navigator's dream, she features a recently installed B&G H 5000 system with custom fabricated stainless screen encasement and helm station wheel mount and waterproof touch pad, along with controls to display both chartplotter and Expedition.  For the audiophile, she features a Bowers and Wilkinson stereo system with indoor and outdoor speakers.

She’s been well maintained, with all new shrouds and rod rigging in 2017, upgraded winches and a full asymmetrical and symmetrical setup and kit. 

From its large carbon wheel to the fine teak joinery work and Ultra suede upholstery below, or simply by the smooth, graceful way it slides through the water, the J/124 is every bit a sailing yacht… in the best sense of the word. One that is a joy to sail in all conditions with minimal crew.

Yet, J/124’s focus on short-handed sailing qualities doesn’t preclude many days of offshore coastal sailing. Her narrow beam and low center-of-gravity are hallmarks of seaworthiness. 

J/124 is a true escape…away from all the trappings and chores of home. Little-used amenities and complex cruising systems are discouraged where possible. But, all the important stuff is there:

A full function galley; 6 feet of headroom; three separate sleeping areas; a cockpit made secure with 14” high backrests and seats that are long enough to sleep on, make Spirit of Freedom not only a joy to sail but a commodious and welcoming escape for family and friends.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The J/124’s focus on short-handed sailing qualities doesn’t preclude many days of offshore coastal sailing. Her narrow beam and low center-of-gravity are hallmarks of seaworthiness. All the important stuff is there: An adequate galley and chart table; the accessible top-loading icebox; 6 feet of headroom; three separate sleeping areas; a dodger for all-weather protection; and a cockpit made secure with 14” high backrests and seats that are long enough to sleep on. The high-tech composite hull evolves from J’s that have dominated IRC competition in Europe over the past three years. The Hall Spars mast and ACC rudder are carbon fiber.


The Main cabin is appointed in Cherry and Teak Panels and white formica tops for easy care and brightness. All Upholstery is Indigo blue Ultrasuede for an elegant bristol look and a durable long life.
