Boat Type: Racer and Cruiser Address: Annapolis, MD, US Price: $199,500


Like Getting Free Sails and Electronics

Rare opportunity to own this very lightly used very well taken care of J97e. The 97e is the evolution of the J97, a proven winner. The J97e combines excellent performance with comfortable accommodations and easy sail handling. 97E is the first J in over two decades under 32' to combine headroom and family cruising accommodations in a high performance, easily driven hull.

La Quatrieme was delivered in summer of 2016. She is equipped with a full suite of Quantum racing sails including 2 Code 0's. Complete B&G electronics package including autopilot. Other options of note include the wheel package, two tone decks and the Cruising Pack.

LQ has been never been cruised and only used for light club racing. Overall, she is as close to new condition as you will find a boat. Priced well below replacement, it's like getting a new boat with sails and electronics for free.
