Rarely seen on the market: a stunning J Boats J/145 in impeccable condition, with hull painted in Stars&Stripes blue and two tone deck, ready to sail away. Number 5 of only 18 built with hull, deck and spars in carbon fibre. One of the very few ones built with a full cruising interior and the only one originally fully adapted to the European market (220V). This yacht has mainly been cruised with and has been maintained and updated by the current owner to the highest level. This 48 feet yacht is a head turner, both on the water and in port with high and easy speed, comfort, stability and…great looks!
Ilderim is a 48 foot carbon fibre cruiser-racer that is fast, easy-to-handle and comfortable. Sailing upwind at 8 knots of speeds or doing double digits on a reach in only moderate winds is no exception for the Ilderim, combined with a sense of great stability and control, transferred through a responsive wheel. The J/145 is still the fastest J/boat ever built with all the amenities one could wish for and the handling of a 40 feet yacht. Both hull and deck are built with long-lasting, high-tech laminate with carbon fiber & E-glass skins and Baltek Superlight 45 core (hull) and high density foam (deck), infused with the patended SCRIMP system using high vacuum levels, leading to a very strong, yet light construction with an amazing strength-to-weight ratio. Which enables a high 45% ballast/displacement ratio with a very low center of gravity and a limit of positive stability over 130 degrees. Based also on a keel with lead bulb and a flange to connect with the hull with four times the interface area of a regular fin keel – leading to much greater structural strength in the event of groundings. All enabled also by the use of carbon fibre for the mast, bow sprit, rudder. Target speeds are real, with – typical for J’s – a wider steering groove upwind for sustained peak performance. Annually wintered on the dry, annually sanding and antifouling and anodes change.
Full cruising interior in varnished cherry joinery, which means as extra to the standard an aft port toilet, extra fine cabinetry in the aft cabin on starboard, entertainment cabinet in main cabin on starboard, and a fully ‘built-in’ owner’s cabin in the forepeak, with varnished wood trim, hanging locker and bathroom cabinet.
