A new boat has just been added to the Key Yachting brokerage listing in Ireland writes Key Yachting Ireland representative Mark Mansfield

The 2016 J/112e—Jib and Tonic has just gone on the market and is ready to race or cruise for the 2022 season.

She Joins Jump Juice, the very well-known Ker 37 also listed by Key Yachting.

Both boats could be launched and raced straight away with good bottom finishes, engines recently serviced and good sail inventories.

Either of these could be racing in Wave Regatta in June, Round Ireland Race in June, Cork Week Regatta in July, or racing and cruising around Schull in August and doing Calves Week.

The newest listing is the very fresh and very lightly used J/112e, Jib and Tonic.

As is known, the J/112e is an exceptional performer on IRC, with versions of this design having won the IRC/ORC World Championships in the past, winning Cowes Week 2021 and winning the 2021 ORC World Championships. 

The J/112e also has a very comfortable interior, with two comfortable double cabins, and a very roomy and comfortable main saloon. Her sail and instrument inventory is impressive and on average she has only been used about 15 days a year since new and this is shown by only 97 hours on the engine. The engine is just serviced and she is being antifouled this week. She is ready to go.

Jump Juice, the Ker 37

Jump Juice, the Ker 37, is also ready to go and, like Jib and Tonic, has a particularly impressive sail inventory.

A substantial refit was done on her a few years ago including upgrades to instruments and a paint job on the hull. Jump Juice has been a consistent winner in the past and apart from her speed, is a particularly impressive and attractive yacht—a real head-turner.
