Mark Mansfield, the Irish agent for Key Yachting, has four great brokerage yachts to sell.

All are ready to go for racing in 2023, with great sail inventories, and all are well maintained.

Key Yachting has the Irish Agencies for J/ Boats, Grand Soleil, Nautitech Catamarans and Tofinou dayboats.

In Ireland, Key Yachting is making a name for itself in the brokerage market, particularly for racers and cruiser racers.

Yachts currently available are:

Ker 37 Jump Juice

Ker 37 Jump JuiceKer 37 Jump Juice

Well-known winner on Irish waters, very well maintained and only lightly raced in the last 7 or 8 years doing only 3/4 regattas a year. Despite this, new sails and upgrades have always been a feature. Lying ashore for the last year in Cork. More information here

Grand Soleil 34 Justina

Grand Soleil 34 Justina

Lightly used for racing and cruising for the past four seasons. Very well maintained and upgraded with new sails and instruments. The Grand Soleil 34 is as comfortable cruising as it is on the race course, offering the renowned Grand Soleil finish with an admirable pace on the racecourse. A real head-turner with a beautiful teak cockpit and lovely Italian design touches. More information here

Jeanneau Sunfast 3600 Yoyo

Jeanneau Sunfast 3600 Yoyo

A young 2018 example of the notable offshore race designs. This particular model has twin wheels, upgraded specifications and is very well maintained. Lightly used in the last year or so, she has a top-level North sails inventory with some new sails in 2022. A fast boat, but still with a nice interior. More information here

J80 J’s Us

J80 J’s UsJ80 J’s Us

2005 model of this very desirable class. The J 80 is competitive on IRC in addition to the strong J 80 class racing in Ireland. Sitting on a good trailer, she can be stored ashore when not required and then brought to a venue with ease. J’s us has a full inventory of sails and other equipment. Perfect for Club IRC racing, class racing, or just day sailing with her easily-handled furling jib. More information here

For information on any of the above brokerage boats, or indeed any new model in the J Boats, Grand Soleil, Nautitech or Tofinou ranges, contact Mark Mansfield at. [email protected] or at 00 353 87 2506838.
