Jeanneau JOD 35 was the official boat for the "Tour de France à la Voile' from 1992 to 1998.
I didn't notice too many signs of a hard race life on this girl. Yes she could do with some touch up of deck paint and you may wish to consider fully over hauling the engine at some point in the future but the engine still seemed to be running ok when the owner turned her over for me.
She has a good sail wardrobe and benefits from some recently upgraded Raymarine navigation equipment including a SailGen hydrogenerator.
If you do not have an interest in the ISAF Offshore Regs, this is not the boat for you!
When I bought the boat, I had spent some time looking for a boat specifically to compete in the RORC Fastnet Race in the two-handed class, my eighth Fastnet. Since then I have competed in solo racing, a solo Fastnet and the Wolf Rock and a further RORC 2H series, including the Fastnet. Last year with a crew of just four, we cleaned up the IRC Class at the Services Offshore Regatta with four firsts and a second, gaining particular note for completing the final Offshore race two-handed.
She has been prepared with the ISAF special Reg Class 2 in mind and to optimize the IRC handicap ; a carbon bowsprit, changing to asymmetric spinnakers, makes for easy short-handed racing. Raymarine i-series instruments, two chart plotters and both the auto-pilot and back-up tiller-pilot are over rated for the size of boat. The battery system has been split to conform with the requirements for main and auxiliary power and the Sea-Gen charges both batteries independently with power to spare, at the cost of point one of a knot but benefits from not having to carry additional fuel. The accommodation is spartan but not uncomfortable and has been well looked after.
The offshore mainsail, jibs and asymmetrics have been specially cut and laminated to account for not having half a ton of rail-meat but the inshore wardrobe is full size.
Effectively with very little effort you could easily compete in another Fastnet, there should be little more to do than do some servicing, grab some food and go qualify!
