Steller J. The J30 is a great cruiser often seen anchored in beautiful coves and bays in the Pacific north west. Steller J easily sleeps four but can sleep up to six. The J30 is a great cruiser racer and has just returned from two weeks in Desolation Sound. Her accommodation is as follows: You enter the large cabin with almost 6’ headroom; The galley area is to port with a double burner stove, sink and storage cupboards; to starboard is more storage and a navigation table that slides aft to reveal a large cool box; The main cabin consists of two long settees that double as side berths with storage below, behind, and above; Through the bulkhead door where the force 10 heater is located is the head along with a sink and hanging closet; Past the head is a spacious V-Birth that easily sleeps two tall adults.

The current owner has extensively updated her over the past four years with no expense spared. The latest B&G electronics, new deck hardware, new lines, and updated interior. When the boat was bought three years ago the bottom was sanded down to gel coat, blemished filled and faired, and new bottom paint. Steller J has just been taken out of the water and has had the bottom repainted. The Yanmah 2qm15, dubbed the Nagasaki Knocker, is known for its reliability and low diesel fuel consumption. Lovingly maintained with a full fluid flush every year. She does not use an oz of oil. The engine pushes her along at 6.2 knots getting you to your destination faster than most 30’ sailboats.

Steller J is ready to cruise or race. She has competed in most VARC series and regattas, Round Salt Spring Regatta and won podium standing in multiple VRC Polar Bear series.
