Rachel J Yacht Description


Recently arrived at our fresh water, under cover showrooms at Atlantic Yacht Basin in Great Bridge, Virginia, this ruggedly over-built raised pilothouse coastal cruiser is now available because her loving owners, the vessel's second, have decided that the time has come to retire from boating. RACHEL J features a single, indestructible 115hp Detroit Diesel 4-71N, generator, diesel heater, nice electronics, and her hull was Awlgripped in 2017. Cruise comfortably at 7.5 knots, turning 1400 rpms and burning 2.5 gallons per hour. This is truly a one-of-a- kind vessel for a one-of-a-kind buyer. Documentation, plans and photographs of her construction are available. INCREDIBLE!
