The Yacht J'Sea - Mediterranean Sailing Charters from Marmaris, Turkey

The J’Sea is experienced and rugged, with oceanic capability, yet attractive and charming when nestled into her berth in a Turkish Riviera marina. She has been immaculately maintained, with various upgrades, and now John offers her for sale. He has purchased a larger yacht, and must part with the J'Sea. She has served him well and will be missed. Contact him about how you can acquire this wonderful vessel.

The J’Sea is a late model Gib’Sea, a well built, custom designed 47' sloop, that was refitted in 2003, 2004 & 2005. Her 14' beam makes her stable and roomy, with 1 owner's forward cabin that has 2 washrooms, extra closets and 4 overhead hatches. She also has 2 double aft cabins—each with it’s own private head (bathroom) and closet. Each bathroom has a shower with hot and cold running water. The cabins are comfortable, private, and well ventilated (multiple hatches and fans) to stay cool during those hot summer days.

She has a fiberglass hull with clean, sleek lines. The modern interior consists of laminated floors, white upholstery with teak joinery throughout. You will feel comfortable anywhere on this yacht. The J’Sea is fresh, bright, modern, and her skipper, John Cuzner is meticulous about keeping her clean.

The spars and sails consist of an aluminum Francespar mast and boom, with stainless steel wire rigging and braided rope running rigging. With an Inmast furling mainsail and furling genoa with Goiot furling gear, the J’Sea can easily be sailed by one crew member.
