Re: Performance Cruisers and Racer/Cruisers
True the J122 is a great boat. There are two things I don't like about it for cruising though, besides the price. One is the open transom. It looks cool, but you give up storage and a place to sit (the best place to sit on the J120). The second is there is no "garage". It has the dreaded 2nd quarterberth that I think is just silly on a 40' performance cruiser.
I don't like it but you can have it with an option that closes the boat and adds storage. It is a removable closed back bench. The boat can also have two aft cabins or a aft cabin and a storage space, it seems you guys call it garage?
It is a bit small but you can see here the closed transom (with storage space) and the 2 cabin version:

For me the only problem is price but than the J120 as a new boat was also a expensive boat compared with a First for instance. It is unfair to say that the J122 is expensive...because it is new.
