The price is not ridiculous, it is what cost to make a boat with that quality the way it is done, building techniques and materials.

For having a less expensive boat you have to compromise more and make it in bigger numbers, like the First, Elan, Dufour, Salona and now Dehler. Anyway a top version of any of those boats will cost almost the price of the J 122. The difference is that the J122 is already a top boat in standard version.


Well if I had that kind of money to spend I would buy one of the "compromise" boats and then buy a Farr 30 to race with the boys!
