The J105 had a similar design spec, ie go fast, be fun, 1d race, 5.5' head room, enough for the ave female, reasonable interior, but that the owner when crusing would hit B&B's or equal every few days etc with occasional stop at a park/bouy or anchor, and at a marina.
Reality is, like for me, the Jeanneau SunFast 3200 would work well too, easily sailible with two, designed that way, has hit 18 knots planing etc, not a lot of interior, but has over 6' of headroom......enough interior to do what I would need it to do for the most part. Not quite enough for the spouse.........but..........
I do see the reason for the M series and Alerion style boats, J has a more modern touch hull desing if you will on some of there models. All are good!
