The Chandlery Yacht Sales has been a J Boat dealer since 1978. We are located just minutes from Radio Flyer's berth. Fly into Santa Barbara and we will pick you up at the airport for a viewing.
Radio Flyer is currently the best priced J145 on the market. Newer upgrades include newer Yanmar engine, painted Awlgrip hull (2015). New sprayed bottom paint (2015). Carbon fiber mast, boom & wheel Awlgrip clear coated (2015). Current ORR certificate. PHRF rated. Her Hall Spars triple spreader mast, deck, boom, sprit & rudder are built with carbon fiber & epoxy. She has both cruising and racing floor boards. All halyards are hi-tec. Primary winches are over sized 3-speed's for faster tacks & jibes. She has both a genoa roller furler as well as a Tuff luff foil system. She also has the optional European under-deck mainsheet system.
A Fast, Easy-to-Handle Boat: Sailing a J/145 is surprisingly easy. Two people can go for an afternoon sail on the J/145 in just minutes. Throw off the boom cover. Hoist the main on a 2:1 halyard. Cast off. Sail under main alone or unroll the jib from its furler. That’s it. Even the spinnaker is ready in its sock. Pull out the sprit. Hoist the halyard. Slide up the sock. Trim the sheet. Easy, upwind and downwind. It’s unlikely you’ve sailed a boat this fast with such a low center of gravity or a boat this large that’s so responsive and easy to handle. It’s like sailing a 40 footer that turns on a dime but with the stability of a 50 footer. One of the joys of owning a great boat is the ability to share it with family and friends. J/145 is just as happy on the two-week family cruise, as it is sprinting around the buoys or daysailing in the bay.The 145 is a hybrid sailing yacht that combines the cruising comfort of J's cruising line with the performance aspects of J's bowsprit yachts.

Elegant Versatile Interior: Key to the J/145’s interior design is the concept that it’s the main cabin that defines the elegance of the yacht while light-weight, functional ends determine its performance and sail handling capabilities. Upon descending the companionway stairs, one is presented with a vista of fine cabinetry in the galley, nav station and settee area. The varnished cold-molded joiner work is crafted in teak or to very high standards. The arrangement outboard of the port settee is a pilot berth for sleeping comfort on offshore passages. To starboard is an entertainment center, book and bar cabinet storage. Bolstered, Ultra-Leather upholstery on the settees is available. Aft and to port is a fully enclosed head. Aft to starboard is the owners stateroom that sleeps two. Midships is a very nice salon with seating for ten. The bow area forward is set up with four pipe berths. The bow are can also store the sail inventory.
