General Details

Although quite capable of club racing, QUESTAR has never been raced and has been cruised very lightly in Southern California waters by her original owner. Always professionally maintained, she has only about 1,050 engine hours. The J/46 is the perfect combination of high quality fit and finish and excellent performance. She is rigged to be easily sailed by a couple. The J/46 was awarded the Sail Magazine Top Ten in 2000 and also the Sailing World Boat of the Year in 2000.
