JJ Moon (Now for Sale)
JJ Moon is a Contest 43 designed by Dick Zaal and built by Conyplex B.V. in Medemblik, Holland in 1993. She has hull no. 27 in her class, which was continued for several years.
She measures 13.10 metres overall, has a beam of 4.0m and a draft of 1.75m. With full tanks and loaded with cruising gear she probably displaces nearly 15 tonnes. She is of GRP sandwich construction with a balsa core, has a cast iron winged keel and teak decks. She is rigged as a sloop with an inner forestay on which to set heavy weather canvas. Both main and genoa are on roller furling gear. A 99hp Volvo MD31B turbocharged diesel provides sufficient power through a MaxProp to cope with most conditions.
Down below she has a beautiful aft cabin, a fairly spacious fore cabin and two good sea berths in the saloon. There is a very well laid out galley, a secure navigation station and two heads with showers. Overall she provides a comfortable cruising home for two and more than adequate accommodation for four people on holiday.
She has reasonable tankage and battery capacity, which can be charged through two main engine alternators and a 4kVA genset. We have a fridge/freezer and separate top loading fridge, pressurised hot water and warm air space heating. The navigator has at his disposal, among other things, an autopilot, PC based chart plotting software, radar, SSB radio and Navtex.
We have enjoyed our years sailing JJ Moon and believe her to be the best sort of boat for those wishing to live aboard for any length of time. She has safely brought us round the world and we feel that she has many more miles in her for the right owner.
