WHITE GOLD, is far and away the most highly customized J-44 afloat. Her most recent owner took the original Johnstone J/44 design and gave her every speed advantage possible, including a fully retractable propulsion system; propeller, shaft and strut, to eliminate drag! In addition, the waterline was extended by several feet with reconstruction of a plumb bow on which the waterline is slightly concave to induce further lift to windward. White Gold received a custom deeper keel, re-designed and faired rudder, modified cockpit to include twin helms, complete new instrument pods, all new cockpit winch layout and an open transom. Her original J-44 aluminum spar was replaced with a carbon TP-52 fractional rig, which vastly increased her horsepower under sail. She also received mostly new instrumentation and will be delivered with a full complement of sails.
