Gold Fleet

Nirvana is a J/105 in our Berkeley Gold Fleet. The J/105 by J/Boats is one of the most exciting types of boats we’ve sailed! This popular one-design model combines speed and performance with comfort and simplicity. With an overall length of 34.5 feet and a deep fin keel (draft of 6.5 feet), the J/105 is fast and responsive. Get on a beam reach, trim your sails, and blast off!

The cockpit is large and roomy, although it is not protected by a dodger like many boats of this size.

The mainsheet is attached to a wide traveller conveniently located just forward of the oversized wheel. As such, the helmsperson can either trim the mainsail while steering or just enjoy steering while a dedicated mainsheet trimmer keeps the boat powered up.

The roller-furling jib, slab reefing mainsail, and inboard engine add simplicity to sailing the J/105. Like the J/24, the J/105 offers the usual sail-shaping controls like the cunningham, outhaul, and adjustable backstay.

Down below, you’ll find a proper marine head, VHF radio/electronics, and long settees and v-berth with cushions.

    The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.

    Every aspect of Modern Sailing - training, syllabus, course materials, quality of the boats, quality of the instructors, and the very friendly and helpful staff - exceeded my expectations. Modern Sailing has a first class sailing program in an environment with challenging winds and currents. I look forward to coming back to charter a boat and certainly plan to continue my sailing training.

    I love sailing in the San Francisco Bay and greatly appreciate everything that MSC has to offer, the classes, clinics, club sails, racing and charters. I enjoy our supportive sailing community and use every opportunity to spend time on the water. After obtaining the certifications from MSC I did my first charter in Croatia in 2022 with my family. It was amazing and we’re looking forward to returning soon!
