1 We call her Janna
…as in arabic al’janna, which means “garden” as in the “Garden of Eden”…
You won’t need to spend months in a boat-yard. You can go cruising immediately, because we are cruising right now on this boat. You can step aboard as we step off.
We take a good care of our little boat. She’s a lovely home and a great performer at sea.
The equipment is minimalistic, but we rarely wished for more. We’ve put a lot of thought into transforming Janna into a cozy, but utilitarian vessel.
It is our home and an office.
We are the third owners and we are selling Janna for family reasons.
1.1 Significant features
These are the most important features that make Janna what she is (see more below).
She is a perfect home for a couple, however, four people will find comfortable berths on board. Two on the V-berth and two in the cabin. The cabin settee cushions fit nicely in the cockpit and you will spend many a night there.
1.1.1 Minimized routes for water ingress
We have kept only 3 seacocks (out of 10) – one for the seawater intake, one for the galley, which doubles as a port cockpit scupper drain, and one for the second cockpit scupper drain.
1.1.2 Confortable and safe galley, lots of storage space
The galley is well designed and we have never had water coming through the galley sink, even in foul weather. Two large storage lockers are right next to the galley sink.
We have converted the quarter-berth into another locker accessible from the cockpit and made special drains which keep the lockers dry in all weather.
We have also made a heavy-duty rail guard for the stove and the pots stay put even in bad weather. In really bad weather we cook in a pressure cooker (our most useful utensil).
There are two 5kg aluminum LPG cylinders on the deck. They usually last two and half months – but we cook a lot and bake regularly. The LPG is carried via a single high-pressure hose, thus minimizing the points of failure.
1.1.3 Efficient rigging
Previous owner added a strong 3’ stainless-steel bowsprit and a roller furling genoa. This allows for extremely easy wing and wing setup for downwind passages. The genoa is a real workhorse.
There is an inner forestay for hank on sails: light genoa for light winds and short tacking and reefing jib, which doubles as a storm jib. There’s another spare jib.
The virtually frictionless Cape Horn windvane will steer the boat on any point of sail, including downwind even in light winds. Maintenance is a piece of cake.
Halyards lead to the cockpit. This is great for single-handlers or your partner who can remain in the safety and comfort of the cockpit during the sail changes.
Only hank-on jib halyard ends at the mast, which makes it easy for the crew handling the jibs to control the sail. Occasionally we have used also a downhaul for the jibs, which makes pulling the sails down in strong winds safer.
We have ordered new large mainsail, with extended roach, as well as very light hank-on genoa. Both sails provide extra power and make short tacking in light winds very enjoyable.
1.1.4 Substantial ground tackle
Since we bought a 20kg Rocna, we’ve never dragged, even on a shorter scope. The chain is of prime quality, made by Acco. There are two more CQRs, spare piece of chain and about 200m of three-strand lines.
1.1.5 Spacious and save cockpit
A folding table fits in the cockpit and six people can enjoy a dinner in reasonable comfort. The cockpit is relatively deep and you will feel save even in foul conditions.
The cockpit sole can be lifted, which provides a great access to the engine room, which makes regular maintenance so much more enjoyable. Engine can be easily lifted out of the boat using the boom.
1.1.6 Everything is well documented
