Jade is a custom sailboat with more than 160 upgrades over the standard 460 making her the Hunter-Helsen Signature 470. With only two ever built Jopie Helsen of Sailors Wharf took great pride in the conversion of these vessels. The biggest change over the standard 460 is the custom sugar scoop transom which added a foot and a half to the waterline providing better performance and a cleaner look. Helsen also worked with Doyle Sails to create a performance sail package. If you are looking for sailboat that can take you anywhere Jade was built for that purpose and is in immaculate condition!
