This late model J/35 “Kells Bells” and formerly known as “Ritual” in Port Dover, has had a great racing record on Lake Erie.  The owners have properly maintained this boat and spent the money to professionally repair and upgrade where needed.  You can see from the photos that this boat is clean and in great shape for an older race boat.  The boat is ready to launch and go win in your local PHRF fleet, whether its around the cans or in a distance race, she’s a winner.

Purchased by current owners in the Fall 2017, she has spent the last 3 seasons in Buffalo.  Currently on the sales lot with the mast down at RCR Buffalo.  Please schedule a viewing with Tim Finkle 860-917-5416 or
