The owner chose the Comfortina 42 on account of its excellent build quality, fast cruising capabilities, comfortable accommodation and generous stowage. Recently sailed back to the UK after five years based in South Brittany, Injaz enjoys VAT paid status in both the UK and EU and is offered for sale on account of the owner wishing to downsize to a smaller boat. She will be sorely missed. Comments from a recent delivery skipper:

'In spring of this year (May/June, 2021), I was asked to deliver “Injaz” from Southern  Brittany to Plymouth. “Injaz” is a fine example of a quality blue water cruiser. She is solidly built, with excellent sea-keeping properties. We found the rig to be particularly well balanced with good up-wind performance. She was a delight to sail  

“Injaz” has been lovingly maintained both above and below decks and is a credit to her current owner.'
