2010 Best Boats Performance Boat: J/95

Rod Johnstone’s latest design taps into a new market segment for the Rhode Island-based company: shoal-draft boats. The versatile J/95 has both twin rudders and a centerboard, neither of which has been seen on J/Boat before. With the ballasted board up the boat draws just 3 feet, while remaining perfectly controllable under full sail. The J/Boats performance ethos remains intact; the boat is fast, agile and fun to sail, though the accommodations belowdecks are bare-bones basic. For more information, visit J/Boats
