There’s nothing quite like sailing a J. Over 14,000 owners know the feeling - the rush of acceleration, the instant fingertip response to the helm, the excitement of speed both upwind and down, and the confidence that comes from sailing a well-built, easy performing sailboat. Founded in 1977, J/Boats leads the world in designing fun, fast and easy-to-handle sailboats for all ages and abilities. The J/24 started it all, and has since grown to be the most popular offshore one-design in the world with over 5,500 boats sailing. The new, ramp-launchable J/70 speedster is today’s fastest growing sportboat. The rest of the J/Boats line-up includes new generation speedsters (J/88, J/111), daysailers (J/95, J/100), the new E Series of versatile performance cruiser-racers (J/97E, J/112E, J/122E), and family-friendly one-designs (J/22, J/80, J/105).

 J/95

J/95

J/95

The J/95 is a break-through, performance daysailor/weekender that sails in less than 4’ of water. The modern hull design is combined with a low VCG (vertical center of gravity) lead keel, retractable bronze centerboard, twin rudders, and wheel steering. The result is an exceptionally fast and stable boat that is a dream to steer and easy to single-hand.

J/97E

The J/97E is the first ‘J’ in 25 years (under 32’) to combine standing headroom for family cruising in a high-performance design. Its modern innovations make sailing easier: an asymmetric spinnaker, retractable bowsprit and a furling, non-overlapping jib. J/97E accommodates more crew than it takes to sail her, and
was named IRC Boat of the Year in France.

The ultimate daysailer/racer/weekender, J/105 is the boat 90% of the people should own if they live near where they sail. J/105 has the cockpit of a 45-footer and an enclosed head, small galley and four large berths. A double-handed Fastnet and Bermuda winner.
