About this J Boats J105


Less Demands + Fun = Best Sailing Value

 Cabinetry and weight of things you won't use aren't there. So instead of varnishing toe-rails and troubleshooting systems you'll be enjoying a sail with friends. With less demands placed on you and your crew J/105 is more fun to own.

Additional Description

When your home is near the water, J/105 may be your ideal sailboat. Count up the number of nights spent sleeping aboard and compare that to the number of picnic sails when you would have liked a larger, more comfortable cockpit, J/105 is the answer. Her large cockpit combined with simple 4-5 berth week-ending layout results in two significant owner benefits: (1) A savings of $50,000 in little-used furniture, systems and cabinetry needed for extended cruising, and (2) A boat that's easier to handle, more comfortable in waves and more fun to sail for its size. J/105 has the stability, rig and sail controls to handle 15-20 knot winds without the need of reefing. It has the strength and seaworthiness for ocean going passages. Sailing World Magazine's panel of experts selected J/105 as Boat-of-the-Year among racer-cruisers in 1992. Since then, 250+ have been launched worldwide, fulfilling a variety of needs. In 1997-98 alone there are nearly 100 new J/105 owners and enthusiasm is building. An active owner's association and owner maintained web site helps you get the most from your boat. There are now local one-design starts across the country and in Europe with active fleets on the West Coast, Lake Michigan, Lake Ontario, The Solent, Chesapeake Bay, Charleston, Texas, Long Island Sound, Newport and Marblehead. Single handed sailors have raced and cruised to Bermuda; an older couple is enjoying cruising in Maine and winning the Monhegan Race after giving up their Alden 54; and America's Cup helmsman race for prize money around the country in a professional match racing circuit.
