About this J Boats J70


Proving the ease of handling this graciously used J/70 has been day sailed and club raced by a team in their 70s who are now retiring from sailing.  Fully equipped with engine, trailer and a good inventory of sails she is ready to go!

Manufacturer Provided Description

The J/70 introduces a new dimension of fun, fast sailing in a stable, easy to own boat. A natural evolution of its J pedigree, the J/70's 22-foot long waterline with high aspect, all carbon rig and deep, lifting bulb keel provides spirited performance and stability that feels like a much larger boat. Knifing through the water upwind with confidence and ease, the J/70 has that legendary “J” feel - light, controllable with a wide-groove to sail consistently fast. With an adjustable cascading backstay, one has total control over sail shape and dynamic rig tension across the full range of conditions, making it not only easy to change gears on the J/70, but faster and safer. Off the wind, J/70 will simply light-up the crew with a smile! Set the masthead asymmetrical spinnaker off the retractable carbon bowsprit, point the J/70 where you want with its deep, high-aspect rudder and the J/70 pops up on a plane and takes off in a moderate breeze.

J/70 is all about making sailing inclusive, not exclusive. With its easily driven hull, large cockpit, and manageable three sail inventory, the J/70 is perfect for three adults, two couples, or four juniors. Sailing is about friends, it’s the joy of sharing the experience with others. When your family and friends can enjoy sailing in all weather, the return on investment will be high.

In today’s crowded harbors, it’s not always possible or economical to own a permanent mooring, marina slip or rent space in a dry lot with crane. J/70 offers a practical solution. Launch at the local boat ramp, raise the lightweight all carbon rig, lower the lifting bulb keel, hoist the sails and off you go on a sailing adventure in less than 30 minutes. The only limitations are how far you want to drive and willingness to camp in the great outdoors. Trailerable behind a family minivan or SUV, you can go anywhere.


Creature comforts come in many forms on the J/70. The 11' long cockpit and moderate height boom allow easy crew movement across the cockpit while tacking and jibing. For sitting and hiking comfort, mid-height padded backrests/lifelines run cockpit length, making J/70 one of the most comfortable boats to helm without having to rely on hiking straps to keep you in the boat.

The small cabin below is a bonus, and provides weather protection, a place to nap and personal privacy... essential to keeping everyone happy if spending a day on the water. And, for children safety is paramount.

The J/70 has convenient, on-deck stowage for an outboard engine, providing safe, quick access to the transom. This means one can sail further away from home port without worrying about paddling home or hailing for a tow.  Race Committees can start races on time and finish them later in the day without having to arrange towboats.  And, if a storm hits quickly, sails can be dropped, the engine turned on and the crew can head for home fast and safely.

  • As this J/70 has been kept on a mooring for the 3-4 months per year that she has been in service it has been necessary to paint the bottom.  Petit Tri-lux ablative paint has been used.  Even though the paint is ablative to avoid build up the owner has sanded it periodically so the paint is relatively thin and could be sanded off.
