Overview

More Fun With Less Crew

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 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.

The Success Story Continues

Introduced in 1991 as the first modern day keelboat with bow-sprit and asymmetric spinnaker, J/105 today is the most successful one-design keelboat class over 30' in the USA with over 680 boats sailing worldwide. The class association is an owner managed organization with strict one-design rules, a world class web site, and offers the best and most active one-design racing in the USA today.

The class rules include an owner-driver rule, tight restrictions on Category 3 professionals, and annual sail purchase restrictions to keep racing affordable and as Corinthian as modern one-design can be.

In Europe, J/105 has proven to be the double-handed boat of choice for offshore sailors and has won the RORC Yacht of the Year and scored notable double-handed wins in the 2007 Rolex Fastnet Race and the 2007 Rolex Middle Sea Race.

Owners rave about how well the boat sails in even the most extreme of conditions-- Trans-Atlantic Race Winners can attest to its seaworthiness!

Less Demands + Fun = Best Sailing Value

A fun and forgiving performance boat that is easy to sail, J/105 offers low maintenance with a simple layout, has great performance, a large cockpit, predictable handling characteristics and makes no pretences of being a distance cruiser or live-aboard. There is less to maintain as all the extra
 

 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 J105 is more fun to own.

Considering how you will actually use your boat, no other choice of sailboat today makes as much practical sense to own as the J/105. It is simply the best sailing value available and as an added bonus it offers instant access to a whole new network of sailing friends and events throughout the US and Europe.

J-105 Leads the Pack

J/105 is way ahead of the pack when compared with any of the modern 'retro' daysailors in terms of performance, ease of handling, construction, sailing comfort and great looks.

Plus, J/105 offers offshore capability and weekend accommodations for the occasional overnight. The bowsprit and asymmetric spinnaker system make downwind sailing simple for two people and requires fewer crew for racing. No need to organize a football team of crew to sail!
