Overview

The J/70 Speedster (22.75 feet) is J/Boats' first ramp-launchable, keelboat - designed to fulfill the need for an easy-to-own, high-performance one-design that's exciting to sail, stable enough for the entire family, AND easy to tow, rig, launch, and sail. Since its introduction in 2012, the J/70 has become the most prolific sport boat in the world with 1500+ boats sailing in 25+ countries. It all started with a boat that's a BLAST to sail!

Key J/70 Features
- Large comfortable cockpit with open transom.
- Deck-stepped carbon mast for easy rigging & stepping.
- Inexpensive three sail inventory with masthead A-Sail.
- Vertical lifting keel.
- Small cabin for storage and personal privacy.
- Easy to trailer to regattas, ramp launch and store at home.
- Only 1,750 lbs so most 6 cyl vehicles can easily tow.
- Fits inside most standard garage doors!

More comfortable to sail on deck
The 11' long cockpit and moderate height boom in the J/70 allow easy crew movement across the cockpit while tacking and jibing. For sitting and hiking comfort, mid-height padded backrests/lifelines run cockpit length, large cockpit floor mounted toe-rails for secure foot bracing and comfortable seat height and ergonomics makes J/70 one of the most comfortable small keelboats to helm.  No need for hiking straps to keep you in the boat. Plus there are strict class limits on how to hike to make the boat less physical to sail.

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.

SAILOR FRIENDLY
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.

TRAILERABLE- EASY TRANSPORT & LAUNCHING
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.


Construction

The J/70 hull plug is finished at the Hudson Yacht facility in Xiamen, China; and the first hull mold will begin construction in September.

The hull form was initially cut with a 5-axis robotic milling machine, and then faired and long-boarded to match hull fairing templates (see below).

Durable tooling gelcoat was then sprayed, sanded and buffed to a mirror finish for final inspection and measurement.

Visible on the hull plug photo is the keel slot insert, which is precisely located at the outset, so that all subsequent molds are matched on this critical dimension.


Deck

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 homeport 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.
