Find out why hundreds of J/109 sailors simply "love" their boats. Perhaps one of the best racer/cruisers J/Boats ever built? History and time will tell. The record so far speaks for itself. Well-sailed, the J/109 is difficult to beat under any handicap system.
J/109 features the popular carbon fiber retractable bowsprit and asymmetric spinnaker system and a cruisable 2-cabin interior layout with standing headroom. She is designed with a very low VCG, long waterline, and generous sail plan with the horse power for competitive racing and stability for relaxed cruising when the racing crew is not aboard. The J/109 is stable, easy to sail, and a proven performance boat. There is interior volume and amenities necessary for comfortable cruising and a great dual purpose deck layout. In short, a 35 footer that gives you the ultimate in sailing flexibility- cruising, racing, day-sailing or weekending with family and friends.
The interior features two private sleeping cabins and an option for a pull-out double in the large main cabin. The “L” shaped galley includes a double sink, two burner propane stove and a pressure water system. The nav station is a large sit-down forward-facing console with abundant space for instrument displays. The head is conveniently located aft near the companionway, providing easy access from the cockpit while underway.
