Rosalita is a very clean J/109 with recent updates to keep her at top speed in One Design, PHRF racing, or performance cruising. The boat is dry stored and kept ready to win like she did in the 2017 Annapolis to Newport race and the Chesapeake Bay classic Down The Bay Race.
The J/109 is ideally suited for short handed cruising and racing alike. With all controls led aft to the cockpit and close to the helm a couple can comfortably, and confidently, cruise the boat to any destination. The choice of overlapping or non-overlapping head sails means you can suit the boat to ideal conditions. The interior is well laid out for extended time aboard. Of course, being a J/Boat her fast racing pedigree means you can quickly sail from one destination to the next.
Come find out why Rosalita is a great example of a wonderful Racer/Cruiser!

The J/109 features the popular carbon fiber retractable bowsprit and asymmetric spinnaker system and a versatile 2-cabin interior layout with standing headroom. She is designed with a very low VCG, long waterline, and generous sailplan with the horsepower for competitive racing and stability for relaxed cruising when the racing crew is not aboard. The J/109 fits within the current J/Boat sprit range as a stable, easy-to-sail performance boat with the interior volume necessary for comfortable cruising and a great dual purpose deck layout. The sleek profile and generous sailplan give one an immediate sense of the speed potential of the J/109. The hull profile reveals a long waterline, low wetted surface and a low VCG fin keel (7 feet), designed for excellent stability when sailing short-handed. The deck/cockpit layout is a cross between the J/105 and J/120, the two J/stable-mates that clearly bracket the targeted market for the J/109. Sail handling systems follow the J philosophy of keeping things easy. Halyards and reef lines are cockpit led, mainsheet controls are within reach of the wheel, and inboard sheeting tracks permit the use of both overlapping and non-overlapping headsails. There is ample on-deck stowage, thanks to the removable transom locker, cockpit seat locker and a bow compartment large enough for both the anchor rode and the asymmetric spinnaker. The interior is European-style with 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, 2-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.
