Designed by Robert Johnstone, the J/100 is another in the long line of fast, east-to-sail J Boats with beautiful modern lines. This model in particular has a huge, comfortable cockpit that's perfect for day sailing with family and friends. Tiller-steered and equipped with a self-tacking headsail on a furler, the J/100 is easy to single hand. The cabin, though spartan, features long, wide berths, massive amounts of storage space and an eclosed marine head, so weekend cruising for two couples or a family of four is definitely an option. Call today for an appointment to see this great sailboat! She is in the water and ready to go!
Theres nothing quite like steering a sleek, fast boat with a light touch on the tiller, the stability of a keel below, being close to the water and sliding through waves with barely a wake or whisper. Times too precious and the alternatives too numerous to put up with any boat less than what will recapture those simple joys of sailing. J/100 is designed to do just that. The comforts that experienced sailors appreciate are part of the package. A two cylinder inboard saildrive hums along at 6.5 knots like a sewing machine, when you can hear it. Why limit your horizons because the wind might die? Theres a bona fide marine head and even a couple of bunks with an option for a V-berth forward for the occasional overnight. A dodger works to extend the sailing season.
If you plan to single-hand the boat or do some relaxed non-spinnaker racing, the Hoyt jib boom shown above works great! Using this system, TERN won what one captain called, the race from hell the 2004 Maine Retired (Age 65+) Skippers Race. In dense fog, torrential rain, lightning, and 40 degree windshifts, the J/100 excelled. No need to overwork the crew or have anyone on the foredeck when theres a self-tacking jib and automatic whisker pole. TERN tacked effortlessly on 10 degree shifts, winning the trophy for the fastest of 38 starters. Five minutes back were larger boats with more crew, big winches and huge genoas.
