Sailing Comfort with Speed to Burn
J/88 truly hits the sweet-spot in J Boats' new generation of performance sprit boats. This mid-sized 29' (8.8m) family speedster is fast, fun and stable with the security and comfort of a sit-in cockpit, inboard diesel, overnighting interior and onboard head.
J/88 is all about the joy of sailing - the exhilarating feel of a boat that responds instantly to slight changes in trim and course. The joy of sailing a well-balanced boat upwind in a breeze and then hoisting the masthead A-sail and flying over the waves downwind, with only a few fingers lightly holding the tiller. When the wind dies to a whisper, the J/88 with its high aspect, non-overlapping sail plan (no genoas), has the sail power and low hull resistance to ghost along while other have to motor.
Handling the J/88 is a Breeze
The mainsail and furling jib can be deployed in minutes. All halyards and sheets lead to the cockpit, and the primary winches are within reach of the driver - so solo tacking is an option without need of a self-tacking system. When you're ready for turbo-mode, the asymmetric spinnaker, flown from a retractable carbon bowsprit, can be hoisted, jibed and taken down by just a two person crew.
Performance and sailing comfort result from stability, and the J/88 is optimised where it counts to provide a smooth ride: a two-spreader, carbon fibre, deck-stepped mast and a 6.5' (1.98m) fixed L-shaped keel with low VCG (vertical centre of gravity) lead bulb. This combined with a balanced, efficient hull form explains why the J/88 has such exceptional directional stability and control, even in challenging conditions.
