J Boats newly launched J111 at Sydney Boat Show 2011
Newly launched, the J/111 is a sleek, speedy, one-design 36 footer that is the ultimate day- sailing, racing and weekend cruising sailboat.
WorldWorldwide interest in the J/111 is strong. By June, J/111’s will be sailing in at least ten countries (including Australia and NZ), a remarkably strong debut for this next generation international one-design, and the first JBoat to “go global” in less than twelve months!
How will she sail ? J/111 accelerates up to speed in the slightest of puffs, thanks to a generous, high-aspect rig combined with a low wetted surface hull.
When the wind and waves are up, J/111 pops on plane and delivers the dinghy-like, exhilarating rides that many modern designs struggle to do. Heading upwind, J/111's efficient hull form and low vertical centre of gravity provide the sweet weatherly handling J's are renowned for.
J/111 is for sailors who appreciate extraordinary performance, and the strength and robustness to qualify for ISAF Offshore Certification specifications (the first sailboat to do so globally!)
J/111 is certainly proving the ideal yacht for our Australian conditions - she has the performance and styling we prefer... clean lines, robust build, designed to sail with less crew, and utilising the latest technology (she comes standard with a Hall carbon nano-tube mast).
