J/Boats

J Boats introduced the J/122 at the Paris Boat Show last December, for two very good reasons. Paris delivers a heckuva cool atmosphere in which to make a debut and the boat was built in the J/Europe factory in Les Sables d’Olonne, a popular and prominent sailing venue on France’s west coast.

In the mold of its siblings, the J/122 is a high-performance, sprit boat designed to be easy to sail, competitive on the racecourse, and capable of taking the family for a summer cruise. In appearance and proportions it is all J, moderate in beam by current standards and sporting a low, lean profile.

Accommodations are simple, traditional in layout, and complete in that all components-cabins, saloon, head, galley, and chart table-are of adequate if not generous proportions.

As have all its antecedents, the J/122 reflects J Boats’ current thinking on how to get the most fun sailing.
