Hold onto you hats, J-Boats is now entering the centerboard world with a sleek offering that is bound to be fast. Built to ISO standards for boat crossing oceans in up to Force 10 winds, this boat can also skim across bays in just 3' of water. Twin rudders provide control at all depth and a bronze centerboard adds performance in deeper waters. More than a day sailer, below are 4 bunks, an enclosed head, and a Yanmar diesel, making short cruises realistic. The rig and deck layout are clean and simple but all the gear is in place for racing. Carbon mast and retractable bow sprit are optional.
