In case you had not seen the worldwide introduction of the J/99 in last week’s newsletter, here is more information for you to consider. The J/Design team has finalized more details on the deck and interior design that make for a very comfortable boat to daysail, weekend cruise, as well as race offshore short-handed.
The J/99 is the newest addition to the J/Sport range, combining standing headroom and comfortable interior accommodation with the tiller-driven responsiveness of a sport boat. The sail and deck plan are optimized for easy handling with fewer crew, and incorporate the latest developments from the award-winning J/121 and the new Offshore Sailing World champion J/112E.
The interior features twin aft cabins, a proper sit-down forward facing nav station, an L-shaped galley, and a private forward head with sail locker.
Now more than ever, sailors are attracted to adventure-filled, signature events (Fastnet, Middle Sea, Chicago-Mac, etc.) where straight-line speed, sail handling, strategy and weather routing are all equally put to the test. The J/99 is designed to excel in these events (both fully crewed and short-handed) while delivering the exhilarating, family-friendly experience the J/Sport range is known for.
