Expand your sailing horizons.
The comforts that experienced sailors appreciate are part of the J/100 package.
Why limit your horizons to the local harbor because the wind might die? Nothing like a two-cylinder inboard saildrive with folding prop to get you home safely at a steady 6.5 knots—the saildrive so quiet it hums away as softly as a sewing machine. For an afternoon sail, you can set your sights 15 to 20 miles away and still be home for dinner.
And the J/100 extends your sailing season as well.
Why limit sailing to summer months when some of best sailing days can be found in spring or fall? Few day-boats offer crew protection from the cold wind. Not so with the J/100, thanks to its large protective offshore dodger. Why limit family adventures to the all-too-familiar local area? Thanks to the versatility of the J/100, coastal cruising can be part of your sailing plans.
A self-bailing cockpit, a closed transom for seakeeping safety, lifelines, a bona-fide marine head, teak trimmed storage shelves for books and personal gear, and a comfortable interior berthing arrangement define the J/100 as more than just an open-cockpit daysailer. Two comfortable settee berths and an optional V-berth forward allow four people accommodations for a weekend of harbor hopping, from one good restaurant to the next. The cooler takes care of breakfast and lunch duties admirably.
