Easiest High Performance Boat To Sail!

Efficient, Comfortable Cockpit.

Sailors spend more time in the cockpit than anywhere else, and this is where the J/111 shines. There's comfortable seating (with backrests) for six, easy movement afoot with floor mounted traveler and well positioned foot braces, an open transom for easy boarding, and large 60” wheel so the driver can comfortably sit on the high or low side, on any point of sail, yet still see the telltales and waves. All principal controls are led aft and the driver can adjust the mainsheet, traveler and backstay from the helm position. An optional dodger is available to give the crew additional weather protection to extend the season.

Spacious Cruising Interior.

The J/111 has all the essentials below for comfortable overnights and short cruises. The main cabin features an open layout with L-shaped galley, forward facing nav station, a wet locker and two full length settee berths with option for additional fold-up sea-berths. Six can comfortably sit for dinner. Two spacious aft quarter berths are standard, as well as a private forward head and removable V-berth.

 

Less Crew = More Sailing.

Sailboats that are easier to sail are sailed more often. It's that simple. The J/111 is the latest “sport boat” one-design from the company who introduced modern-day sprit sailing to the keelboat world (J/105 in 1991).

A crew of two can fully manage the setting, jibing and dropping of the asymmetrical spinnaker where normally 5-6 are required to manage a conventional spinnaker. With a mainsail on slides, a furling jib and large wheel that gives you fingertip control, the J/111 can be off the dock and sailing in minutes.

This is a boat you can sail with friends and do it with confidence and ease. With the J/111, one's fun is not limited to coastal sailing. Whether double-handing to Mackinac, soloing to Bermuda or flying down the Baja coast with full crew, you can sail the J/111 with complete confidence and control

Sailing for Life in Better Sailboats

Sailing is the ultimate freedom, the experience of being at one with nature and the sea, powered only by the wind and one's imagination. It's one of the few "life sports" that offers both a relaxing escape as well as an invigorating challenge. You pick your level of comfort and excitement. Sailing is never the same twice - each time on the water with your sailboat is a unique adventure that can enrich friendships, strengthen family ties, and refresh one's own sense of well-being. How many other outdoor activities can be shared with three or more family generations?  It's been said there are two types of sailors in the world - the young and the young-at-heart. How great is that?

What a Difference a J Makes

Fulfilling those sailing dreams starts with finding a sailboat that fits you - whether you aspire to sail close to home, cruise to distant shores, or take up the challenge of competitive sailing. Performance differences between sailboats are greater than differences between golf clubs, tennis rackets, skis or cars. There aren't many wooden or metal tennis rackets, skis or golf clubs in use anymore. That's because newer boat designs that perform better and are easier to use are MORE FUN!  A well designed sailboat, like a good sports car, is an extension of its owner. It could take years of sailing other boats to learn the difference that good design and quality make to one's sailing enjoyment. Or you can save time and take advantage of what we've learned and designed into every "J." We invite you to explore our site to learn more.
