Expand your sailing horizons.
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. Toss in a classic boom tent to extend the "living room" to the cockpit, and the possibilities are nearly limitless-- Rhode Island's Governor believes that is the case!
A self-bailing cockpit, a closed transom for seakeeping safety, lifelines provide comfort and peace-of-mind while sailing offshore.
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, certainly enough for an evening sail. Peanut butter & jelly, chips and Oreo's for the kids? Or wine, fruit and cheese for a picturesque evening sail?
