The 40' performance cruising & racing standard
J/122 is a versatile 40 foot performance sailboat with comfortable live-aboard accommodations, a refined deck layout, low VCG keel with a moderate 7.2' draft. The hull & deck are built using superior infusion molding technology to maximize durability and long term value.
An IRC-friendly cruiser/racer, J/122 offers a completely furnished interior, a simple to manage balanced sail plan, head turning sailing performance and great looks-- perhaps the ultimate 40' day sailing, weekending, racing and cruising sailboat?
Here's proof. Since their introduction, J/122s have quickly set the performance standard for dual-purpose 40 foot racer-cruiser sailing yachts both inshore and offshore. Racing against the latest 40' competition, J/122 continues its ability to win in all conditions around the world- Fastnet Race (UK), Island Double (UK), RORC Championship (UK/ FRA), OSTAR Race, Bermuda Race (US), Rolex Big Boat Series (US).

No other 40 footer has equaled its unique ability to win in light air, flat water to heavy air and enormous seas on any point of sail. Proof is in J/122's winning record with a wide variety of sailors, from fully-crewed to double-handed.
