Simple To Sail, Easy-To-Cruise & A Great One-Design Fleet!
Find out why hundreds of J/109 sailors simply "love" their boats. Perhaps one of the best racer/cruisers J/Boats ever built? History and time will tell. The record so far speaks for itself. Well-sailed, the J/109 is difficult to beat under any handicap system- PHRF, IRC, ORC/ORR. In One-Design sailing, you simply learn how to sail faster, you have no limit to how well you can do. So, when you do go handicap sailing, practice pays!
One-Design Class Racing
In addition to extraordinary success sailing the offshore classics, the J/109s enjoy tremendous one-design competition, especially in France (SPI Ouest), England (on the Solent at class events and Cowes Week) and America (Chicago/Great Lakes, Annapolis/Chesapeake Bay, New England/ Long Island Sound).
Comfortable Cruising Interior
The interior features two private sleeping cabins and an option for a pull-out double in the large main cabin. The “L” shaped galley includes a double sink, two burner propane stove and a pressure water system. The nav station is a large sit-down forward-facing console with abundant space for instrument displays. The head is conveniently located aft near the companionway, providing easy access from the cockpit while underway.
Proven Offshore Performance
Today, J/109s are actively raced in offshore long-distance races around the world, including Australia, Hong Kong, Caribbean, America, Europe and the Mediterranean and have won either their class or overall trophies in just about every major offshore event.
