J Boats Releases More Details on New J/70

With the grand success of the J/111, we wonder if the J/70 Speedster will be just as fun.We’ll find out soon with sea trials happening this fall and a full launch in the New Year.

A lot of buzz is being generated for the J/70 Speedster, the next-generation ramp-launchable keelboat. With fleet discussions underway around the world, J/70 is on-track to take the world by storm in 2012.

J Boats is touting the J/70 as a new dimension of fun, fast sailing in a stable, easy to own boat. The J/70′s 22-foot long waterline with high aspect, all carbon rig provides spirited performance and stability that feels like a much larger boat. The boat is said to have the “J” feel: light, controllable, with a wide-groove to sail consistently fast. An adjustable cascading backstay allows total control over sail shape and dynamic rig tension across the full range of conditions, making it not only easy to change gears on the J/70, but faster and safer. Off the wind, set the masthead asymmetrical off a retractable carbon bowsprit, point the J/70 where you want with its deep, high-aspect rudder, and the J/70 pops up on a plane in a moderate breeze.

Additional features include:

Large cockpit with open transom
Deck-stepped carbon mast with single spreaders
Three-sail inventory with masthead A-Sail
Vertical lifting bulb keel
In-cockpit stowage of outboard engine
Easy to trailer and ramp launch
