100% Perfect for a day's sail.  Recapture the Joy!

There’s nothing quite like steering a sleek, fast boat with a light touch on the tiller, the stability of a keel below, being close to the water and sliding through waves with barely a whisper.

One’s standard of acceleration and that feeling of being one with wind, wave and boat probably started on a small dinghy…a Hobie Cat, Sunfish or inland scow. Then as one’s boats got larger, some of the magic faded. Sure, cruising was an adventure and the camaraderie of a winning race crew unforgettable.

But, now it seems there’s less time for such pursuits. Priorities change. Every moment counts. Time’s too precious and the alternatives too numerous to put up with any boat less than what will recapture those simple joys of sailing.

J/100 is designed to do just that.


 The comforts that experienced sailors appreciate are part of the package. A two cylinder inboard saildrive hums along at 6.5 knots like a sewing machine, when you can hear it. Why limit your horizons because the wind might die? There’s a bona fide marine head and even a couple of bunks with an option for a V-berth forward for the occasional overnight. A dodger works to extend the sailing season.

If you plan to single-hand the boat or do some relaxed non-spinnaker racing, the Hoyt jib boom shown above works great! No need to overwork the crew or have anyone on the foredeck when there’s a self-tacking jib and auto-whisker pole.

If the joy of sailing is a priority- the feel of acceleration and response of a good boat- we believe you’ll find this ‘J” to be a "perfect" day’s sail!

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?
