Overview

 

J/70 - World's Fastest Growing One Design, Trailerable Speedster!

Easier to trailer, rig and ramp launch.
The J/70 Speedster (22.75 feet) is J/Boats' first fully ramp-launchable, keelboat - designed to fulfill a growing need for an easy-to-own, high performance one-design that is exciting to sail, stable enough for the entire family, easy to tow behind the family vehicle, to rig in the parking lot, ramp launch and sail.  Plus, J/70 is built to last.
 
Key J/70 Features.
- Large comfortable cockpit with open transom.
- Deck-stepped lightweight carbon mast for easy rigging & stepping.
- Inexpensive three sail inventory with masthead A-Sail.
- Vertical lifting keel.
- Small cabin for storage and personal privacy.
- Easy to trailer to regattas, ramp launch and store at home for winter.
- Only 1,750 lbs & low road height so most 6 cyl vehicles can easily tow.
- Fits inside most standard garage doors!
 
More comfortable to sail on deck.
The 11' long cockpit and moderate height boom in the J/70 allow easy crew movement across the cockpit while tacking and jibing. For sitting and hiking comfort, mid-height padded backrests/lifelines run cockpit length, large cockpit floor mounted toe-rails for secure foot bracing and comfortable seat height and ergonomics makes J/70 one of the most comfortable small keelboats to helm.  No need for hiking straps to keep you in the boat. Plus there are strict class limits on how to hike to make the boat less physical to sail.
 
 
Easy for the entire family to join in!
With mandatory on-board jib/spinnaker sheet winches, a feather light responsive helm and confidence building stability, you can enjoy sailing with friends and family more often.  Kids or seniors will feel as comfortable and in control steering or trimming sails, whether for daysailing or evening sunset races, the J/70 will be both exciting and forgiving.  When you are ready to take it to the next competitive level, the competition at national events won't disappoint.
 
On-board privacy, protection, storage & auxiliary power
The small cabin below is a bonus in any small keelboat, and the J/70 cabin is just large enough to provide weather & sun protection, a place to nap and/or for personal privacy... essential to keeping the whole crew happy if spending a day on the water.
