Overview

 

NEW J/88- Fast Family Daysailer & Racer

From the J design/build team that launched the J/70 and J/111, comes the NEW J/88, a 29’ mid-size family speedster with stability, style and sailing comfort. J/88 hits the sweet-spot in J Boat’s performance sprit range – large enough to provide the creature comforts of a sit-in cockpit, inboard diesel, overnighting interior and head; and small enough to be single-point lifted, owner trailered and stored.

If sailing is having your cake and eating it too, then the J/88 is like ordering the whole dessert menu. Design highlights include a high-aspect, non-overlapping sail plan (no genoas) with a carbon fiber, double-spreader mast - deck stepped for easy rigging, tuning and keeping the main cabin dry.

 

The 6.5 ft fixed, low VCG keel with molded GRP finish is similar to the J/70’s, ensuring a fair, smooth foil for every boat.  The result is a ride that’s every bit as exciting as the J/88’s speedster siblings - fast and balanced upwind with planing performance downwind in moderate to fresh breezes.

Since J/88's successful launch in July 2013, it's clear she hits the "sweet spot" in the 28-32 ft sailing category.  J/88 has met with critical acclaim in the boating press, awarded the "Best Boat Under 30 Ft" in the 2014 SAILING WORLD Boat of the Year competition as well as receiving high marks from the SAIL Magazine Review team.  With 75+ boats ordered to date, J/88 is well on its way to making its mark in both offshore racing as well as local one-design racing fleets.

Features

 

Versatility + Sailing Performance = Family Fun!

On deck, the daysailing comforts of J/88 include a spacious T-shaped cockpit (J/111 style) with seating and backrests forward of the floor-mounted traveler and a wide-open cockpit aft due to the tiller-steered, transom mounted high-aspect rudder.

 

Adding to J/88’s ease-of-sailing characteristics is an in-deck jib furler, retractable carbon bowsprit and cockpit-led sail controls.  Belowdecks, the J/88 sports a weekending layout with two full length settees, Igloo cooler, galley sink, private head forward of bulkhead and optional V-berth
