A little about the J/109
The J/109 is one of the most popular J Boats competing on a one-design basis across North America and around the world. First produced in 2021, this racer/cruiser offered many J/105 sailors a step-up by providing a full cruising interior as well as standing headroom below. This 34-footer is actively raced and cruised by many of the Class members.
True racer/cruiser dual purpose design makes cruising a J109 delightful. The ergonometric deck doubles as a high capacity cocktail hour platform. Down below the attractive interior boasts a 2-cabin interior with standing headroom. A long waterline, low wetted surface area and (7’) low VCG fin keel provide stability.
