MANUFACTURER DISCRIPTION

The NEW J/88, a 29' mid-size family speedster with stability, style and sailing comfort 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.

 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 e 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.
