Manufacturer Provided Description
J/105 has a large cockpit combined with a simple 4-5 berth week-ending layout that results in two significant owner benefits: (1) A savings of $50,000 in little-used furniture, systems and cabinetry needed for extended cruising, and (2) A boat that's easier to handle, more comfortable in waves and more fun to sail for its size. J/105 has the stability, rig and sail controls to handle 15-20 knot winds without the need of reefing. It has the strength and seaworthiness for ocean going passages. Sailing World Magazine's panel of experts selected J/105 as Boat-of-the-Year among racer-cruisers in 1992. Since then over 600-plus have been launched worldwide, fulfilling a variety of needs. Enthusiasm for this great boat continues to blossom with an active owner's association and owner-maintained web site to help sailors get the most from their boat. J/105 is the most successful modern one-design keelboat class over 30 feet in the world. There are one-design starts in virtually every major sailing center across the US and several class starts across Europe. Singlehanded sailors race and cruise to Bermuda; an older couple enjoys cruising in Maine and winning the Monhegan Race after giving up their Alden 54; and America's Cup helmsman race for prize money around the country in a professional match racing circuit. J/105 makes sailing easier and smoother. No pitching, no rolling about and no panic drills. Gone are feverish routines of course and sail changes. Enjoy the luxury of a dodger while napping on full-length cockpit cushions. Only one jib to tend. Roll it in or out. The spinnaker is contained in a snuffer. Jibing is a one person operation. Simply let go the old sheet, then trim in the new one. Good-bye big racing crews and foredeck work. Hello fun and relaxation. Whether it's blowing 5 mph or 20 mph, sailors will want to set J/105's asymmetric spinnaker - even with just two people aboard.
