2005 J Boats J/133

Alameda, California


J/Boats has been leading the cruiser/racer trend for over 25 years, and the J/133 is the embodiment of the J/Boats ethos - setting a new standard for race-winning speed under multiple handicap systems, stability for shorthanded cruising, durability for rough offshore passages, an easy to manage sail plan and performance cruising comfort.

The J/133's generous low SAD sail plan provides performance in both breeze and light airs, and with a low center of gravity, makes for short handed stability while eliminating the need for multiple sail changes across wind speed bands. Her generous cockpit and aft led lines deck layout transit readily from day sailing, to single handling to fully race crewed.

The sea going and well rounded J/133, with carbon wheel and spars is designed for blazing speed with fingertip control, whether carving through waves upwind or surfing at 12 knots downwind.  Long waterline length combined with narrow waterline beam results in a hull that tracks well through the waves with only minimal input from the wheel - all with a brilliantly laid out cruising interior

J Hawk features the coveted performance cruising triple cabin interior and was factory loaded with many upgrade packages including her deluxe satin finished cherry joinery, a well equipped double sink galley with refrigeration, stove and microwave, and Ultrealeather pearl upholstery. Comfortable sleeping for 6 combined with excellent storage systems in each cabin plus port and starboard seating in the main salon provides comfort space and luxury for anything from day trips to blue water passage making.

She includes the Marina Group shore power system upgrade, a full set of Ockams instrumentation with readouts at the nav. station and cabin top as well as her binnacle mounted plotter readout. J Hawk is beautifully appointed and well maintained - and everything you could want in a performance cruiser/racer.
