This popular model from J/Boats offers great one design racing, and ticks all the boxes for sailability, safety and speed. 

Whether single or short handed,  club or one design racing or weekends exploring local stops with family and friends, the J/88's versatility stands out. Juno comes with a v-berth package and a full set of interior cushions. Well maintained she has a new KKMI bottom job from 2022 and List Marine engine service which included a new gear shift mechanism.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The J/88 is a 29’ mid-size family speedster with stability, style and sailing comfort. J/88 hits the sweet-spot in J Boat’s performance 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.  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 will be 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.
