2021 J Boats J/88

Year 2021
Length 29'2 ft

The J/88 is not only comfortable and easy to handle, but her sweet balance, effortless speed and comfort will maximize your sailing fun. J/88 truly hits the sweet-spot in J Boat’s new 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. Plus, there's no wood on deck, minimum systems, and a simple functional interior so you can maximize sailing time and minimize on-board maintenance.

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 light weight carbon fiber mast - deck stepped configuration for easy rigging and tuning as well as for keeping the water out and the main cabin dry.

The 6.5 ft fixed keel with molded finish ensures a fair, smooth foil surface with a low vertical center of gravity.  This provides a ride that’s every bit as stable and exciting as the J/88’s speedster siblings - fast upwind with amazing fingertip balance on the helm and exciting planing potential downwind in moderate to fresh breezes thanks to the easy to manage masthead asymmetrical spinnaker and retractable carbon J/Sprit.
