If you know any J70 sailboat owners you also know they are darn passionate about their little speedsters. You might say they are part of a proud tribe. That’s just how it is with J-Boat owners in general.
Launched in 2012, the J70 captured the soul of many. At 22.75 feet, she proved to be darn quick, easy to sail, stable enough for the entire family and truly towable.
Today, the J70 is more popular than ever. You’d be hard pressed NOT to find a J70 event happening somewhere nearby. With over 1300 J70’s sprinting across the water, you are sure to find company, friendships and someone willing to test their race skills for a round of drinks afterward.
The J70 is known as a high performance one design sailboat. She measures out at a tad under 23 long with a 7. 24 ft beam.
Her exceptional performance is attributed to its sharp bow and flat planing sections.
Owners comment on her rugged construction featuring biaxial and unidirectional E-glass fiber construction.
A lot of racing thought went into the J70 design. Controls are easy to reach and sail controls make quick changes possible, thus keeping you in focused control of key race elements.
Add the fact you can easily trailer, rig, launch and garage your J-70. These design features are just a few of the reasons so many people love this boat.
J70 Additional Features
