The J/99 directly targets a growing demographic of sailors who enjoy the fantastic short-handed racing scene.
Launched in June 2019, the J99 is already catching attention in the US and Europe.
Measuring out at 33.5 feet long, the J99 is fun, competitive but manageable sailboat that is clearly designed for double-handed sailing with a miminal crew. It will suit sailors who enjoy both inshore and offshore racing and are looking for a no-nonsense boat to help them shine.
J99 – Design
The J/99 opens up a wide range of sailing possibilities,” commented designer Alan Johnstone. “The versatile sail plan, balanced hull form and efficient cockpit will work as well for short-handed offshore sailing as for weekend sailing with friends. The J/99 packs a lot of performance and versatility into a manageable size and budget.
The sail and deck plan are optimized for easy handling with fewer crew, and incorporate the latest developments from the award-winning J/121 and the new Offshore Sailing World champion J/112E.
J99 Below Decks
The J/99 features a pleasing layout for offshore passage making with perfectly adapted headroom.
Her spacious interior includes two individual and symmetrical aft cabins, enabling you to rest whatever the tack.
In addition, she has a head near the bow, a usable L-shaped galley, front-facing chart table and large folding table for when you are hungry.
It was important to the J/Boat design team to combine sleek, no-nonsense comfort below while assuring performance above.
The J/99 is an exciting new addition to a competitive area of the market.
It’s up against some tough competition, but make no mistake, this new design comes out of the corner fighting.
J/Boats is one of the world’s most successful brands, turning out a string of IRC winners.
The new J/99 looks set to follow suit. In the shorthanded arena this one could be a killer… in the best possible way, of course!”
