The J/105 fleet consistently draws many competitors, with numerous local events attracting over 30 boats! Over 650 of these boats have been built, truly ushering in the "sprit boat revolution". Powerful mainsails and a non-overlapping jib provide a versatile sail plan which is easily handled with a small crew. The retractable carbon fiber bowsprit tames the spinnaker, while launching the boat to great speeds. When your home is near the water, J/105 may be your ideal sailboat. Count up the number of nights spent sleeping aboard and compare that to the number of picnic sails when you would have liked a larger, more comfortable cockpit. J/105 is the answer. Her large cockpit combined with simple 4-5 berth week-ending layout results in a boat that's easier to handle, more comfortable in waves and more fun to sail for its size. J/105 has the stability, rig and sail controls to handle 15-20 knot winds without the need of reefing. It has the strength and seaworthiness for ocean going passages. Sailing World Magazine's panel of experts selected J/105 as Boat-of-the-Year among racer-cruisers in 1992. Since then over 600+ have been launched worldwide, fulfilling a variety of needs. Enthusiasm for this great boat continues to blossom with an active owner's association and owner maintained web site to help you get the most from your boat. J/105 is the most successful modern one-design keelboat class over 30' in the World. We offer: Skippered Charters Come sailing with us!
