The J/95 restores a yachting tradition of fast centerboarders that were as much at home navigating shoal inland waters as they were crossing oceans. As late as the 1960’s, centerboarders dominated offshore racing under the Cruising Club of America (CCA) Rating Rule. Carlton Mitchell’s Finisterre won the Bermuda Race an unprecedented 3 times. In the 50 years since, great strides have been made in hull design, lighter/stiffer rigs, high-tech sails and advancements in cored composite construction. The J/95 combines the best of tradition with modern technology and is quality-built in the USA!
The J/95 enables sailors to keep a good-looking boat in front of their homes. The J/95 has the capability of broadening a day’s sailing range by 5-10 miles. That includes venturing safely outside of inlets into open water… even staying dry and comfortable when a 20-knot sea breeze kicks in. J/95’s large cockpit, the privacy of its enclosed marine head and the convenience of returning home under power if the wind dies, make picnic day sails more appealing to family and friends. Sailing is at its best when the joy can be shared. J/95 has the versatility and the qualities to optimize your sailing experience over a longer season, closer to home.
When you think of all the wonderful places to sail where the water is shallow, it’s surprising that a boat like this hasn’t come along earlier. While the new J/95 can expand one’s joy of sailing just about anywhere.
