2005 J Boats J/80

Lymington, Hampshire, United Kingdom


The J/80 has matured to become Europe’s best selling sportsboat.

The enduring success of the boat is as a result of many factors, but relate in principal to its inspirational design and superb standard of construction. The J/80’s high stability and built in buoyancy make it the only sportsboat with a Category B offshore classification. She has a proper lead keel for high stability, a tough two spreader mast, a large cockpit and ‘top of the range’ jib furling system and deck gear. 

#725 has been successful in her current ownership winning the RLYC Thursday night late series 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018. Dry-sailed and well maintained. 

She is ashore at Lymington and available to view by appointment.
