2010 J Boats J/95 Lift / Lifting Keel

location icon Hamble, Hampshire, United Kingdom
Year 2010
Length 31'2 ft / 9.50 m
Builder/Manufacturer J Boats

A lift keel weekender with great sailing performance as expected from J Boats. Rod Johnstone, says 'balance and steering control are two of the key features which we feel will set the J/95 apart'. PBO Magazine said 'J Boats seem to have found a space in the markets and filled it with a boat that brings back the pleasure of sailing'.

Just Is is well presented and equipped. Her black hull looks stylish and elegant and has the advantage of a lifting keel and twin rudders  - perfect for exploring shallow harbours or getting in over the sand bar earlier than everyone else. She has been professionally maintained each year by her current owner, since he purchased her at the end of the 2013 season. This lovely J/95 is available to view in Hamble.
