The Exquisite J/45 Premiering at Cannes Yachting Festival this September

Change your plans and prepare to amend your bucket list as the new and exciting J/45 makes her premiere at Cannes high-end trade show, 7th-12th September. This year, the Festival will host almost 600 boats, 430 exhibitors and over 140 previews.

The Cannes port in the city’s heart is waiting to welcome you to the sun-drenched coast of the Côte d’Azur to enjoy a fantastic trade show nestled in the French Riviera. The only thing to rival this stunning location is the greatly anticipated arrival of the J/45. This new 45′ offshore sailing yacht promises to change all of your sailing plans with its leading-edge hull design and refined interior, raising the bar on cruising comfort and performance like no J before it.

The J/45 offers total duality in the combination of comfort and performance, meaning ready sailors can long cruise to faraway destinations and race once in situ. Sailing enthusiasts can have it all with this new evolution.

The J/45’s sea-kindly motion and comfort are built-in. The combination of advanced composite construction, an easily driven hull shape, and low centre-of-gravity result in the stability and smooth sailing motion generally reserved for larger yachts. Comfort at sea is also a function of how much effort is needed by the crew. With the J/45, the same Main and Jib Combination that is used in 6 knots can also be depowered to be used in 20 knots, without needing a sail change.

The J/45 breaks new ground for J/Boats for interior design and comfort thanks to French interior designer Isabelle Racoupeau. Great boats don’t happen overnight. They evolve from the collective experiences of designers, builders, and owners to become state-of-the-art. The J/45 is such a yacht, building upon the experience of 15,000+ J’s built since 1977 that have taken their owners to the far reaches of the planet.

With the green light to travel – discover, socialise, get lost in the ambience of the city and fall in love with the J/45. Make your dreams of Caribbean cruising and regatta’s a reality.

Our friendly expert team will be ready and waiting to see you at Cannes to unlock your sailing possibilities. We recommend booking an appointment and tour in advance to avoid disappointment. +44 (0)23 8045 5669.
