No question the J/112E is fast. How fast? While designed principally for “sport cruising”, in the few major races it has participated in both Europe and in America, she’s won her fair share of silverware.
36 feet is a magic size in the J/Boats line-up. With a spacious two-cabin accommodation plan and a comfortable, ergonomic cockpit, the all-new J/112E is as well suited for the annual cruise as she is sprinting. Versatility in sailboat design means not only a sailboat that can do many things, but one that can do them across a wide range of conditions, both fair and adverse.
Owners have been sailing their J’s offshore for years and their enthusiastic feedback has fueled J/Boats’ continuous pursuit of designing the world’s most comfortable sailing boats. Comfort at sea means more than nice backrests (which by the way the J/112E has). “Sailing comfort” means sailing without stress – like having clear visibility from the helm station; easy access to vital sail controls to allow short-handed sailing; a smooth sea-kindly motion that’s easier on the stomach; numerous handholds and foot braces both above and below decks for secure movement; and a highly maneuverable boat that is easy to dock or moor in tight places. Sailboats that inspire confidence (and reduce stress) inspire their owners to sail more. Maybe that’s why J/ sailors spend so much time sailing.
