People say the J/22 is the best sailing boat they’ve ever been on. It’s responsive, stable with a fixed lead keel and safe, as much fun to singlehand with main only as it is to plane under spinnaker in 18 knots of wind. J/22 at 1800 lbs can be towed behind an SUV and be launched with the local yacht club hoist. With its easy-to-rig, deck stepped mast, you can be from trailer to sailing in 30 minutes. The key to J/22’s success is its durability. Hulls and decks are built with Baltek cored laminates to withstand years of hard use. 12-15 year old boats routinely win major J/22 championships.
The boat that appeals to all ages and skill levels is now generating more interest than ever before. With new boats under construction and available in Rhode Island, you can have world class speed right out of the box.
