Sloop-rigged, J/Boats J/65 is long and lean with low wetted surface, allowing the boat to be easily driven with a moderate sailplan in light airs. To make target cruising speeds of 9-10 knots, J/65 wont be as dependent upon auxiliary diesel power as most vessels in her category. A graceful sloping sheerline, and flared topsides allow for a sleek and purposeful silhouette and a dry, comfortable ride. The large, protected aft cockpit offers plenty of space to get comfortable as well as great protection offshore. J/65s versatile sailplan accommodates both a cruising set-up with main and roller-furling small jib, and a powered-up performance program with overlapping headsails and asymmetric spinnakers tacked to the stem or flown from a carbon spinnaker pole. All it takes to hoist, furl and trim the sails is to push a few buttons.
