For those sailors looking for the perfect balance of performance sailing and comfortable cruising, the J/109 perhaps best embodies these characteristics in a manageable size for a couple or a family.
Highly competitive under many handicap systems, this 35'er has had success all over North America and in Europe.
Comfortable to cruise with two cabins, large storage areas and proper sea berths. Her ergonomic cockpit is a pleasure to day sail or distance cruise in.
"WISC" has been locally sailed in Nova Scotia for over ten seasons with careful owners.
The J/109 features the popular carbon fiber retractable bowsprit and asymmetric spinnaker system and a versatile 2-cabin interior layout with standing headroom.
She is designed with a very low VCG, long waterline, and generous sailplan with the horsepower for competitive racing and stability for relaxed cruising when the racing crew is not aboard.
The J/109 fits within the current J/Boat sprit range as a stable, easy-to-sail performance boat with the interior volume necessary for comfortable cruising and a great dual purpose deck layout.
The sleek profile and generous sailplan give one an immediate sense of the speed potential of the J/109. The hull profile reveals a long waterline, low wetted surface and a low VCG fin keel (7 feet), designed for excellent stability when sailing short-handed.
The deck/cockpit layout is a cross between the J/105 and J/120, the two J/stable-mates that clearly bracket the targeted market for the J/109. Sail handling systems follow the J philosophy of keeping things easy. Halyards and reef lines are cockpit led, mainsheet controls are within reach of the wheel, and inboard sheeting tracks permit the use of both overlapping and non-overlapping headsails.
There is ample on-deck stowage, thanks to the removable transom locker, cockpit seat locker and a bow compartment large enough for both the anchor rode and the asymmetric spinnaker.
The interior is European-style with two private sleeping cabins and an option for a pull-out double in the large main cabin. The L-shaped galley includes a double sink, 2-burner propane stove and a pressure water system. Espar diesel heating system plumbed to sleeping cabins and main cabin. Navy blue fabric cushions throughout. Teak & holly cabin sole. Eight opening ports with screens.
The nav station is a large sit-down forward-facing console with abundant space for instrument displays. The head is conveniently located aft near the companionway, providing easy access from the cockpit while underway. Mascerator new 2017.
