Beautiful, responsive, comfortable & fast.


J/122 is a versatile 40 foot performance sailboat with comfortable live-aboard accommodations, a refined deck layout, low VCG keel with a moderate 7.2′ draft. The hull & deck are built using superior infusion molding technology to maximize durability and long term value.  An IRC-friendly cruiser/racer, J/122 offers a completely furnished interior, a simple to manage balanced sail plan, head turning sailing performance and great looks– perhaps the ultimate 40′ day sailing, weekending, racing and cruising sailboat?

Here’s proof. Since their introduction, J/122s have quickly set the performance standard for dual-purpose 40 foot racer-cruiser sailing yachts both inshore and offshore. Racing against the latest 40′ competition, J/122 continues its ability to win in all conditions around the world- Fastnet Race (UK), Island Double (UK), RORC Championship (UK/ FRA), OSTAR Race, Bermuda Race (US), Rolex Big Boat Series (US)
