J/70 Speedster- The NextGen Family Trailer Sailor


Easy to trailer and ramp launch.

The J/70 Speedster (22.75 feet) is J/Boats’ first ramp-launchable keelboat – designed to fulfill the growing need for an easy-to-own, high performance one-design that is exciting to sail, stable enough sailboat for the family, and built to last. With fleet discussions underway around the world, J/70 is on-track to take the world by storm.

Everyone can relax and enjoy.

Creature comforts come in many forms on the J/70. The 11′ long cockpit and moderate height boom allow easy crew movement across the cockpit while tacking and jibing. For sitting and hiking comfort, mid-height padded backrests/lifelines run cockpit length, making J/70 one of the most comfortable boats to helm without having to rely on hiking straps to keep you in the boat.

The small cabin below is a bonus, and provides weather protection, a place to nap and personal privacy… essential to keeping everyone happy if spending a day on the water. And, for children safety is paramount.

J/70 One-Design Class

The J/70 one-design class rules provide for a 2.5 hp outboard engine (gas or electric). This means one can sail further away from homeport without worrying about paddling home or hailing for a tow. Race Committees can start races on time and finish them later in the day without having to arrange towboats

Since its introduction in March 2012, the J/70 has quickly established itself worldwide with 900+ boats sailing in 20+ countries in 2015.  So, far over a dozen fleets have developed in the USA and over a dozen countries in Europe have one-design fleets.  In addition, fleets are developing in South America (Chile, Brazil & Argentina) and the Pacific Rim (China and Australia).
