Introducing an exciting, new 45’ offshore sailing yacht that may change all of your sailing plans. Leading-edge hull design meets refined interior design to raise the bar on cruising comfort and performance like no J before it.
Effortless, Enjoyable Sailing
The J/45 is a true sailing yacht, designed and built for the sea by life-long bluewater sailors. The J/Boats and J/Composites teams have collaborated to create a special design for discerning sailors seeking an exceptional sailing experience.
The J/45’s feather-light touch on the helm and easy reach of the sail controls delivers pure enjoyment as you sail in perfect balance across the ocean waves. The J/45 can be sailed solo, cruised by 2-3 couples or large family, and pleasure sailed or raced with room for the whole crew. This is an investment grade yacht that won’t require a professional crew to sail, handle or maintain.
Comfort at Sea and at Anchor
The J/45’s sea-kindly motion and comfort are built-in. The combination of advanced composite construction, an easily driven hull shape, and low center-of-gravity results in the stability and smooth sailing motion normally reserved for larger yachts. Quality matters and the J/45 makes no compromise when it comes to critical components like the composite materials, keel, spars, winches, and deck hardware, which all contribute to a comfortable motion while sailing.
Comfort at sea is also a function of how much “effort” is exerted by the crew. With the J/45, the same main and jib combination that performs in 6 knots of wind can be “de-powered” to perform in 20 knots – no sail change needed. This cuts crew work in half compared to constant sail-changing needed on heavier cruisers. The J/45’s exceptional light air sailing capability also means less engine time and a longer range between stops.
The same secure and protected cockpit at sea then transforms into the social center while at anchor – comfortable seats with backrests, a large cockpit table, and easy swimming access off the transom. A large companionway dodger connected to an aft bimini provides protection from the elements.
Great boats don’t happen overnight. They evolve from the joint experiences of designers, builder,s and owners to become state-of-the-art. The J/45 is such a yacht …. building upon the experience of 15,000+ J’s built since 1977 that have taken their owners to the far reaches of the planet on numerous trans-oceanic and around-the-world passages.
Refined Interior Design and Living Space
The J/45 breaks new ground for J/Boats for interior design and comfort thanks to French interior designer Isabelle Racoupeau. Working in close collaboration with the J/Composites Shipyard, Racoupeau has brought her vast experience in cruising yacht design to create a beautifully finished and elegant interior befitting the newest cruising J.
Owners may choose from a two cabin/two head or a three cabin/two head interior arrangement. One can further personalize the interior finish with three choices of wood (white oak, teak, or walnut) and extensive upholstery options. A wide range of onboard systems is available (air conditioning, heat, sound system, etc) to enhance cruising comfort.
