New J105

[] The first boat is out of the mold and assembly is underway for the new 2009 model J/105 at the US Watercraft facility in Portsmouth, RI. It’s a breath of fresh air for this amazing boat and class and we’re excited to be working with US Watercraft's team of talented one-design boatbuilders. Several orders are already confirmed and a few production slots are available in time for Key West 2009.

The J/105 today is the most successful one-design keelboat class over 30 feet in the USA and numbers over 650 boats worldwide. More than just a one-design, the J/105 is a great family sailboat first, a proven offshore double-hander and a boat that's as easy to own as it is to sail. The new 2009 J/105 is built with faired keel and rudder, an updated Euro layout, and a newly class approved Sparcraft mast. Click here for more info on the J/105 and the class association.
