About the J/111 model: Described as fast, fun and easy to sail, this J-boat races, day sails and is also suitable for weekend trips. Pure in form and elegant in execution, the J/111 is a beautifully driven, easy to handle speedster that slices to windward at 7+knots and hits double digit speeds downwind. Designed with the avid performance sailor in mind, this yacht is all about sailing value and performance. Described as the fastest J under 40ft this sailboat accelerates up to speed in the slightest of puffs thanks to a generous, high-aspect rig combined with a long and lean hull. Sailing efficiency is gained by maximizing the sail luff lengths and reducing foot lengths to create a balanced, non-overlapping sail plan. Sailing upwind, the J/111's efficient hull form and low vertical center of gravity combine to provide an exceptionally smooth balanced and close winded ride without having to stack the rail with loads of crew. Downwind, with its planing hull shape and powerful masthead asymmetrical spinnaker flown from a retractable carbon sprit, this yacht delivers a light-handling exhilarating ride with one-handed fingertip control on the helm. The J/111 sports a large T-shaped cockpit with open transom, floor-mounted traveler and elegant but rugged moulded in wheel pedestal to anchor the large 60" wheel. The helmsman can comfortably sit to windward to see the jib telltales while easily reaching the mainsheet, traveler and remote hydraulic backstay. The jib trimmer can in quick succession adjust jib sheet tension, jib lead position and jib inhauler angle thanks to conveniently placed controls. The halyards, reef, furler, and sprit lines are also cockpit led to simplify shorthand sailing.
Technology behind the Build: The J/111 is built to exceed the new ISO 12215 structural standard (Cat A) and features an optimized E-glass/balsa vacuum infused laminated hull, an E-glass/Corecell deck, a flange-mounted low VCG bulb keel, a retractable carbon sprit and high aspect rudder with carbon rudder post. The custom Hall Spars auto-claved carbon mast is lighter, stronger and has lower weight distribution than conventional rigs. This yacht is designed and engineered towards centralizing and lowering the weight of all critical components both above and below decks, to optimize the on-the-water performance.

Manufacturer Provided Description
The J/111 is a sleek, speedy, one-design 36 footer that is the ultimate day sailing, racing and weekend cruising sailboat. J/111 is an easy-to-handle, comfortable sailboat that accelerates quickly, slices to windward at 7+ knots and hits double-digit speeds downwind. The J/111 has all the essentials below for comfortable overnights and short cruises. The main cabin features an open layout with L-shaped galley, forward facing nav station, a wet locker and two full length settee berths with option for additional fold-up sea-berths. Six can comfortably sit for dinner. Two spacious aft quarter berths are standard, as well as a private forward head and removable V-berth.The J/111 is designed to be the best performing, easiest-to-sail boat of its size on the market, while offering the creature comforts needed (6' headroom) to satisfy the occasional overnight cruise. It's all about versatility and the joy of sailing - how to have the most fun out of the time and resources invested. This is the J Boats formula for success in building local one-design fleets and it's a pretty simple formula. Generally, there aren't enough owners in one area who can rationalize the expense of campaigning a single purpose (non-versatile) racing sailboat. There may be 20-30 owners nationally who are willing to fund a traveling program to a pinnacle event like Key West Race Week, but without the versatility to appeal to many owners, local fleets never reach the critical mass needed for long-term success. The J/111 is the next generation one-design J/Boat to fulfill the legacy of its predecessors. J/111 accelerates up to speed in the slightest of puffs, thanks to a generous, high-aspect rig combined with a low wetted surface hull. Sailing efficiency is gained by maximizing the sail luff lengths and reducing foot lengths to create a balanced, non-overlapping sail plan. When the wind and waves are up, J/111 pops up on a plane and delivers the dinghy-like, exhilarating rides that many modern designs struggle to do because of over-tweaking to handicap rules that encourage heavier, non-planing hull shapes. Turning the corner to go sailing upwind, J/111's efficient hull form and low vertical center of gravity kick in to provide the sweet weatherly handling J's are reknown for.The J/111 features an optimized E-glass/vinylester vacuum infused laminated hull and deck, a two metal, low-VCG bulb keel, a retractable carbon sprit, rail mounted shroud terminals (J/122 style), and a low-profile jib furler. Particular care is paid to centralizing and lowering weight both above and below decks, all critical to make the J/111 your ultimate sailing boat.
