J/Boats and J/Composites are pleased to announce the new J/99, a 9.9 meter (32.9') crew-friendly, offshore-capable racer currently under development at J/Composites in Les Sables d'Olonne, France.

The J/99 is the newest addition to the J/Sport range, combining headroom and comfortable interior accommodation with the tiller-driven responsiveness of a sport boat. The sail and deck plan are optimised for easy handling with fewer crew, and incorporate the latest developments from the award-winning J/121 and the new Offshore Sailing World champion J/112E. The interior features twin aft cabins, a proper sit-down forward facing nav station, an L-shaped galley, and a private forward head with sail locker.

Now more than ever, sailors are attracted to adventure-filled, signature events (Fastnet, Middle Sea, Chicago-Mac, etc.) where straight-line speed, sail handling, strategy and weather routing are all equally put to the test. The J/99 is designed to excel in these events (both fully crewed and short-handed) while delivering the exhilarating, family-friendly experience the J Sport range is known for.

"The J/99 opens up a wide range of sailing possibilities," commented designer Alan Johnstone. "The versatile sail plan, balanced hull form and efficient cockpit will work as well for short-handed offshore sailing as for weekend sailing with friends. The J/99 packs a lot of performance and versatility into a manageable size and budget."

The J/112E and J/121 are both available for viewings at Key Yachting, the UK & Ireland J Boats agent for over twenty years, based in Hamble, Southampton. The company have cultivated a large J fraternity in the UK & Ireland, with over 70 boats berthed along the South Coast. For more information on the J range email .
