Brand New Build - Australian Made 


The first of the Australian-made JPK 11.80's has been launched in Melbourne for owners Denis and Chris McConnell. The JPK 11.80 is offered with either tiller or twin wheel options with Denis selecting the twin wheel featuring twin rudders and 9/10 Axxon carbon rig.

Designed with a perfect balance between performance and comfort, this yacht caters to a wide range of sailing enthusiasts. It is a true marvel in terms of versatility as it showcases its cruising attractiveness. Its sleek and modern design, combined with advanced technology and top-notch craftsmanship, make it a standout choice in the yachting world.

Additionally, as Denis said Having the opportunity to visit the Innovation Composites production facility in Nowra and speak with JPK Pacific and our Race Yachts Broker, Jason Rowed, on all the technical aspects of the new build was certainly a big plus in my decision on an Australian made JPK 11.80.
