J Boats

J Boats

The J/Boats company had humble beginnings but over the past 40 years, they have built winning designs which are raced by movers and shakers in the marine industry and beyond. Rod Johnstone built the first J/24 in his garage in 1975 and by 1977, he and his brother Bob were in business building sleek boats that developed a reputation for being crazy-fast. Today, the Rhode Island company builds boats from 22 to 65 feet for day sailing, cruising and mostly one-design racing. Any serious racer will know J/Boats and many will have owned one at some point. J/Boats are precision machines that command a premium price and will range from $10,000 to $2,000,000, and have sprouted a performance sailing school called J World with five bases around the country.
