Description/Condition
The J/108 offers everything one could want in a shoal water capable, 35' performance cruising yacht - a full cruising interior, standing headroom, simplified sail handling, large cockpit, and legendary J performance. The J/108 opens up a new world for sailors who previously thought that sea-kindly, high performing yachts were only possible in deep draft configurations. With only 3.9' (1.19m) draft with board up, the J/108 draws less than a J/24 and can take you many more places in style and comfort.J/108 builds on the success of the award winning J/95 and has evolved from the combined experience and knowledge of the J network of dealers, builders and nearly 370 J/109 owners who have short-handed, cruised, and raced their boats around the globe. The J/109 has been one of the most successful performance cruiser-racers in the world. Using the sea-kindly hull shape of her predecessor, J/108 benefits from recent developments in keel and rudder design, simplified handling systems, and the knowledge-base of the J/95.While the concept of "shoal draft performance" may seem ambitious, the delicate balance of hull design, windward performance, off-the-wind speed, and cruising comfort are achievable in a shoal-draft sailboat. The first of J's "Shoal Performance" designs, the J/95, has been widely acclaimed by knowledgeable yachting magazine experts as a "breakthrough" in shoal-draft performance. The J/95 was the sailing industry's first "Triple Crown" Winner-- garnering SAIL Magazine's "Performance" Boat Award, SAILING WORLD Magazine's "Performance" Boat Award and CRUISING WORLD Magazine's "Day Sailing" Boat Award.
