Within 24 hours of arriving in Bristol, the J/112E was launched Friday at Stanley’s Boatyard and shortly thereafter enjoyed a first sail with the J/Team and the happy new owner. Sea-trials and demo-sails are underway! We can say that after just minutes of sailing, this one is special. The 112E tracks beautifully, handles like a charm, and is just so comfortable above and below decks while sailing, you’d swear you were on a much bigger boat.
As one of the prospective owners said yesterday, “I can’t believe how effortlessly this boat goes through the water compared to my 40 footer. I can see everything from the helm and trim the sails myself. It does all the big stuff really well, and I really like all the small details you’ve incorporated into the deck layout and the interior.”
This boat is going to sell out spring production at J Composites, probably in a matter of weeks. It’s that impressive!
