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!
Bob Ross is going to Newport RI to sail her on the 9th of November.
Anyone want to join Him for a demonstration sail?

Bob will give a full report when he returns.
The J/112E Arrives
Bristol, Rhode Island
It was like an early Christmas at International Marine yesterday afternoon as Jorge Borges and his team peeled away the shrink wrap to reveal the latest collaboration between J Boats and J Composites – The New J/112E.
The boat looks fantastic! Within hours of arrival, the keel was installed and mast assembled, and sea-trialing begins tomorrow. Stay tuned for many more pix to follow. If you haven’t already made arrangements to visit and sail on the J/112E, please contact Bob Ross at Sail Northwest. J Boats plans to be sailing the J/112e through November 10th.

Picture in your mind a sailboat with all the interior space and amenities that’ll impress your non-sailing friends and family, a cockpit that is big enough to entertain at the resort marinas and a large open walkthrough transom and freeboard that promotes pleasing lines, a pleasure to the eye no matter how salty the gaze. Now, set that image aside and picture a sailboat with a well-designed cockpit layout and enough space for each crew member to do their job without being on top of each other, a retractable sprit for the A sail, below deck roller furling, quality and properly sized Harken deck hardware with every control line and purchase you need to properly adjust your sails. Now, set that aside and picture a third boat, one with easy visibility from inside the cockpit at her twin wheels, build quality that will give you the confidence to handle any passage, interior design that is comfortable and safe both inshore and offshore, a stainless grid system built into the hull integrating the mast, keel and shrouds into a platform that’s as strong as you can imagine and a sailplan that is easily handled by a shorthanded crew. Now imagine all three boats above blended into one and you have the Salona 41.
Sail Northwest is excited to add the new builds from C&C yachts to our lineup of well built high performance boats. Contact us to learn more about the C&C 30 OD and the C&C Redline 41.
