J 88 48 North Boat Test In Many Ways the J 88 feels a lot bigger than she looks


This month, we had the privilege to go out sailing on the new J/88. The first one in the area just started sailing in the last couple of months. Ben Braden, of Sail Northwest, took us sailing and he also happens to be the person who has been racing the boat, if you’ve seen it on the racecourse or on the pages of our Race Reports. We had a perfect afternoon on Shilshole Bay as the entire 48° North team put the boat through her paces in a steady 10-12 knots breeze with flat water.

The J/88 is the family speedster with stability, style and comfort.  Big enough to sport a sit-in cockpit, inboard engine and overnighting interior; and portable enough to be single-point lifted and trailered to your favorite sailing venue.
