J/99 & J/112E @ Fall Boat Shows!
(Newport, RI)- It is that time of year, again! Time to plan a visit to one of the exciting sailboat shows in either the USA or Europe.  Featured in most of the shows are the race-winning cruiser-racers, such as the J/112E and the new J/99.

J/112E sailing offshore

J/112E- the family cruiser that crushed the ORC & IRC Worlds and Europeans
With a spacious two-cabin accommodation plan and a comfortable, ergonomic cockpit, the all-new J/112E is as well suited for the annual cruise as she is sprinting to Mackinac Island or short-handing through rough weather. Versatility in sailboat design means not only a sailboat that can do many things, but also one that can do many of them well across a wide range of conditions, both fair and adverse.

The J/112E joins her sisterships, the J/97E and J/122E, as an exceptional upwind performer. V-shaped bow sections provide superior directional stability and reduced slamming in waves. Freeboard forward and topside flare help to keep the deck dry. A long waterline combined with a low vertical center of gravity results in a smooth, sea-kindly motion – more like that of a 40 footer. For more J/112E sailboat information.

J99 European Yacht of the Year

J/99- the seriously fast, comfortable, offshore shorthanded speedster
Making her Southampton, Newport, and Annapolis debuts, the J/99 is the newest addition to the J/Sport range, combining headroom and comfortable interior accommodation with the tiller-driven responsiveness of a sport boat. The sail and deck plan are optimized for easy handling with fewer crew, and incorporate the latest developments from the award-winning J/121 and the new Offshore Sailing World champion J/112E. The interior features twin aft cabins, a proper sit-down forward facing nav station, an L-shaped galley, and a private forward head with sail locker. Plus, the J/99 has been nominated for European Yacht of the Year Award. For more J/99 sailboat information.

Here are the various boat shows you can visit to catch up with the latest in the J/Boats line-up of offshore high-performance cruisers:
