Recently, Bruce Hedrick of Northwest Yachting magazine had the opportunity to jump aboard a brand new J/122E, the queen of the new “E” series fleet focused on exciting, performance cruising. Here is some of Bruce’s commentary:“The J/122E is a development of the already wildly popular J/122, the perfect blend of all-around J Boat performance with interior cruising luxury. The “E” is for elegance and evolution in performance design. Why settle for less than sailing where and when you want to in comfort, style and speed?
From its sailor-friendly cockpit with optimized sail handling to the spacious, naturally lit two or three cabin interior, the J/122E is as easy to sail offshore as she is entertaining guests for dinner. Responsive, stable and pure magic to steer, the J/122E is what sailing is all about.
The J/122’s have quickly set the performance standard for dual-purpose 40 foot racer-cruiser sailing yachts both inshore and offshore. Most recently she was the overall winner of the 2014 Rolex Middle Sea Race and class winner of the 2014 Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race. Locally the design has taken the 2012 Swiftsure Cape Flattery Race Overall, 2013 Oregon Offshore Overall, 2013 Swiftsure Cape Flattery Race 2nd Overall (with a broken boom) and the 2014 Swiftsure Cape Flattery Race Overall, all followed by cruising the Pacific Northwest in style.”
