Sailing World Boat of the Year 2017 J/112e



The ultimate weeknight club racer is ready to go fresh out of the box and will deliver around the buoys, or on coastal cruises.

For J Boats, it’s simple enough to tack an “E” onto a model and create an entirely new range of boats, especially with its European builder in Les Sables d’Olonne, France, driving the company’s evolution. J Boats designer Al Johnstone says the “E” is for “evolution” or “elegance,” but it could be for “Euro,” as that’s the market for which the design was conceived. Europeans, says Johnstone, prefer a slightly more upscale and detailed interior look, more windows, and a boat they’ll race and happily cruise. Racing aspirations may list second in the brochure, but the J/112E is perfectly suited to the racecourse. The judges say it has “that traditional stiff, upwind feel of a J Boat.” One might be tricked into thinking the J/112E is a knockoff of the successful J/111 one-design more familiar to U.S. racers, but it’s an entirely new boat from stem to stern. It’s shorter than the J/111 by 6 inches, but it’s bigger everywhere else — at the waterline, at max beam, and in the interior with more headroom.
