“Sleek, Slippery, Sexy Style”
(London, England)- That’s a delicious description of a boat, isn’t it? According to Toby Hodges at Yachting World during his recent video boat test review of the J/111, Toby described the 111 as “sleek, slippery, sexy style” unequalled in any boat her size range. He and Paul Heys further described it as “the turbo-charged 2011 version of the J/105- the first keelboat to start the modern trend in 1991 to sport an easy-to-use fractional rig, sprit pole and spinnakers with the ability to plane”. Toby’s video boat test is on Yachting World’s boat test site. He also did a great interview of J/UK Dealer Paul Heys, commenting on the development of the 111, its meaning to the UK and European markets and its potential for strong one-design fleet development. Enthusiasm continues to build with over 60+ boats sold and one-design fleets forming on the Solent and in France.
