Southampton Boat Show- Displaying J/70 and J/112E

J/112E sport cruiser sailing(Southampton, England)- Key Yachting Ltd will be exhibiting the J/70 and the new J/112E sport-cruiser at the Southampton Boat Show from 16th September. Step aboard these boats on marina berths 431-435, the show runs until Sunday, the 25th of September.

The Famous J/70 Sportsboat
The J/70 is J/Boats’ first slipway-launchable keelboat- designed to fulfill the growing need for an easy-to-own, high-performance one-design, that is exciting to sail, stable enough sailboat for the family, and built to last. A natural evolution of its J pedigree, the J/70’s 7m of sailing length with high aspect, all carbon rig and deep lifting keel, provides spirited performance and stability that feels like a much larger boat. J/70s starting at J/Cup on the SolentThere are now 70 boats sailing in the UK, with an active class association and one design programme. 25 boats are sailing Cowes Week. Plus, there are now over 1,100 J/70s built worldwide.  Learn more about the J/70 speedster here.

The Spirited J/112E Sport-Cruiser
The J/112E is the newest addition to J/Boats’ “E” range of versatile performance sailing yachts. At our most popular size of 36 feet, the J/112E features a spacious two-cabin, aft head accommodation plan and a comfortable, ergonomic cockpit. She is as well-suited for the annual family cruise as she is racing under IRC or sailing short-handed through rough weather. Like the new J/122E, the 112 benefits from significantly more natural light by way of large port lights and optional hull ports. The varnished walnut finish adds just the right proportion of classic, wood accents without taking away from the incredible sense of space.

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 centre of gravity results in a smooth, sea-kindly motion– more like that of a 40 footer.
