THE 40 FOOTER DESIGNED FOR SHORT HANDED SAILING!
The new J/121 has been optimised for sailing long distances with a crew of 5 or less. She satisfies the growing need to simplify the organisation of your racing season by limiting the number of crew aboard.
SIMPLIFY THE WAY YOU SAIL
The J /121 is the answer for those who are looking for a boat offering enjoyment and performance in short handed configuration. She features ballast tanks that can be easily controlled from the cockpit and is able to compete against honed crews of 8 to 10 people!
MAKE THE MOST OF THE OPEN, SPACIOUS INTERIOR
The J/121’s interior is simple, bright and offers a genuine sense of space. The L-shaped galley features an oven and a refrigeration unit, enabling you to head offshore with all the comfort you need.
Forward of the main bulkhead, you’ll find space to stow your sails, which is practical for hoisting or dumping your spinnaker.
EXPLOIT ITS ERGONOMIC COCKPIT
With a large space to manoeuvre and good protection from the elements, the J /121 has been definitively designed for offshore sailing! The helmsman can very easily access the mainsheet, traveller and backstay.
ADMIRE THE PRECISION
To achieve such performance, the construction of the boat has involved great attention to detail.
Precision tooling has been developed by Symmetrix, one of the most highly specialised American firms in terms of the realisation of machined parts. Indeed, the volumetric tolerance is below 0.1mm.
HANDLE THE SAILS WITH EASE
Handling a 40-footer with the minimum crew requires a simplification of the sail plan. That’s why this yacht features equipment designed to facilitate manoeuvres, particularly in tough weather conditions.
