GET USED TO HAVING FUN
A fun craft that is both simple and technical, capable of making 20 knots under spinnaker, this yacht is supported by sociable and united national classes. Her construction is dedicated to sailing enthusiasts, while her size means you can easily head out sailing whenever you fancy.
BENEFIT FROM CUTTING EDGE EQUIPMENT
The strengths of this yacht primarily rely on its latest generation equipment, with a carbon rig and top of the range construction technology, which make it lightweight and stiff with great longevity.
SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE
When the weather is fine, why wait to make the most of it? A small sportsboat measuring 7m, the J/70 is light on the helm, easy to transport and simple to launch and rig. Her keel is retractable, meaning she’s easy to tow with the reduced height on the trailer.
BE PART OF A PERFECT SPORTS ORGANISATION
Its small manufacturing tolerances are a guarantee of sporting equity for all. The network of owner classes offers events of a regional and international scope in each country.
Even when used intensively, the build quality of the J/70 guarantees unrivalled resilience and solidity, which translates as a high resale value. Thanks to a genuine ‘racer’ culture, a constant eye for detail, highly selective materials and strict production control, this boat is bordering on perfection in operating terms.
MAKE THE MOST OF THE ERGONOMIC COCKPIT AND CABIN
The cockpit is clean, well designed, uncluttered and easy to move around. With her small cabin, you’re protected from bad weather and also all the equipment for the boat and the team can be easily stowed and transported inside. The outboard engine can be fully stowed down below while sailing.
GET INTO RACING
The characteristics of the J/70 make her accessible to all. She is perfectly suited to crews of all ages and genders, with light sheet loadings and great cockpit design, layout and equipment. The strict rules on ‘no hiking’ mean that those who don’t take part in intensive training can still easily compete against more honed crews.
International and Australian Class Associations
The presence of J 70 classes in over 30 countries around the world means that a very dynamic one design race circuit is prevalent.
Respecting the Class
J Composites devote a great deal of attention to respecting the class measurement. With over 10,000 sportsboats built in over 30 years, the J Composites yard has fully mastered manufacturing tolerance.
One design requires specific equipment in terms of deck hardware and sail area, which translates as an interesting racing programme, whilst limiting the expense of the arms race.
The close competition during races is evidence of the precise construction for every craft. As such thrills are guaranteed around the course and during the mark roundings!
Transporting the J/70 is made possible by its retractable keel. This enables the boat to sit lower on its trailer making it easier to transport.
Deck Stepped Mast
The J/70 boasts a deck-stepped carbon mast, which means the process of stepping the mast is considerably easier as it requires just two people.
Lifting your J/70 is hassle-free thanks to its central sling points, meaning the operation can be completed in a matter of minutes.
Once the boat is on her trailer, she can be easily towed by any family car or SUV. The J/70 can also be ramp launched.
The materials for the sandwich and infusion composite construction are selected with precision so as to achieve the best possible combination of lightness/solidity on the market.
The retractable keel comprises a 316L stainless steel structure and a lead bulb. The whole thing is encapsulated in a molded structural composites form.
The J/70 is delivered with a carbon mast boom and bowsprit, benefiting its handling, and making it responsive and stiff. Furthermore, it can be easily stepped and rigged by 2 persons.
The carbon parts of the J/70 are made in an autoclave to guarantee unrivalled longevity.
