I have recently taken delivery of a J/70 through J/Boats Australia.
The buying process was smooth and actually enjoyable. At every step Ray and Sandra Entwistle provided a level of services that was exceptionally high. Never once did I feel pressured or not listened to. From the order placing to the complex logistics of delivery, I felt like there was an experienced team working on my behalf to make it work, and it did, seamlessly.
Ray and Sandra Entwistle have a very special thing going on at J/Boats Australia. Their enthusiasm and teamwork has all the bases covered. Ray was always available to provide detailed information whilst I deliberated for nearly 2 years. When the boat was delivered Sandra practically assembled and rigged the boat with a meticulous attention to detail, while Ray completed the final tune. The commissioning and after sales follow up, was an experience I would compare to having a factory works team on your side.
The J/70 itself is simply exceeding our expectations. You cannot underestimate the calming effect the spacious and logical layout of the cockpit provides to skipper and crew. The boats safe forgiving nature is building our confidence as we hoped it would as a father/daughter team. We are finding it a perfect combination for graduating out of dingy sailing without losing any of the control, plus some room down below for all the gear. I’m a firm believer it’s the outcome of the research and development you are buying into when choosing J Boats. In summary, I would absolutely recommend J Boats for two reasons; the exceptional product, and the opportunity you get here in Australia to do business with J/Boats Australia.
