New J/95 Centerboard Sailboat is Fit for Shallow Water
J/Boatís new shoalsailer redraws the playing field for fast daysailers.
Introduced last year, the sleek J/95 is a lightweight, 30-foot sloop with a plumb bow, a bronze centerboard, twin rudders, and a Spartan interior. The J/95 is the brainchild of Rod Johnstone and is built by C&C Fiberglass Composites (CCFC) in Bristol, Rhode Island. An ideal option for baby boomers settling in the shallow estuary areas of the Carolinas and Southwest Florida, the race-ready J/95 is a high performance daysailer thatís fun and easy to sail right off the dock. It also offers the potential to take off as a one-design race boat.
