Presentation

The J/70 Speedster is J/Boats' first ramp-launchable keelboat, designed to fulfil the growing need for an accessible, high performance one-design that is exciting to sail, as well as being stable enough for family outings and built to last. The J/70 is a reliable and safe sportsboat.

Performance is also an integral part of the J/70 concept and its light 795 kg displacement is driven by a 45m² spinnaker, which will delight fans of double figure speeds.

This sentiment is echoed when sailing upwind, where stability is a guarantee of almost effortless performance.

Regarding the handling, the J/70 is once again very easy to use, thanks to the lifting keel and the carbon mast stepped on the deck with a hinges system, the owner is able to handle the launching and stepping of the mast alone and in a record time.

Moreover, at short term, the J/70 is aimed to become an international monotype. The boat is also built across the Atlantic in order to ensure a distribution worldwide.

Like the J/24 some thirty-five years ago, the J/70 is expected to quickly become a one-design classic accross the globe thanks to its contemporary simplicity. The boat is also built on both sites of the Atlantic in order to ensure worlwide distribution.

In terms of setting-up, the J/70 is once again very easy to handle, thanks to the lifting keel and the hinged, deck-stepped carbon mast, which enables to owner to single-handedly launch the boat and step the mast in record time.
