The J/92s is a high-performance, affordable 30 footer that is both manageable and comfortable for short-handed and family sailing as well as a fun boat on the race course.
The J/92s hull shares the design pedigree of the J/92, a past overall winner of Sailing World Magazine’s Boat-of-the-Year, and a successful design in its own right with over 170 boats built in Europe and North America. From the 92 platform, the J/92s has been optimized with a newly designed cockpit, deck, keel, rudder, and sail plan with non-overlapping headsails. The new masthead asymmetrical spinnaker is flown from a retractable carbon bow sprit for simple downwind sailing in complete control. The net result is a family-friendly boat with more stability, improved sailing comfort and a noticeable performance boost.
The J/92s has proven popular in Europe with one-design racing in England with strong fleets competing in renowned Solent events like the Warsash Spring Series, Cowes Week and Hamble Winter Series. On the continent, European sailing on 92s’s have been strong in Sweden (part of the Match Race Center), The Netherlands and France– particularly at La Rochelle Week and the famous Spi Ouest Regatta in La Trinite Sur Mer. Several J/92s’s have been “turbo-charged” for the Swiss, German and Italian Lakes, with lighter, taller rigs to accommodate the frequent light-air racing they encounter at higher altitudes.
J/92s is an easy-to-own 30 footer that addresses the need for a mid-range sprit boat with inboard auxiliary and week-ending accommodations.
