J Boats J 109
A new 35' racer-cruiser, the J/109 features the popular carbon fiber retractable bowsprit and asymmetric spinnaker system and a versatile 2-cabin interior layout with standing headroom. She is designed with a very low VCG, long waterline, and generous sailplan with the horse power for competitive racing and stability for relaxed cruising when the racing crew is not aboard. The J/109 is stable, easy to sail, and a proven performance boat. There is interior volume and amenities necessary for comfortable cruising and a great dual purpose deck layout.
The sleek profile and generous sailplan give one an immediate sense of the speed potential of the J/109. The hull profile reveals a long waterline, low wetted surface and a low VCG fin keel (7’), designed for excellent stability when sailing short-handed.
The deck/cockpit layout is a cross between the J/105 and J/120, the two J/stable-mates that clearly bracket the targeted market for the J/109. Sail handling systems follow the J philosophy of keeping things easy. Halyards and reef lines are cockpit led, mainsheet controls are within reach of the wheel, and inboard sheeting tracks permit the use of both overlapping and non-overlapping headsails. There is ample on-deck stowage, thanks to the removable transom locker, cockpit seat locker and a bow compartment large enough for both the anchor rode and the asymmetric spinnaker.
The interior is European style with two private sleeping cabins and an option for a pull-out double in the large main cabin. The “L” shaped galley includes a double sink, two burner propane stove and a pressure water system. The nav station is a large sit-down forward-facing console with abundant space for instrument displays. The head is conveniently located aft near the companionway, providing easy access from the cockpit while underway.
The J/109 laminates and structure are engineered by TPI Composites to optimize strength and durability without excess weight. J/109s are built utilizing the SCRIMP molding process. This TPI patented process yields hull and deck laminates that are nearly 50% stronger than those built with conventional hand lay-up methods.
The TPI Built J/109 is powered by a Yanmar 3GM30, sail drive engine with two blade folding prop and an 85 liter (18.5 gallon) fuel tank. The steering system features a large diameter Edson wheel with leather grip, a high-aspect spade rudder and self-aligning rudder bearings.
