Expand your Bucket List with the NEW J/45
Introducing an exciting, new 45’ offshore sailing yacht that may change all of your sailing plans. Leading-edge hull design meets refined interior design to raise the bar on cruising comfort and performance like no J before it.
Effortless, Enjoyable Sailing
The J/45 is a true sailing yacht, designed and built for the sea by life-long bluewater sailors. The J/Boats and J/Composites teams have collaborated to create a special design for discerning sailors seeking an exceptional sailing experience.
The J/45’s feather-light touch on the helm and easy reach of the sail controls delivers pure enjoyment as you sail in perfect balance across the ocean waves. The J/45 can be sailed solo, cruised by 2-3 couples or large family, and pleasure sailed or raced with room for the whole crew. This is an investment grade yacht that won’t require a professional crew to sail, handle or maintain.
Comfort at Sea and at Anchor
The J/45’s sea-kindly motion and comfort is built-in. The combination of advanced composite construction, an easily-driven hull shape, and low center-of-gravity, results in the stability and smooth sailing motion normally reserved for larger yachts. Quality matters and the J/45 makes no compromise when it comes to critical components like the composite materials, keel, spars, winches and deck hardware, that all contribute to a comfortable motion while sailing.
Comfort at sea is also a function of how much “effort” is exerted by the crew. With the J/45, the same main and jib combination that performs in 6 knots of wind can be “de-powered” to perform in 20 knots – no sail change needed. This cuts crew work in half compared to constant sail-changing needed on heavier cruisers. The J/45’s exceptional light air sailing capability also means less engine time and a longer range between stops.
The same secure and protected cockpit at sea then transforms into the social center while at anchor – comfortable seats with back rests, large cockpit table, and easy swimming access off the transom. A large companionway dodger connected to an aft bimini provides protection from the elements.
Refined Interior Design and Living Space
The J/45 breaks new ground for J/Boats for interior design and comfort thanks to French interior designer Isabelle Racoupeau. Working in close collaboration with the J/Composites Shipyard, Racoupeau has brought her vast experience in cruising yacht design to create a beautifully finished and elegant interior befitting the newest cruising J.
Owners may choose from a two cabin/two head or a three cabin/two head interior arrangement. One can further personalize the interior finish with three choices of wood (white oak, teak, or walnut) and extensive upholstery options. A wide range of onboard systems are available (air conditioning, heat, sound system, etc) to enhance cruising comfort.
Great boats don’t happen overnight. They evolve from the joint experiences of designer, builder and owners to become state-of-the-art. The J/45 is such a yacht …. building upon the experience of 15,000+ J’s built since 1977 that have taken their owners to the far reaches of the planet on numerous trans-oceanic and around-the-world passages.
J owners are passionate about their boats! And, J cruising designs are among the most sought-after for their unique combination of sailing comfort and performance. The J/45 is the culmination of three years of collaborative work between the design, engineering and build teams at J/Boats and J/Composites to create a unique and compelling yacht for today’s sailor.
Built Offshore Tough
The J/45 is built strong by J/Composites (in the Vendee region of France) with the latest advanced composite resin infusion technology – twice as strong as hand-laid fiberglass boats. J/Composites was the first European-based shipyard to adopt the patented SCRIMP resin infusion system in the mid 90’s and is now one of the most experienced sailboat builders in the world for sandwich/infusion construction.
Anchoring the internal structure of the J/45 hull is an extensive composite grid and series of structural composite bulkheads that are bonded to the hull and deck. The J/45’s custom-engineered structure provides exceptional stiffness and optimal strength-to-weight, without sacrificing the comfort of the living spaces below.
Expand your Bucket List
Is there an epic cruise you’ve dreamed of, or a signature racing event you’d give anything to enter? The J/45 can be sailed on her own bottom to almost anywhere in the world. Imagine setting sail from the Canary Islands in November on the ARC Cruising Rally to the Caribbean. Then, cruise the islands with the family over the holidays. Invite your sailing mates to join you in February for the Rolex Caribbean 600. Then, set off on another leisurely cruise. Unplug for weeks at a time or stay fully connected in “remote working” mode. Discover a healthier, happier life/work balance all while exploring the world and checking off your growing bucket list.

J/9 - The Most Comfortable Cockpit Ever?
Responding to a growing need amongst sailors for a more comfortable, simpler and easy-to-own daysailer, J/Boats is excited to announce a sleek new 28 footer (the “J/9”) with perhaps the most comfortable cockpit and easiest-to-manage sailplan in this size range.
“With the J/9, we set out to reimagine how to make sailing easier, more relaxing and more inclusive,” said Jeff Johnstone of J/Boats. “This is a boat you can sail by yourself in just a few minutes, or bring along the whole gang with plenty of room to spare. Escaping to the water and enjoying shared family adventure has never been more important, and the J/9 is the perfect platform.”
The J/9 cockpit has four great corner seats to nestle into and enjoy the day. With friends and family aboard, everyone can find the perfect place to relax. And access aboard has never been easier. A swim platform behind the cockpit allows walk-through boarding, and on those downwind sails home, you can cool off by dragging your feet in the water.
Sailing the J/9 is as easy as hoisting the mainsail and trimming the sheet. Why make it any more complicated? Look around on the water and you’ll notice 80% of the sailboats are sailing with only one sail. The answer is keep it simple! One tiller, one sheet. The big difference with the J/9 is you will be sailing with one sail more comfortably and quicker than most others with two sails or under motor. Ready for the afterburners? Simply unroll the jib and enjoy effortless, stable & smooth sailing from the comforts of the best J/Boats cockpit ever.
The daysailing community has not benefitted from a dedicated design from J/Boats since the award-winning J/100 (33’), which remains one of the most sought-after J’s created. The NEW J/9 offers the cockpit comfort and sailing features of a larger boat, at a price most will find competitive to the best brokerage offerings.
