When your home is near the water, J/105 may be your ideal sailboat. Count up the number of nights spent sleeping aboard and compare that to the number of picnic sails when you would have liked a larger, more comfortable cockpit. J/105 is the answer. Her large cockpit combined with simple 4 berth week-ending layout results in two significant owner benefits: (1) financial savings and (2) A boat that's easier to handle, more comfortable in waves and more fun to sail for its size. J/105 has the stability, rig and sail controls to handle 15-20 knot winds without the need of reefing. It has the strength and seaworthiness for ocean going passages.
This Particular 105 was built to be a weekend cruiser and she has never been campaigned on the race course. She has the desirable shoal draft Keel and a perfect choice for those who sail on skinny water.
The J 105 is built utilizing the patented SCRIMP process. This is an acronym which stands for Seemann Composites Resin Infusion Molding Process. It's a new process used in the production of composite materials. This process means that fiberglass and core materials are laid-up without resin. Once hand lay-up is completed, it is sealed in plastic and a vacuum is applied to remove all the air. Resin is then introduced, and the vacuum draws the resin through the composite. The process allows precise control over resin and glass ratios and results in a strong yet lightweight hull.
The deck layout is very clean and is a benefit of the simple design. The T-shaped cockpit is very large and is separated by the main sheet traveler and is within reach of the helm. The helm is a 42 inch Edson wheel which was offered as a factory option.
The reversed transom has a molded cavity and swim ladder for easy boarding. The ample dodger provides protection from sun and spray.
There are two cabins on the J105. The forward V-berth is 7' long and will accommodate two. The headroom is 5'5" in the main saloon. The manual head is to port and has a wash basin with manual hand pump for freshwater. There is a hanging locker to starboard. The galley is to port and the chart table to starboard. Settees on both port and starboard side will sleep two. The storage lockers are located behind the backrests of the settees. The cabin sole is constructed from Teak and Holly. A 20 square inch hatch is located in the forward berth area.
