Find out why hundreds of J/109 sailors simply "love" their boats. Perhaps one of the best racer/cruisers J/Boats ever built? History and time will tell. The record so far speaks for itself. Well-sailed, the J/109 is difficult to beat under any handicap system- PHRF, IRC, ORC/ORR. In One-Design sailing, you simply learn how to sail faster, you have no limit to how well you can do. So, when you do go handicap sailing, practice pays!
J/109 features the popular carbon fiber retractable bowsprit and asymmetric spinnaker system and a cruisable 2-cabin interior layout with standing headroom. She is designed with a very low VCG, long waterline, and generous sail plan 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. In short, a 35 footer that gives you the ultimate in sailing flexibility- cruising, racing, day-sailing or weekending with family and friends.
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.
Offshore All-around Performance
Today, J/109s are actively raced in offshore long-distance races around the world, including Australia, Hong Kong, Caribbean, America, Europe and the Mediterranean and have won either their class or overall trophies in just about every major offshore event.
Comfortable Euro-style Interior
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.
"Queen Bee" has a solid race heritage. Please note, South Beach Harbor berths are not transferable.
