"KESTREL" PROVISIONAL SPECIFICATION (subject to checking)
The J/111 is a light, quick, responsive racing yacht with carbon mast. "Kestrel" is dry sailed and is race ready with many recent upgrades including running rigging, standing rigging and boom cover. She also benefits from an extensive wardrobe of very lightly used 2020 North Sails.
"Kestrel" is ready to re-join the race track under new ownership. PART-EXCHANGES welcome.
North Sails (all new in 2020 & used only for 4 or 5 weekends)
Older Sails (2018), all serviceable and good for training & deliveries
Every now and then a new sailboat comes along that fulfills a real need in the market. The J/111 is a sleek, speedy, one-design 36 footer that is the ultimate day sailor, racer and weekender. J/111 is an easy-to-handle, comfortable sailboat that accelerates quickly, slices to windward at 7+ knots and hits double-digit speeds downwind. Performance to date in a wide variety of sailing conditions has been nothing short of remarkable.
Efficient, Comfortable Cockpit
Sailors spend more time in the cockpit than anywhere else, and this is where the J/111 shines. There's comfortable seating (with backrests) for six, easy movement afoot with floor mounted traveler and well positioned foot braces, an open transom for easy boarding, and large 60” wheel so the driver can comfortably sit on the high or low side, on any point of sail, yet still see the telltales and waves. All principal controls are led aft and the driver can adjust the mainsheet, traveler and backstay from the helm position. An optional dodger is available to give the crew additional weather protection to extend the season.
Spacious Cruising Interior
The J/111 has all the essentials below for comfortable overnights and short cruises. The main cabin features an open layout with L-shaped galley, forward facing nav station, a wet locker and two full length settee berths with option for additional fold-up sea-berths. Six can comfortably sit for dinner. Two spacious aft quarter berths are standard, as well as a private forward head and removable V-berth.
Less Crew = More Sailing
Sailboats that are easier to sail are sailed more often. It's that simple. A crew of two can fully manage the setting, jibing and dropping of the asymmetrical spinnaker where normally 5-6 are required to manage a conventional spinnaker. With a mainsail on slides, a furling jib and large wheel that gives you fingertip control, the J/111 can be off the dock and sailing in minutes.
This is a boat you can sail with friends and do it with confidence and ease. With the J/111 , one's fun is not limited to coastal sailing. Whether double-handing to Mackinac, soloing to Bermuda or flying down the Baja coast with full crew, you can sail the J/111 with complete confidence and control.
