The J/70 Speedster is J/Boats' first ramp-launchable keelboat, designed to fulfil the growing need for an accessible, high performance one-design that is exciting to sail, as well as being stable enough for family outings and built to last. The J/70 is a reliable and safe sportsboat.
Performance is also an integral part of the J/70 concept and its light 795 kg displacement is driven by a 45m² spinnaker, which will delight fans of double figure speeds.
This sentiment is echoed when sailing upwind, where stability is a guarantee of almost effortless performance.
Regarding the handling, the J/70 is once again very easy to use, thanks to the lifting keel and the carbon mast stepped on the deck with a hinges system, the owner is able to handle the launching and stepping of the mast alone and in a record time.
Moreover, at short term, the J/70 is aimed to become an international monotype. The boat is also built across the Atlantic in order to ensure a distribution worldwide.
Like the J/24 some thirty-five years ago, the J/70 is expected to quickly become a one-design classic accross the globe thanks to its contemporary simplicity.
