About J/Boats

YachtSpot is the Australian and New Zealand distributor for the renowned range of performance sailing yachts from J/Boats. Our head office is in Sydney, and we have distributors in Perth and Auckland.

J/Boats reward their owners with superior handling and performance. That means winning ways on the racecourse and fast, safe passages on coastal or offshore cruises. Every J has a low centre of gravity for stability and sail-carrying ability, a balanced hull shape for a sea-kindly motion, and a spade rudder for the ultimate in maneuverability.

The J/Boat range predominantly have retractable carbon bow sprits to efficiently fly asymmetric spinnakers. J/Boats pioneered this asymmetric sailing system which not only enhances performance but also provides ease of handling.

 It is said there are two types of sailors in the world - the young and the young-at-heart. There is a J/Boat perfect for you.
