Responding to a growing need amongst sailors for a more comfortable, simpler and easy-to-own daysailer, J/Boats is excited to announce a sleek new 28 footer (the “J/9”) with perhaps the most comfortable cockpit and easiest-to-manage sailplan in this size range.

 Easy-access cockpit with deep, secure 8.4' cockpit seats and backrests, self-draining cockpit and step-on transom for easy swim platform boarding. 
A deck layout optimized for simplicity and efficiency with sail controls led to the cockpit.
20” lifelines and rails with starboard and transom boarding gates for secure boarding from a dock or a launch.
Keel-stepped, tapered aluminum mast with single spreaders. Jib roller furling system with single-line self-tacking option. 
 Tiller steering – more responsive and maneuverable than a wheel, and the driver can comfortably sit with feet braced across the cockpit.  At anchor, simply hinge up the tiller to expand one’s social area.  And for solo sailors a belowdecks auto-pilot is available.
Low VCG (vertical center of gravity) 4.9’ fixed keel standard, with shoal-draft 3.9’ optional.
Auxiliary engine options: inboard diesel, inboard electric, or transom bracket for portable electric or 4-stroke gas outboard.
Interior with main cabin seating, cooler, storage compartments, ventilation from two opening ports and skylight hatch, and a marine head system forward of the main bulkhead with privacy curtain and optional V-Berth package.
Easy to trailer behind an SUV or ship overseas on an angled cradle inside a container.
