The J/121 is a 40′ offshore speedster that can be day raced or distance sailed by just 5 or fewer crew…. the best short-handed J ever…. capable of winning on any race track while also excelling in daysailing and weekend mode. Here’s a boat, class and program that redefines sailboat racing as a recreation and shared adventure with friends, reducing the focus on specialization and athletic short-course W/L racing. The J/121 fulfills the growing need to simplify life and reconnect with those you really want to sail with on a boat that’s pure magic to sail.


J/121 Distinctions

  • J/121 hull & deck are vacuum-infused molded (SCRIMP process) in temperature controlled environment with biaxial and unidirectional E-glass fabrics using end grain balsa core in the hull for rugged durability and Corecell foam core in the deck for light weight. High density core inserts and additional glass reinforcements are placed in way of highly loaded hardware and components.
  • Laminates are engineered and built to exceed ISO 12215 Cat A and ABS structural standards.
  • White gelcoat hull with double bootstripe.
  • Molded companionway seahood with slider.
  • ORC molded-in toe-rails forward of the mast.
  • GRP molded main bulkhead – structurally bonded and tabbed to the hull and deck with single large opening to forepeak.
  • Off-white deck with a high traction non-skid.
  • Two watertight bulkheads (one in the forepeak and one forward of the steering system) bonded and tabbed to the hull and deck.
  • Heavy duty molded fore/aft and transverse keel support grid, with substantial composite structural beams.
  • Composite mast bearing beam with carbon fiber compression post, bonded and fastened to the deck.
  • High aspect, low VCG “L” keel with lead ballast and epoxy faired and finished fin, flange mounted to a hull recess.
