Sport Cruising With Breathtaking Speed

Vessel ID# 2784521 Last Updated: 03-07-2024 17:06:28


The J/122e is the perfect blend of all-around J/Boats performance with live-aboard cruising luxury. The "E" is for elegance and evolution in performance cruising. Why settle for less when you can have a 40-footer that does it all? With its sailing-friendly deck layout and cockpit, the J/122e is as easy to manage offshore as she is entertaining dinner guests on the mooring. Quick and responsive, powerful yet stable, and pure magic to sail, the J/122e is what sailing is all about.

A New Performance Standard

With moderate displacement, a highly efficient hull, and a powerful sailplan the J/122e delivers true all-weather performance - able to sail nearly as fast as the wind speed in under 7 knots and yet stand up strong in a blow. The J/122e not only expands your opportunities to sail but expands your sailing range too, routinely able to log 200+ sailing miles per day while passage-making. J/122e is based on the same performance platform as the award-winning J/122, which has logged impressive race wins in some of the world's most prestigious events - including the Rolex Fastnet Race, Newport-Bermuda Race, Chicago-Mac Race, and the Rolex Caribbean 600 and Middle Sea Races.

Easy-to-Manage Sailplan

The J/122e can be easily sailed by a cruising couple or a family crew. The standard mainsail with furling jib configuration makes trimming and tacking a breeze. Then for that extra burst of offwind speed, one can unroll a Code 0 reacher or unsnuff a large asymmetric spinnaker flown from a retractable carbon bowsprit. J/Boats pioneered the modern-day use of bowsprits with asymmetric spinnakers and revolutionized the way people sail. Two people is all it takes to set, jibe and drop a full-size asymmetric spinnaker on the J/122e - achieving the same straight line performance as one would otherwise need a full racing crew to achieve.

Light, Strong & Durable Construction

For unmatched durability, the hull, deck, and primary bulkheads are built using the SCRIMP resin-infusion vacuum molding process, a technology that produces a laminate with nearly twice the strength-to-weight ratios as boats built with common hand lay-up (nonvacuum) methods. The J/122e features a low vertical center-of-gravity (VCG) keel and a composite rudder with self-aligning rudder bearings. Built by J/Composites of Les Sables d'Olonne in France, an area with a rich history of sailing and boatbuilding, the J/122e is CE-certified for Category A, the highest level of certification.

The Inside Story

You'll find plenty of beautiful, functional space belowdecks for relaxing and entertaining. Pick the accommodation plan that's right for your family and the way you sail. The three-cabin/one head layout maximizes privacy space for larger families. The two cabins, and two head layout is the preferred choice for a cruising couple with occasional guests.

The J/122e saloon features two full-length settee berths and a drop-leaf varnished table providing flex dining for up to six people. The L-shaped galley, with a double stainless sin, large icebox, and gimbaled propane stove/oven is secure in a seaway and close to the companionway. The large, forward-facing navigation station has convenient table-top and cabinet storage and easy-access hinge-down panels for a suite of electronics.
