The deck layout and sailplan are optimized for easy handling, while the roomy cockpit accommodates 8+ for fun daysailing. Want to jump into the next adventure-style overnight race or cruise rally and can’t find crew? No problem. The J/99 will reward you with easy, high speed sailing whether solo, twin, or with the whole gang.

Watch the video of Hull #1's first "walk around & sail." Now more than ever, sailors are attracted to adventure-filled, signature events ( FastnetMiddle Sea, Chicago-Mac, etc.) where straight-line speed, sail handling, strategy and weather routing are all equally put to the test. The J/99 is designed to excel in these events (both fully crewed and short-handed) while delivering the exhilarating, family-friendly experience the J Sport range is known for.

The J/99 has a versatile cockpit for both day-cruising and day-racing that can comfortably accommodate as many as 6. The deck layout has several optimized features including a floating jib lead system, 8:1 inhauler system, cockpit-led outhaul, cunningham, and double-ended boomvang.

The 48:1 cascading backstay system leads to both sides of the cockpit. The two self-tailing primary winches are located within reach of the driver. The J/99 is tiller steered with a choice of a single centerline, balanced rudder, or an optional twin rudder configuration (which is popular for offshore short-handed sailing when using auto-pilot). A wheel package is available as an option. The J/99 interior is roomy with clean lines and uncluttered spaces.

The main cabin features two full length settee berths with optional flip-up pilot berths. The L-shaped galley j99 everything for the weekend j99 including a stove, an ice-box and an inboard sink with a pressure water system. There’s a proper sit-down, forward-facing, nav station to starboard.

The drop-leaf main cabin table is a j99 extra, usually seen only on cruising J’s. There are matching double aft cabins with privacy doors.

This versatile layout allows 2-4 crew to sleep on the windward side for good offshore weight distribution, and up to 8 for the occasional inshore regatta or weekend cruise. The forepeak is dedicated for the head and sail storage, and otherwise kept as light as possible.

J/99 Specification Features • High Quality Composite Engineering & Construction: The J/99 exceeds ISO 12215 requirements for Category A offshore sailing. The hull and deck are built STRONG by J/Composites j99 France utilizing j99 SCRIMP resin-infusion molding process – a molding process proven to yield higher strength laminates for long lasting integrity in an environmentally friendly manner.

• AG+ Custom Mast Section: The J/99 mast is an all-new, custom engineered alloy section (anodized j99 developed specifically for the J/99 by AG+ Spars of France. The unique integral mainsail track accommodates either luff cars or bolt rope.

This innovation eliminates over 12 meters (40’) of fasteners and glue and allows engineers to take advantage of the increased stiffness the integral track geometry provides for final spar section calculations. A tapered top section and quality hardware result in a rig that delivers the best performance value. • Carbon Fiber Fixed Bow Sprit: The J/99 is the first J with a fixed carbon bowsprit.

The sprit is easily removed by way of two bolts just aft of j99 stem, and is supported by a Dyneema bobstay to the bow. The primary benefits j99 a fixed bowsprit for offshore sailing are reduced weight in the bow and better protection against water intrusion.

• Engineered Low VCG Keel: The low VCG (Vertical Center of Gravity) keel of the J/99 is a high-tech two-metal keel (draft of 1.9m/6.5’) comprised of an encapsulated cast iron fin with integral lead wedge bulb - a similar construction method as the J/112e and J/121. This keel provides the J/99 with exceptional stability. J/99 Recognition and Awards The J/99 's performance and capabilities have been widely recognized by the world's yachting press as a truly fun, fast, evolutionary boat from the J/Design and J/Composites build teams.

Recent awards include the SAIL's Best Boats- Performance Award, SAILING WORLD's Boat of the Year- Best Crossover Boat, and the British Yachting Awards - Performance Yacht award.

“The J/99 opens up a wide range of sailing possibilities,” commented designer Alan Johnstone. “The versatile sail plan, j99 hull form and efficient cockpit are ideal for short-handed offshore sailing as well as weekend sailing with friends. The J/99 packs a lot of performance and versatility into a manageable size and budget.” Request J/99 Sales Information • • News • Subscribe j99 Print Subscription • Digital Subscription • Skills • Seamanship • Knowledge • Real life lessons • Maintenance • Tech • Reviews • Boats • New Boats • Gear • Books • Cruising • Guides • Stories • Events • Golden Globe Race • Vendee Globe • Southampton Boat Show • Awards • Brian Black Memorial Award • Other awards • Forum • YM Book Club forum • YBW.com • About us Let’s address the elephant in the room immediately: if you’re looking for a 30ft yacht for sedate cruising, then the J/99 isn’t the best choice.

She can be cruised, which is why you’ll find her in these pages, but what she does better than other cruising yachts her size, is sail well and sail fast. Cruising isn’t what she was primarily designed for, but if you want speed and control (and the potential to have great fun screaming along the coast and more fun short-handed passage racing), then she could be a great choice. Usually, speed means running along a knife-edge – one minute you’re grinning like a fool, pushing the envelope of control, while the next you’re retrieving waterlogged pieces of a spinnaker and j99 an expensive repair bill square in the eyes.

The rudder stock is forward of the tiller stock to take the tiller aft and increase cockpit space.

THE TEST VERDICT Sailing the J/99 was a delight, and very easy. Admittedly she did have brand new 3Di carbon sails, these add to her cost and performance, but even so she’ll be able to be sailed with the minimum of effort whatever sails you choose. Neither boat nor crew were stressed while sailing at speeds few 32 foot cruisers reach. With 12-16 j99 TWS she was in her element. A bit more breeze and the smiles would have been even harder to remove from our faces. J99 below the space isn’t palatial, but it is practical.

The interior is simple with just enough comfort. The saloon has fabric bags with pockets that cover the hull sides. Credit: Graham Snook It is basic and won’t suit everyone – after all, everyone has different thresholds of what they will put up with. Likewise the finish down below wasn’t of the highest quality, but this was hull number one, and on deck the attention to detail was very good indeed. She might not be a great cruising boat, but she will give her owners quick passage times and what you lose in comfort, you gain in easy, fast fun.

WOULD SHE SUIT YOU AND YOUR CREW? When I go travelling I spend as little time in my hotel room as possible, so why pay more for 5 star luxury features I’m not going to take advantage of? There is good access to the engine under the companionway steps. Credit: Graham Snook As j99 as the bed is comfortable and has the most basic of amenities I’m happy.

The same can be said for the J/99, she has the comfort and space where it’s needed: the saloon and the twin double aft cabins, but the minimum where it’s not. If you’re port hopping, sailing or racing during the day and eating out in the evening, there is no j99 to carry a fully-furnished interior, a large weighty galley and tonnes of spare water you won’t use.

We can so easily get hung up on needing more to cruise, the more stuff we have, the more power we need, the bigger batteries, the extra charging which all weighs and j99 the boat down. If we can j99 down on what we don’t need then we can discover the joy of sailing fast with the minimum of effort.
The J/99 is the newest addition to the J/Sport range, combining headroom and comfortable interior accommodation with the tiller-driven responsiveness of a sport boat.

We’d hoisted the mainsail in our marina berth, then sailed out into the river, the engine left in tick-over for less than two minutes almost as a token gesture. I felt like a naughty kid, slipping out while the rest of the world was still waking up; going to make some trouble. I had come to test the new J/99, sailing double-handed with the British J/Boats importer Paul Heys on a chilly, blustery January morning. Within ten minutes our demure departure was all but forgotten as we came bursting out of Southampton Water, our senses assaulted from all angles by the bitter north wind and our 100m 2 day-glo spinnaker.

As the sun rose, everything about the day and this little powerhouse of a boat became bright, sharp and dynamic. I don’t know what the rest of the world was doing at 0800 on that January morning but j99 were having a blast. The eagerly awaited J/99 directly targets a growing demographic of sailors who enjoy the fantastic short-handed racing scene available all across Europe. Of the 38 orders already confirmed, over half of the new owners intend to race short-handed and it was with this type of sailing in mind I arrived to make the test.

There’s plenty of room for the helmsman to pass across the aft section of the boat during a tack, leaving the whole cockpit free for the crew The new design incorporates some interesting changes for J/Boats, which j99 the J/99 into line with its closest rivals in this area of the market.

Gone is the retractable bowsprit and furling jib, which have been the stalwarts of J/Boat design for close to 20 years, making way for a beamier shape, a fixed bowsprit and a hank-on jib. It’s different, but despite the new features, this still remains resolutely ‘J’ in its appearance and feel. From the first moment I stepped into the cockpit, this boat struck me with its no-nonsense approach.

Sail handling is simple, the cockpit clean and well laid-out, the helm dynamic and responsive. Just cruising down the river, the boat felt light and seemed to directly translate every puff of wind into increased speed. Compared to the Class 40s I have spent much of the last two years racing, the J/99 felt like a go-cart – a promising combination of agility and power.

Razor sharp Upwind, we cut through the flat water like a knife though silk, achieving 6.7 knots of boat speed at a true wind angle of 38°, in 17 knots of wind. We were j99 with a full main and non-overlapping J2 jib, which felt slightly overpowered in j99 gusts over 20 knots, but proved easy to handle. Article continues below… The popularity of double-handed sailing is on the rise. The Rolex Fastnet J99 is the perfect case in point –… The boat is stiff – it feels like a couple of bodies sitting on the rail would benefit the upwind performance, but that is often the case with short-handed boats and, once heeled, the angle remains steady and comfortable.

Helming upwind required very little input from our single rudder, the boat was incredibly well balanced and gust control could be easily j99 by a gentle feathering on the helm and an ease on the mainsheet fine-tune system. We let the autopilot take over for an upwind leg and a couple of tacks, but I quickly took back the helm – this was way too much fun to allow a machine to take j99. The cockpit is large; j99 takes up a third of the overall deck length, with benches that are half the length of the cockpit.

The area aft of the mainsheet is wide, flat and empty. There are two coachroof winches for halyards and two primaries next to the helming position. Crew can sit either down on the cockpit seats, legs braced opposite, or up over the coaming – both are equally comfortable. There is room to sit two crewmembers side-by-side on these bench seats, though once activity starts it might become crowded. The cockpit layout particularly suits performance shorthanded sailing The jib is controlled using an interesting combination of a longitudinal track, together with floating down- and in haulers.

By leading the sheet to a turning block positioned on the toe rail aft, a marginal outboard lead can be achieved when both in and down haulers are eased. Tacking, even when cross-sheeted was j99 and easy despite our lack of practice. The non-overlapping jib j99 be pulled most of the way in by hand, with the final grind from the high side as the J/99 starts to accelerate. The cockpit is so well ergonomically set up, a solo tack would be equally as easy. I found the best helming position is to sit with one leg astride the j99 traveller, bracing against the two moulded foot rests.

Traveller, mainsheet and backstay are all j99 to this position and with the jib or spinnaker sheets cross-winched, these can also easily be trimmed by the helmsman. A tightly sheeted jib to leeward of mast displays that are clearly readable from the cockpit The double-ended kicker is thoughtfully positioned and long enough to lead back to the helm from where it can be quickly released.

The helming position is comfortable with a fantastic view of the water ahead, though I imagine it will feel somewhat exposed in rougher conditions – perhaps this is when the autopilot earns it’s keep. When steering through a tack the helmsman can easily pass behind the mainsheet unhindered, leaving the cockpit free for flailing elbows.

The J/99 uses tiller steering – the optional twin-rudder version still leads to a single tiller. There is room and an option to mount wheel steering in this area but I cannot imagine a good reason to do this. It would add extra weight further aft in the boat, fill up the cockpit and confine the helmsman.

The tiller is curved upwards to allow the mounting of a liferaft underneath – a common raft position for offshore boats and an eminently sensible one that keeps weight off the transom yet still provides a ready-to-launch raft on deck. Initial jib car position fore and aft can be set using the track, which is pinned in place, then remaining controls dictate angle of attack and twist, with the down- hauler passing through the pinned jib car Significant sail area Off the breeze, the J/99 is punchy, versatile and a lot of fun.

The 100m 2 A2 spinnaker is certainly a generous size and, in the test conditions, provided us with exciting reaching at angles up to 135° true, together with a competitive, powerful downwind VMG speed (sailing at 8.4 knots at j99 true). It also gives the adaptability to sail at deep angles with the tack line right off and the kite fully rotated around the bow. In this configuration we were still able to sail quickly at wind angles of up to 170° true.

We saw upper wind strengths of 25 knots and during these gusts the helm started to feel heavy as the big spinnaker loaded-up – I was caught out by one such gust, rounding up before I had time to respond. This isn’t to say the single rudder option is unresponsive – a timely, short, hard pump of the rudder always put us back on our feet – but merely that the big sail plan and gusty conditions do require concentration.

For the ‘nip and tuck’ of close quarters manoeuvring, the single rudder gives a very direct grip to the water, which will allow the helmsman to fling the J/99 in and out of tight spaces.

For prolonged periods of powerful reaching under spinnaker, I believe the twin rudder option would be a sensible choice to avoid aching arms or lapses in concentration; so far 12 of the 38 orders have specified the twin rudder set up. If sailing under autopilot with single rudder, in gusty conditions it may be wise to use a higher level of response to enable the pilot to make more forceful corrections.

Fixed bowsprit marks a departure from the retractable bowsprits used on J/Boats of old For reaching, we flew a 66m 2 cable-less Code 0 from the 2:1 tack line on the bowsprit, a sail that is a must for any offshore wardrobe. We whipped the zero up in a matter of seconds then blasted across the Solent reaching up to angles of 110° to the true wind and speeds up to nine knots, though the kicker was constantly in hand for gust control.

Sail handling downwind was as easy as upwind, even when managed by our unpractised crew of two. The bowsprit has double tack line fittings as standard – a 2:1 for the Code 0 and a single line for the spinnaker, giving a working option for peeling between off-wind sails.

The Code 0 tack line is managed with a jammer on the bow, while the single tack line is led to the cockpit. This makes perfect sense for double-handed takedowns when the zero is usually dropped inside the jib, on to the foredeck, while the spinnaker is taken into the cockpit under the boom. The Code 0 furler is not under significant load and can be furled by one person, by hand from the foredeck. Moulded toerails forward of the beam give extra security to any foredeck excursions.

The J/99 is an Alan Johnstone j99 Versatility of design Though these boats can be sailed fully crewed – which would optimally be with six people – it is impossible to ignore the focussed design aspects that make the J/99 stand out. Cast a critical eye over the cockpit and you’ll see an area designed for performance double-handed sailing. It’s simple, perhaps even sparse, but everything is where it should be and I, for one, felt instantly at home.

But don’t j99 fooled into thinking this boat is a one-trick pony; there is j99 clever adaptability to the design that will suit a wide range of sailors.

Yes, there are some fundamental aspects that have changed to be more geared-up for double-handed offshore racing, but J/Boats have maintained a foot in the inshore camp making a boat with a shape and features that promise great all-round performance.

The new fixed bowsprit design retains enough length to use a powerful asymmetric spinnaker but also allows owners to switch between symmetrical and asymmetrical set ups without penalty – a factor that is proving increasingly popular in the displacement offshore classes. The roller furler has been replaced in favour of hank-on style jibs.

The theory behind this is that when inshore racing, you can always ‘hold on’ until the downwind leg to make j99 headsail change, while offshore, a slab-reefed jib provides a more satisfactory shape to the sail and is still less hassle than a full-on sail change. The alloy mast is a custom extrusion from AG+ designed to j99 both a mainsail with a bolt rope or captive slides with no adaptation required – meaning an owner could switch j99 an inshore bolt rope main and a short-handed j99 on sliders.

The J/99 has a full beam of 3.4m, which is carried most of the way aft with slight narrowing to the transom. This gives it an increased hull form stability to previous J/Boat designs, though unlike its closest rivals in the market, the JPK 1010, and the Sunfast 3200, the J/99 does not have chines. Instead, the more j99 lines give the hull shape more all-round performance and should offer greater versatility for inshore racing, particularly in lighter breeze. The saloon is functional rather than luxurious What’s below The J/99 is clearly not aimed at those who are looking for a luxurious interior, but below decks there is a functional enough layout for weekend cruising, including twin aft cabins – something not often seen on racer/cruisers of this size.

The saloon is flanked by sofa berths, with a central table built around the keel-stepped mast. There is an option for pipecots outboard of the sofas, increasing the berths from six to eight – though eight j99 and their kit would certainly j99 a squeeze. There’s a basic galley with a two-burner gas cooker, sink and galley storage facilities. The forepeak is a spacious open sail storage area with a heads plumbed-in behind the port bulkhead but no other ‘bathroom’ facilities – j99 grab handles for rougher conditions would undoubtedly be a good idea.

AGM batteries are part of the standard boat package – one 70Ah for engine start and one 100Ah for house. The standard engine alternator is used for charging. The starboard aft cabin mirrors the one to port Our verdict The J/99 is an exciting new addition to a competitive area of the market.

It’s up against some tough competition, but make no mistake, this new design comes out of the corner fighting. Don’t look for frills because there aren’t any – this boat is all about great sailing performance. A rriving at a time when JPK and Jeanneau seem to j99 increasing their dominance in the double-handed circuit, I believe the J/99, with its slightly larger sail area and more versatile hull shape, will create more than a few waves in the coming years.

It’s a fun, serious but manageable boat that is thoughtfully set up for double-handed sailing and would not require a huge number of crew to be competitive around the cans.

It will suit sailors who enjoy both inshore and offshore racing and are looking for a no-nonsense boat to help them shine.

The J/99 is designed to j99 in these events (both fully crewed and short-handed) while delivering the exhilarating, family-friendly experience the J Sport range is known for. The J/99 has a versatile cockpit for both day-cruising and day-racing that can comfortably accommodate as many as 6. The deck layout has several optimized features including a floating jib lead system, 8:1 inhauler system, cockpit-led outhaul, cunningham, and double-ended boomvang.

The 48:1 cascading backstay system leads to both sides of the cockpit. The two self-tailing primary winches are located within reach of the driver. The J/99 is tiller steered with a choice of a single centerline, balanced rudder, or an optional twin rudder configuration (which is popular for offshore short-handed sailing when using auto-pilot).

A wheel package is available as an option. The J/99 interior is roomy with clean lines and uncluttered spaces. The main cabin features two full length settee berths with optional flip-up pilot berths. The L-shaped galley has everything for the j99 cruise including a stove, an ice-box and an inboard sink with a pressure water system. There’s a proper sit-down, forward-facing, nav station to starboard. The drop-leaf main cabin table is a nice extra, usually seen only on cruising J’s.

There are matching double aft cabins with privacy doors. This versatile layout allows 2-4 crew to sleep on the windward side for good offshore weight distribution, and up to 8 for the occasional inshore regatta or weekend cruise. The forepeak is dedicated for the head and sail storage, and otherwise kept as light as possible.

J/99 Specification Features • High Quality Composite Engineering & Construction: The J/99 exceeds ISO 12215 requirements for Category A offshore sailing. The hull and deck are built STRONG by J/Composites of France utilizing the SCRIMP resin-infusion molding process – a molding process proven to yield higher strength laminates for long lasting integrity in an environmentally j99 manner. • AG+ Custom Mast J99 The J/99 mast is an all-new, custom engineered alloy section (anodized j99 developed specifically for the J/99 by AG+ Spars of France.

The unique integral mainsail track accommodates either luff cars or bolt rope.
