Exciting New J's Debut At Grand Pavois Boat Show

J/70 one-design sailboat- sailing European championship- Lake Garda, ItalyJ/70 One-Design, J/88 Family Speedster & J/122 New Edition
(La Rochelle, France)- Next week, the Grand Pavois Boat Show will be taking place in La Rochelle, France from the 25th to 30th of September.   There will be three exciting new models to be introduced to the French sailing market.

For starters, there will be a J/70 on display including one that will be available for sea-trials for all six days of the show!  Learn more about the amazing story of how J/70s are growing in France and throughout Europe.  On hand to discuss their experience in the first J/70 EuroCup recently held on gorgeous Lake Garda in Italy will be J/Composites Fred Bouvier.  In less than 20 months, J/70s are now pushing nearly 500 units worldwide!

J/88 family speedster- sailing off NewportHaving just been introduced in America at the Newport Boat Show and the Southampton Boat Show in England, the J/88 family speedster will see its first debut on the European continent at the Grand Pavois show!  As the next-generation 29 footer in the J/Boats stable, the J/88 has proven to be an awesome performer, capable of 6.8 to 7.2 kts upwind speed and demonstrating similar fast downwind, planing capabilities as its sisterships- the J/70 and J/111. She sports a comfortable, practical weekending interior and shares the amazingly comfortable cockpit design of the 111, but with finger-tip steering control on a tiller-steered boat.

The evolution of the highly successful J/122 offshore cruiser-racer takes a dramatic turn in 2014 with several innovations that will appeal to family and friends alike to enhance the J/122's extraordinary "livability".  With a striking new profile, sleek new cabin-top windows, two large port-lights in the hull and a fresh new contemporary interior with Le Corbusier "flair & styling", new J/122 owners will enjoy new levels of both grace and performance unmet by any other sailboat in the 40 footer category!

Also on hand will be the trend-setting IRC cruiser-racer, the J/97. Having set new standards for sailing performance, innovative interior style and ease-of-handling, learn more about J/97's magic combination of speed, comfort and trophy-winning capabilities!   For more Grand Pavois Sailboat Show information
