“The J/70's are looking beautiful out of McConaghy Boats in Zhuhai, China. J/70 Hull 477 Shipped from McConaghy today on its way to Qingdao. Current production and orders has the next boat finishing on September 5th. I look forward to sailing next week with the two Qingdao owners.
The first J/70 was sailing this past weekend with the new owner, John Chapple, with the sailmaker and guests on-board (including J/China dealer Jeppe Mortensen). For our first sail, we did not have the greatest of weather, but everyone loved the boat! We’ll be looking for that first 15-25 kt breeze day so we can send along GoPro video and photos of some of the beautiful places we are sailing J/70s in China!
