The J/122 explained

J/122 is a new versatile 40 foot performance sprit boat with comfortable live-aboard accommodations, a refined deck layout, low VCG keel with a moderate 7.2' draft. The hull & deck are built using superior infusion molding technology to maximize durability and long term value.

An IRC-friendly cruiser/racer, J/122 offers a completely furnished interior, a simple to manage balanced sail plan, head turning performance and great looks. The first J/122s have quickly set the new performance standard for dual purpose 40 foot yachts both inshore and offshore. Racing against the latest 40'

competition, J/122 is winning both in Europe and the USA.

Developed with and built by J/Europe in France, J/122 is distinguished by a well executed high quality interior, a non-overlapping sailplan configuration that helps simplify the deck layout and sail selection. A setback headstay with furler are recessed into the deck to maximize the jib luff length while retaining the convenience of jib furling from the cockpit. With, the simplicity of an asymmetric spinnaker flown from a retractable carbon bow sprit, that makes it easy to achieve near peak performance with minimal crew effort.
