These classic yachts were used in competition for the America’s Cup from the 1930s until the mid-1950s and have recently experienced a revival, being raced once again by many of the world’s top professional sailors at events around the world.
The J Class yachts have benefited from the quantum leap made in sail, mast and rigging technology over the last 70 years and are now high-performing race yachts, many of which feature comfortable cruising interiors.
