About this J Boats J/97
A repeat success under IRC, the J/97 is a great choice for the cruiser-racer sailor. Combining full standing headroom and family cruising accommodation in a high performance, easily driven hull, the J/97 boasts the handling ease of an asymmetric spinnaker and non-overlapping headsails. At just 31.5' she fits the needs of today's sailing families, both young and old alike.
Induljence is in great condition and her racing results include:
Royal Southampton Frostbite Series 1st Overall 2012
IRC Nationals Championships 1st Overall 2013
Royal Southern Champion of Champions 2013
Hamble Winter Series Yacht of The Year 2013
Cowes Week 2nd Overall in Class 5 2014
Double Handed IRC Nationals 2nd Overall 2014
J/97 Nationals 2nd Overall 2014
Warsash Spring Series 2nd Overall 2014
The cockpit features full length seats with back rests, tiller steering, and a unique, partially open transom that incorporates life-raft storage. All sailing controls are within reach of the helmsperson to make the boat very easy to manage. A retractable bow sprit with masthead asymmetric spinnaker allows great all-around performance without the need for numerous skilled crew. The low VCG keel provides exceptional upwind stability while being cruising friendly with swept back leading edge and moderate draft.
The J/97 has won the Royal Southern Champion of Champions 3 years running, and 3 different boats have been declared overall winner at the Scottish Series.
