FAMILY ROCKETSHIP

Sailing can be the world’s best family sport. The key is a boat that holds the attention and interest of many types of sailors, young and old! J/80 does it all, with thrilling 15 knot rides under spinnaker or relaxed sunset cruises with mainsail only.

Be sailing in 3 minutes. Take off the boom cover and hoist the mainsail, attached to the mast with slides. Cast off. You’re now sailing faster than other boats with full canvas. Ready for more speed? Uncleat the furler line and pull in the jib sheet. Presto!

Now you’re really flying! Time for the afterburners? Pull the sprit launch control line, hoist the asymmetric spinnaker and trim. Now you’re planing! To jibe, simply let off the old sheet and pull in the new. No one on the foredeck! You can even do it single-handed. And to think, prior to the J/80, this kind of performance was rarely achieved, even with a full crew of 4-5 athletic experts. Join hundreds of others worldwide who are discovering how well J/80 fulfills their dream: A single boat which combines simplicity of operation, confidence building stability and sparkling performance in an affordable, low maintenance and trailerable package. Truly, a unique sailboat for the entire family!
