CULTIVATE A PASSION FOR RACING

Optimisation and customisation: the Grand Prix Division offers you unrivalled racing expertise for your projects.

TAKE CONTROL OF A REFERENCE

J boats have always been renowned in racing circles, monopolising the list of winners for decades.
This would not have been possible without the architect’s designs dedicated to all-round performance and a build quality combining lightweight design and stiffness and an unrivalled mastery of infusion.

YOU RACE, WE RACE...

From the naval architect to the experts to the builder, at J, everyone races! This is what enables the Grand Prix boats to attain such a high level of expertise and allows our teams to offer the best possible advice on optimising your boat.

BRING YOUR DESIRES TO LIFE

Whether you’re racing around the cans or over longer distances, the Js have always demonstrated great prowess both offshore and inshore.
And should you wish to adapt your boat to your racing programme, we can optimise your deck layout and your subsequent equipment.

SEEK ADVICE

J boats sails all over the world. That’s why our teams have in-depth knowledge of the main rating systems, meaning they can advise you on the best choice of rig or keel with a view to obtaining the best possible performance/handicap rating for your programme.

EQUIPMENT INNOVATION

Each year, our teams trial and put to the test the latest technological innovations in terms of equipment to offer you the most appropriate recommendations.

SAIL SINGLEHANDED, DOUBLE-HANDED OR IN CREWED CONFIGURATION

The Grand Prix Js come with different versions of the rig, the keel and the sail plan and can be adapted to shorthanded configuration. The Grand Prix Js offer a level of performance that is easily accessible in shorthanded configuration thanks to their ballast stability and their build optimisation, which enables them to reduce the weight in the boat’s topsides.
