J 121 Sport sailboat

The new J 121 has been optimised for sailing long distances with a crew of 5 or less. She satisfies the growing need to simplify the organisation of your racing season by limiting the number of crew aboard.

The J 121 is the answer for those who are looking for a boat offering enjoyment and perfomance in shorthanded configuration. She features ballast tanks that can be easily controlled from the cockpit and is able to compete against honed crews of 8 to 10 people!

The boat’s interior is simple, bright and offers a genuine sense of space.
The L-shaped galley features an oven and a refrigeration unit, enabling you to head offshore with all the comfort you need.
Forward of the main bulkhead, you’ll find space to stow your sails, which is practical for hoisting or dumping your spinnaker!

EXPLOIT ITS ERGONOMIC COCKPIT

With a large space to manoeuvre and good protection from the elements, the J 121 has been definitively designed for offshore sailing! The helmsman can very easily access the mainsheet.

ADMIRE THE PRECISION

To achieve such performance, the construction of the boat has involved great attention to detail.
Some precision tooling has been developed by Symmetrix, one of the most highly specialised American firms in terms of the realisation of machined parts. Indeed, the volumetric tolerance is below 0.1mm.

Equipment

Composites

The materials for the sandwich and infusion composite construction are selected with precision so as to achieve the best possible combination of lightness/solidity on the market.

Keel

The keel is composed of a fully encapsulated cast iron fin keel and a lead bulb to obtain the greatest possible stability

Rig

To offer you the highest standard of equipment on the market, the rig on the J 121 is the fruit of a very precise selection process.

Carbon

Opting for carbon for the rudder, mast and bowsprit brings lightweight design and performance.
The carbon for the mast uses high modulus fibre.

Sails

The J 121 boasts a large furling jib, a staysail with a removable forestay, a furling code zero and a large spinnaker with a snuffer. This equipment has been designed to simplify manoeuvres when sailing offshore.

Ballast tanks

The J 121 features an easy-to-use ballast system capable of containing 400l of water each, compensating for the weight of the crew and hence facilitating sailing in shorthanded configuration.

Equipment

One design requires precise equipment in terms of deck hardware and sail area, resulting in an interesting race programme whilst limiting the expense of the arms race.

Sensations

The lightweight design of the J 121 enables it to take off in the slightest gust so it’s like sailing a 40-foot sports dinghy. One design racing is a guarantee of a thrilling ride!
