(Newport, RI)- This past weekend, boat show attendees were in for a treat when they visited the J/Boats booth at the Newport International Boat Show. The latest incredibly cool, family-friendly option has been added to the amazingly popular J/9 daysailer- the “living room couch” (aka- “love seat”) cockpit cushion option. To say the response to this new option was overwhelmingly enthusiastic would be a mild understatement. No question, the crowds enjoyed lounging for long periods of time, reposing in new-found comfort on a high-performance daysailer!
The ultra-luxurious Living Room cushion option is available in a wide-range of fabrics and colors, including Ultra-Leather, Ultra-Suede, and even your basic Sunbrella fabrics. The choices of comfort are nearly infinite. Imagine, your living room sofa on the water, but up to 50% bigger… nine feet long! It’s a re-definition of the joys of daysailing on the water anywhere you can imagine with family and friends.
Bob & Mary Enjoy 65th Anniversary Afternoon Sail
After the boat show, the J/9 ended up back on her mooring in front of New York Yacht Club’s Harbour Court. Not to miss an opportunity to take her for a harbor cruise, J/Boats co-founder Bob Johnstone and wife Mary took her out for a sail with son’s Stu and Drake. Bob and Mary were in town not only for the show, supporting son Peter and his MJM Yachts efforts as well, but also to celebrate their 65th Anniversary with family and friends.
