Following her bigger sister- the J/122E- the J/97E is a dramatic new configuration of the extraordinarily successful J/97. Having proven itself as one of the most successful 29 foot IRC offshore keelboat designs ever, many avid J aficionados wished to have that “big boat” feel in a pocket rocket cruising boat. Renowned for its capacious, wide-open interior, the new J/97E features a
new high-end, modern interior design comprised of walnut woods and off-white trim and ceilings. Add in the large hull windows and the feeling is one of “bringing the outdoors in”!
In addition to the wonderful interior enhancements, the cockpit has been completely re-designed to include the famous J/111 cockpit ergonomics- nice long seats that permit you to stretch out in comfort combined with a floor-mounted mainsheet and a large diameter steering wheel on a pedestal in the wide-open aft cockpit. Look for the new J/97E in this year’s fall boatshows.
