2012 J Boats J/111

Baltimore, Maryland


Cuore di Leone is a fine example of a 2012 J/111.  She has always been dry-sailed, does not have bottom paint and is in excellent condition. Cuore di Leone has been well cared for with a good sail inventory and electronics. One owner and always sailed in the brackish waters of the Chesapeake Bay.

J/111 is an easy-to-handle, comfortable sailboat that accelerates quickly, slices to windward at 7+ knots and hits double-digit speeds downwind. Performance to date in a wide variety of sailing conditions has been nothing short of remarkable. The J/111 is a proven winner under PHRF, IRC, ORC and of course as a One-Design class.

Additional Information

Efficient, Comfortable Cockpit.

Sailors spend more time in the cockpit than anywhere else, and this is where the J/111 shines. There's comfortable seating (with backrests) for six, easy movement afoot with floor mounted traveler and well positioned foot braces, an open transom for easy boarding, and large 60” wheel so the driver can comfortably sit on the high or low side, on any point of sail, yet still see the telltales and waves. All principal controls are led aft and the driver can adjust the mainsheet, traveler and backstay from the helm position. An optional dodger is available to give the crew additional weather protection to extend the season.

Less Crew = More Sailing.

Sailboats that are easier to sail are sailed more often. It's that simple. The J/111 is the latest “sport boat” one-design from the company who introduced modern-day sprit sailing to the keelboat world (J/105 in 1991).

A crew of two can fully manage the setting, jibing and dropping of the asymmetrical spinnaker where normally 5-6 are required to manage a conventional spinnaker. With a mainsail on slides, a furling jib and large wheel that gives you fingertip control, the J/111 can be off the dock and sailing in minutes.

This is a boat you can sail with friends and do it with confidence and ease. With the J/111, one's fun is not limited to coastal sailing. Whether double-handing to Mackinac, soloing to Bermuda or flying down the Baja coast with full crew, you can sail the J/111 with complete confidence and control
