The J145 is the ultimate modern racer-cruiser, a true dual purpose boat!
“The J/145 design is unique among boats over 45 feet in offering the proper balance: A boat that’s a joy to sail fast with as few as two people while at the same time being comfortable to live aboard and to entertain on.
As a SAIL Magazine Top Ten award winner, and with victories & honors in some of the World’s most famous offshore races & regattas, including Key West Race Week, Fastnet Race, Port Huron-Mac Race, RORC Season Championship and more recently a 3rd place finish in the 2006 Sydney Hobart Race, the J/145 has defined a unique class of dual purpose performance yacht” JBoats site

Performance Upgrades

  • Carbon Boom
  • Carbon Wheel
  • Big Winches
  • Removable Light Weight Floorboards
  • Grand Prix Mainsheet System led underdeck through carbon tubes.
  • Ultralight forepeak helps keep all the interior weight in the center of the boat.


“The design and construction challenge to create such a yacht is formidable. The customary way to gain speed is to save weight by eliminating the interior and simplifying the deck. To retain the best of both worlds, the J/145 project called for the latest in advanced composite technology and materials to optimize strength for weight so that important sailing comfort features could be preserved. J/145’s long-lasting, high-tech laminate uses uni-directional carbon fiber & E-glass skins with balsa core infused with the patented SCRIMP system. This process yields a laminate for hull & deck construction that’s been tested by the US Naval Surface Warfare Lab at double the strength of hand lay-up construction found in nearly all other production and semi-custom sailboats” JBoat site
