Charter 32' Cruising Monohull J97 in Hamble-le-Rice, England
The J/97 is the first J in over two decades under 32’ to combine 6’ headroom and family cruising accommodations in a high performance, easily driven hull. At first glance, the J/97 bears a family resemblance to the J/109 and J/122. Like its larger siblings, the J/97 is all about delivering a fun and satisfying sailing experience, whether daysailing, single-handing, cruising or racing. The cockpit features full-length seats with backrests, tiller steering, and a unique, partially open transom that incorporates life-raft storage. All the key controls are within reach of the helmsperson. A retractable bowsprit with masthead asymmetric spinnaker allows great all-around performance without the need for numerous skilled crew. The low VCG keel provides exceptional upwind stability while being cruising friendly with a swept back leading edge (to avoid snagging buoys) and a moderate draft. The interior layout is laid out for one or two couple cruising and includes a spacious main cabin with two settees, galley, forward-facing navigation station; plus an enclosed aft head, V-berth, and aft owner’s cabin. Cruising stowage includes a large “garage” aft of the head (accessed through the cockpit seat locker). J/97 is also located in Cowes, Dartmouth, Mediterranean, and the Caribbean They also offer yacht racing and RYA training courses. They do captained & bareboat charters. Rates vary by season. Please inquire for exact pricing.
