1979 J Boats J30 Racer Sailboat in Warwick, Rhode Island

Stock #106736

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

The best-known name in racing, Pearson-Tillotson began production of this particular model in the year of its birth, 1979. With designer Rod Johnstone at the helm, they produced some of the fastest, best cruising 'Ragtime' prototypes.

With her Fin Keel, transom hung rudder and ballast of 2100, the J/30 is a racer/cruiser sailing Keelboat developed to provide more comfort for coastal cruising while maintaining a high level of sailing performance to make for a competitive race.

Following on the enormous success of the J/24, Rod Johnstone designed the J/30 to motivate and sustain participation in the sport of sailing by the entire family. Introduced in 1979, the aim was to build a boat that would be comfortable for a family to cruise or day-sail without compromising speed and performance. By striking this balance, the J/30 is a competitive racer that can be comfortably handled by sailors of all age and experience levels.
