Cruising, Racing & Grand Prix Yachts

Buying a new boat or starting a new program with an existing one can be quite an overwhelming processs at times.

"At Sailing Inc. our mission is to get you started down the right path, providing you the best possible boat buying experience. Our team's expertise in selling, supporting and sailing a full line of J/Boats products means we have answers to all your questions."

Ryan Ruhlman - CEO, Sailing Inc.

Sail Ecologically

Sailing is certainly the most pleasant and ecological way to get around with the utmost freedom. The Js’ unique ability to sustain performance will reduce your engine use by at least 15% leading to fewer polluting emissions.

Experience the Excellence

Only a J can offer the serenity of the most solid and rigid construction on the market, whilst retaining its unrivalled lightweight design, which establishes its reputation as a high-performance yacht.

Obsession For Detail

J Boats are a work of precision: positioning of each piece of hardware to minimise the effort required for each manoeuvre, interior finish to maximise every stowage space, with easy access to all the boat’s instruments and a constant quest to optimise materials.

Passion With A Purpose

The story of J/Boats is a classic entrepreneurial tale: With a $20,000 investment, and a speedy 24-foot sailboat that Rod Johnstone built in his garage, Rod & his brother Bob Johnstone went into business. That was 1977. Now, that boat (the J/24), has become the most popular recreational offshore keelboat in the world. In addition to the 5,400 J/24s cruising the waves, there are over 7,000 more J/Boats, ranging from the International J/22 to the J/65.
