On-board privacy, protection, storage & auxiliary power
The small cabin below is a bonus in any small keelboat, and the J/70 cabin is just large enough to provide weather & sun protection, a place to nap and/or for personal privacy… essential to keeping the whole crew happy if spending a day on the water.
The J/70 one-design class rules provide for a 2.5 hp outboard engine (gas or electric). This means one can sail further away from homeport without worrying about paddling home or hailing for a tow. Race Committees can start races on time and finish them later in the day without having to arrange tow boats.
Lease a J/70 Today!
J/Boats and Dockline are pleased to offer the first-of-its-kind lease program for J/70s. Lease a J/70 today, starting at $799/ month for 36 months.
Why lease? For the same reason nearly all other big-ticket purchases are leased. There’s no large upfront expense, no long term commitment, and at the end of 36 months you turn in the keys with no resale worries. If your business happens to have a regular expense account entertaining clients (i.e. taking them sailing), leasing provides a ready solution without impacting the family finances.
Dockline was founded by two life-long one-design sailors and leasing/financing veterans who saw the opportunity to be first to market with a compelling program to engage the next generation of sailors. What better boat to kick off the program than the J/70 – the most exciting and fastest growing sportboat in the world. Learn More about Leasing Here.
