Neatly maintained and delicious fast and sporty J/Boats J/109, NKE equipment renewed in 2015, large sailing wardrobe, life raft, boiler, shower
Rudder: spade rudder
Steering system: Edson steering position with a double-spoke steering wheel, covered with (old) leather
Windows: Lewmar deck hatches (with small cracks - but not leaking) and Moonlight portholes (with mosquito screens)
Other: The ship is built of GRP (glass reinforced plastic) with a balsa core.
By means of the so-called SCRIMP molding process (a vacuum technique which makes the ship and deck are 50% stronger compared to traditional laminating methods).
This construction method ensures a very stiff ship with a water displacement of just under 4.9 tons.
The counterweight is over 1,7 tons and is inside the bulb keel.
The keel has been disassembled a few years ago, after which the bottom of the hull has been slightly strengthened and the keel has been reassembled (Not due to a damage or grounding).
The ship has 2 water tanks, each about 85 liters, for an ideal weight distribution mounted under the benches on port side and starboard side at the height of the keel.
The spacious cockpit locker is accessible from both the cockpit and the bathroom.
The dock box, which stands over the entire width of the aft side of the cockpit, is removable.
Flush hull penetrations, except from the holding tank.
The old layers of antifouling were removed from the underwater hull in 2017, after which a new primer layer and a layer of antifouling were applied.
The ship has been ashore twice a year, once to clean the underwater hull and once to sand down the old self-sharpening antifouling layer and apply a new layer of antifouling after cleaning. At the end of July 2020, the ship was ashore for a new layer of antifouling, a new anode and a professional hull cleaning.
Well maintained and very complete J/109. The J/109 is a pleasant, stable and fast sailor.
This very fully equipped J/109 is a wonderful sporty cruiser (which is easy to use with a small crew) and also very suitable as a competition boat.
The 1st (Dutch) owner had bought the ship during the Cannes Boat Show and had the ship at his home in the South of France. The ship was then as a Cruiser equipped and did only a few sailing trips, so it was very little used. After a few years, the ship was sold to the 2nd owner. In the beginning it was used as a cruiser and then more and more participated in sailing regattas. The ship participated in the Fastnet Race in 2007 and 2009 and was bought shortly afterwards by the current Dutch (so third) owner in 2009. In the first years the ship was sailed mainly as a cruiser and after that the owner regularly participated in sailing competitions, even now-a-days does. Jitters has achieved good results in the last ffew years.
The complete history of the ship is present.
