Arco Iris Yacht Description

 Why settle for anything less than sailing where and when you want to in comfort, style and speed?  This may be your perfect 32 footer!

2011 IRC Boat Of The Year

Introduced in 2009, the J/97's sisterships attained spectacular performances in major European regattas, winning class in Spi Ouest, Cowes Week, Hamble Winter Series, Sailing World NOOD Chicago and Warsash Springs Series, to name a few. And, the original J/97 was named 2011 IRC Boat of the Year in France (see more results below).

J/97 is the first J in over two decades under 32’ to combine headroom and family cruising accommodations in a high performance, easily driven hull. With the handling ease of an asymmetric spinnaker and non-overlapping headsails, the J/97 promises to be J Boats’ most versatile design yet under 35’ to fit the needs of today’s sailing families, both young and old alike-- the ultimate combination of sailing performance and creature comforts for all!

The key to creating a versatile sailboat is staying focused on the quality of the sailing experience, a trait shared by all J designs. Boats that are easily driven, easily handled, and genuinely fun to sail provide greater long-term “sailing value” to their owners than designs driven by the latest rating rule or designs that are over-compromised to meet the latest styling trends. Form follows function in good sailboat design, the J/97 is no exception.

The  J/97 cockpit  features full length seats with back rests,  tiller steering, and an open transom. All sailing controls are within reach of the helmsperson to make the boat very easy to manage. A retractable bow sprit 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 swept back leading edge and moderate draft.

The J/97's new interior layout conveys a feeling of extraordinary of a wide, spacious living room with windows looking out to the sea.  With large overhead hatches, enormous cabin windows and large portligths over the settees, it feels like you're outdoors!  It's ideal for one couple cruising with room for more.  The enormous main cabin has 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). ARCO IRIS is in excellent shape and an ideal 32 foot racer cruiser.
