PRELIMINARY LISTING - PHOTOS TO FOLLOW -
A competitive PHRF Racer/Cruiser that's fun to sail & easy to handle with accommodations for weekend cruising. Her race record speaks for itself, winning major races on both coast and the Great Lakes. Her PHRF rating is between 81 and 87 and can sail to those ratings. This is a fast fun boat, faster than most racer/cruisers three to four feet larger. SPEED - SPACIOUS COCKPIT - GREAT DECK LAYOUT - COMFORTABLE ACCOMMODATIONS - Amazing VENTILATION w/ ALL OPENING PORTS & HATCHES. A great boat to take around the cans, do some overnight racing, or to just go out and have some fun with family and friends. A true Rule 90 Boat - "Have Fun". Thank you for your consideration.
STANDING HEADROOM - Most are amazed that such a fast sailboat has any interior at all, let alone standing headroom. It's nice to have room to move around the cabin in comfort and have room to stretch after a long day at sea. Accommodations are simple yet functional with large main settees and duffel storage behind, a large icebox, sink, and over-sized quarter berths. Add 8 Lewmar opening ports and hatches for superb cross-ventilation and you have an open airy, spacious interior to cool off even the hottest crew. ENCLOSED HEAD - Forward of the main bulkhead is a tremendous fore-peak with an enclosed head, opposite behind the bulkhead door is wet locker storage.
The J-33 has a state-of-the-art deck layout which is not only extremely efficient for racing, but is terrific for day-sailing as well. Wide, spacious decks provide ample room to both stretch out when day-sailing and move about when racing. Too many seats and angles in a boat of this size usually eliminate most of the comfortable seating angles available to the skipper and crew. Unlike a conventional "sit-in" cockpit, the single level cockpit provides plenty of elbow room for the cockpit crew around the bouts and loads of seating space leaning back against the lifelines. RESPONSIVE - The J-33 accelerates in a puff with just finger-tip control on the tiller ( the rudder spins on Harken rudder bearings) and glides so effortlessly through the water that sheet loads are lighter and easier for a smaller crew to handle. The rig and sail shape are infinitely adjustable to any wind or wave conditions because the Navtec integral hydraulic back-stay adjuster, "disappearing" check-stays, Harken main-sheet system and adjustable Genoa lead cars make significantly easier to keep your boat up to speed.
MASTHEAD RIG - The J-33 has a large main and smaller fore-triangle than most mastheads because it's easier to keep the boat up to speed in changing conditions. Because the main represents a significant percentage of the overall sail plan, adjustments to it have a great affect on boat speed and trim. So if the wind picks-up, tightening the back-stay, vanging harder, or easing the check-stay can flatten the main enough to prevent changing to a smaller jib. Conversely, when caught up with the wrong head-sail in decreasing breeze, it's much easier to power up the main than it is to change jibs in the last half mile to the weather mark. Another benefit of this sail plan is it makes harbor tours and day-sails a cinch. Plus, it brings peace of mind knowing you can beat off of a lee shore with just the main alone in a storm. The small jibs are light enough for the younger ones to horse around and they are much easier to fold and store. A bonus is the spinnaker isn't so large that it over powers the boat in a breeze, so the J-33 is easier to control off the wind.
There are also five (5) additional old sails if wanted: Main, HV#1, LT#1,#2,#2
Loyd's approved Baltec Contourkore end grain balsa laminate construction using biaxial and unidirectional glass roving with interplastic vinylester resin on the outer hull layer for optimum blister resistance. Specifications and weights are tightly controlled to insure equality of performance. Sandwich construction along with full width main cabin structural bulkhead taped fore and aft to deck and hull insures that hull shape is indentical for every boat. And for the ultimate in strength, the hull-to-deck joint is bonded with 3M's 5200 adhesive and botled on 4' centers. Engineering and construction of such high standards that it meets or exceeds the American Bureau of Shipping's Offshore Yacht A-1 standards.
