Eighteen J class boats were designed between 1930 and 1939, only ten of which were actually built. Three of these boast have survived to the present day and have been restored. Since 2004 several other boats have been replicated using the original plans, and new J class boats have been designed too.

The characteristic feature of the J class is the so-called Bermuda rigging with a continuous mast without extension and high rigging instead of the otherwise customary gaff rig. A bowsprit to secure job sails is not provided for. The fascination of the J class derives from the unique combination of the boats’ size and speed. The social prestige of their proud owners and the high drama of challenging both Neptune and fellow mortals in such costly and thoroughbred craft make J class racing so compelling. The thrill of victory and the heartbreak of defeat make the J class truly the premier league in yacht racing.

Each print is hand numbered and accompanied by a certificate signed by the artist. The certificate is numbered to match the print.
