Fast, sleek & easy to sail... The J/39 Offshore Racer
The J/39 was originally conceived and designed to compete under any handicap rule that was popular in the 1990's. This model fit into the European CHS/UNCL (now IRC) class of the day and actively raced at such events.
Since then the J/39 has enjoyed success racing under multiple handicapping systems, a testimonial to its all around performance worldwide. To date, it competes well under ORR, IRC, CORC and the PHRF handicap system. Several owners have also converted their J/39s for cruising.
While the design concept of the J/39 is similar to J/Boats other successful designs (like the J/41) with low freeboard, wide decks for effective hiking, a high aspect masthead rig, low wetted surface, long effective sailing length for the rating, the shape is not precisely a scaled down version of the J/41 IOR boat.
The stern is a bit wider for more power and the throat is closer in concept to the other offshore designs with a low VCG for good stability and a more forgiving shape to reduce the incidence of stalling.
Deck- Deck layout for the boat is simple yet efficient with a small cabin house and a large single level racing cockpit with mainsheet traveler that separates the helmsman from the crew. Steering is by tiller attached to a balanced rudder supported by Harken roller bearings.
Interior- The layout of the interior is functional with a V-berth, walk-thru head forward, clean settee berths in the main saloon aft of a centralized galley. The Yanmar engine is located just under the companionway ladder with quarterberths to both port and starboard. Pipe berths were offered above each of the main settee berths and quarter berths to accommodate crew for offshore distance races.
Rig- The J/39 has a triple in-line spreader masthead aluminum rig with a high aspect mainsail and overlapping headsails. Running rigging is Navtec rod with open body Navtec turnbuckles. The spar package was built by Hall Spars of Bristol, RI.
