Manufacturer Description

The principals of the J Boats - TPI partnership have combined in this investment-grade sailing yacht more than 150 years of experience in building, designing and sailing the world's best sailboats.

Advanced composite construction, an easily driven hull shape and a very low center of gravity result in noticeable differences in how the J-160 performs. Less sail is needed, winch loads are reduced, and the constant sail-changing of heavier displacement cruisers is avoided. J-160 is as easy to handle and sail as a traditional 42-footer. This is a boat which 2-3 people can manage without reliance on powerful or heavy electro-mechanical devices.

The design mandate for the J-160 was to exceed all prior standards for a cruising yacht of this size. One had to feel a sense of joy and control at the wheel as the boat leapt forward in a gust of wind with power and stability. Putting the rail under or shortening the sail shouldn't happen under 20 knots of wind. The J-160 had to slide effortlessly through waves upwind, keeping the crew dry and leaving no signature quarter-wave. Running in seas, it had to slide with great directional stability and good forward buoyancy to ride up over waves ahead. The sail plan had to be manageable, versatile and balanced, yet powerful enough to stabilize motion in waves for a quantum improvement in sailing comfort at sea.

As for aesthetics, the J-160 is traditional in a functional and purposeful way. Short overhangs are combined with a smooth sweep of the sheerline and low freeboard to reduce wind resistance and facilitate boarding. The bow sections are flared to deflect waves downward, keeping the decks dry. The quad spreader rig conveys a graceful power, giving no hint of how easily it is managed. The interior is spacious, clean in execution, beautifully appointed and exquisitely finished, befitting a proper flagship.

Every detail and need has been addressed in terms of provisioning, equipment and storage space for coastal and offshore cruising. The liveaboard comfort and styling of this yacht goes far beyond what you might expect from J Boats, whose reputation was first built in world-class racing. That racing heritage is an invaluable bonus when it comes to quality of construction and many years of problem-free ownership. The J-160 exceeds expectations, representing a significant step forward in quality construction and strength to weight ratios.


Interior is teak with satin varnish. Starting forward behind the collision bulkhead that separates the foredeck locker which provides ample storage and access to the anchor locker is the forward head with separate shower and wet locker, vacuflush electric head and wash basin. The forward cabin has a pullman berth to port with drawers underneath and cabinets along the port side. To starboard is a desk with storage and popup mirror, storage drawers and a large hanging locker.

The salon has an L-shaped settee to port with a pilot berth above, storage behind the seat backs and a water tank underneath. The large table has storage and two leaves that extend port and starboard. There is a straight settee to starboard with storage above and behind the seatbacks and another water tank underneath. Aft of this settee to starboard is the large Nav Station with electronics and 12 volt DC and 110v AC control panels. There is ample storage in the chart table and outboard storage. Aft of the Nav is the second day head with manual toilet sink and shower fitting. The U-shaped galley is to port with double stainless steel sink, a large engine driven freezer and refrigerator, 3 burner propane range with oven and a microwave. There is ample drawers and cabinets for storage.

The two aft cabins each feature double berths, plentiful drawers for storage and a hanging locker. There is ample access to the main engine through panels in both cabins.
