J Class

The J Class models are 1/16th scale hulls of the J Class yachts that sailed for the America´s Cup from 1930 through 1937 as well as the yachts that were converted to the J Class and competed with the America´s Cup yachts in club regattas. The models are the largest recognized class in the AMYA with hull lengths ranging from about 7 feet in length to 8 1/2 feet in length and weighing between 65 and 115pounds. The models carry from about 3,000 to 4,000 square inches of sail on masts that are 8 to 91/2 feet above the deck. The difference in sizes of the models is driven by the different sizes of the full size yachts.

There were ten yachts built to the J specifications between 1930 and 1937, six in America and four in Britain to compete for the America´s Cup. Another eight existing large yachts sailing at the time were converted to J specifications for use as trial horses and as competitors in local yacht club regattas. Drawings for all of the original J yachts and those converted to the J class are available from several museums such as the Mystic Seaport Museum, the Smithsonian and the Herreshoff Maritime Museum.

The J Class is truly one of the most beautiful class of models in the AMYA reflecting the sailing power and grace of the original classic yachts of the 1930s.
