No way the J could be considered a cruiser in any sense, regardless of the marketing. Flat deck, lots of water on deck and in the cockpit makes for a relatively wet boat. And the mast running through the center of the head is humorous. I can only imaging maneuvering around it in a seaway. And the curtain into the V berth is a compromise due to the presence of the mast and lack of clearance.

If you are looking for an offshore cruiser, there are better choices. if you are looking for a club racer, this is a nice boat, IMO.
