Hi!Mr W, thanks for posting. As I was expecting from previous boats that seems to be a great interior with good quality materials. I also like the look of it: cozy and light and JPK offers a great deal of customization.

That also means that there are already two boats made . The exterior photos I have posted were from a version with a fixed keel this one seems to be a swing keel version.

About performances that is easy to tell: This boat is FAST. I don't know any JPK boat that is not fast anyway

It is not a boat made for handicap racing and possibly the handicap would not be very good, I don't know, but I know that you are going to arrive in the middle of the racing boats. If you are talking about just cruising and have fun, this and a Pogo are as fast as you can get. This boat has also a lot of ballast and it will be a very seaworthy boat. I would like to have a look at the stability curve, but I bet it is great.

Regards

Paulo

Re: JPK 38FC

Hi Paulo,

I actually think this is the version with the fixed keel. I think they all have the same layout with what looks to be a box under the mast support for the hydraulics, but on this boat itīs probably just some storage for some bottles of fine liquor... I think there has only been one boat built, and that is the fixed keel version (not 100% sure though).

Do you think the JPK 38 will have somewhat equal performance as the Pogo 12.50? It only has 80 sqm of upwind sailarea, compared to the Pogos 107 or so sqm, and it weighs almost the same.

The reason why I have been following this thread is that Iīm looking for a new boat for me and my family. We have two young boys and therefore Iīm looking for a boat that is stable and easy to single hand. The area where we spend most of our time on the water is characterized by mostly light winds (5-15 knots), flat water, shallow harbours and lots of small islands with tight passages.

I have previously owned 2 trimarans and before that I have been in the world of keelboats with my parents. Iīm a bit hooked on multihulls due to speed and stability but my mind is open for keelboats as well, if I can find one that can be very fast with relatively little effort put in to it! The mrs always reminds me that a multihull can capsize, even though I try to convince her it wonīt. I have had my eyes on the Pogo 12.50 and JPK 38, but they are imho a little bit too big for us. I was thinking max 35 feet. Itīs a shame that the Pogo 10.50 isnīt as modern design as the 12.50 and the JPK.

Any other suggestions?!

Kind regards,
Mr W

Mr W, just take a look at table top, first image some kind of orange, last one without such top. But images are taken just 10 minutes apart.

Why don't you wait for Pogo 30 then.

Should not be a problem. More choice is always good. Go there sail both boats, sit inside and have a feeling of what would be living there, see what are the customization options on both boats talk with the builders and I am sure you will find out what is the one you prefer.

Already checked distance between both yards. Just 87.5 km Decisions based on feelings are not the best in such a case

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The JPK is an interresting boat, certainly fast, but I wish builders would go back to respect the need for ventilation for a cruising situation, besides the wed night around the cans. The JPK is an extreme example, and it's primary use will be racing, but most newer production boats show the same trend, more light, less opening portholes and hatches. Hardly any of them have dorades, or solarvents. I wonder why, it's not that much expense to do that.
Another trend is the linear galley as boats have gotten fatter. Not really optimized for cooking while underway, and also the loss of a good seaberth, and extra settee. But I think personal preferences and use will differ on that.

That orange table top might be a lid or something, removed on the second photo? Donīt know really! Strange choice of color though

I have been looking at the Pogo 30 as well, I guess I have to wait until itīs finished. On the pictures it appears to lack cockpit backrests, which might be a safety concern with the kids. But they are nice boats, arenīt they!

I hope Eric will share some more experiences from the 12.50. Iīd be really interested in how the boat performes in flat water and at what windspeeds it will start planing without the help of surfing.

Kind regards,
Mr W

Regarding The JPK is an extreme example, and it's primary use will be racing, you cannot be more off. The 38 is the ONLY JPK that has nothing to do with racing and is thought exclusively for cruising. That is JPK idea of a cruising boat and it seems it is not yours.

Regarding ventilation I don’t see a problem but if you want JPK will open all the holes you want or almost. This is a boat with a good level of customization.

Regarding less openings on the hull (and more light and outside views) as a tendency you are right specially in what regards to lateral small openings in the cabin. They all with time will let water in, so no more of that. The tendency is to substitute that with bigger and a superior number of hatches especially on the saloon.

Paulo

Well, do you have also test sailed the boats, maybe the feeling at the rudder will make the difference
