How would you like to travel around the world in luxury and style using just the power of the wind? Such is the concept behind the design of the locally made J65. “Brand New Day” [hull number two of the J65 series] is a thoroughbred open ocean cruiser. She has returned Newport for the summer, but won’t sit still for long.
This is a boat that likes to get out and “stretch her legs”. The J65 is a powerful elegant sailing yacht that offers easy handling, luxurious accommodation and superb performance. She is arguably the most luxurious J boat ever built. With a boat like this, a house is an option- not a necessity. The kitchen [called a galley on boats] is nicer than what is found in most New York apartments. The living quarters offer all of the comforts of home, yet it all fits inside of a near racing machine. Brand New Day is the kind of boat that inspires daydreams and visions of far away places.
