The J/99 is the newest addition to the J Sport range, combining headroom and comfortable interior accommodation with the tiller-driven responsiveness of a sport boat. The sail and deck plan are optimized for easy handling with fewer crew, and incorporate the latest developments from the award-winning J/121 and the new Offshore Sailing World champion J/112E.

Pauger Carbon was approached by J/99′ owner to prepare the complete carbon package, which includes:

  • High-modulus weight 37kg (155 x 86 mm), carbon masthead with extra long overhang;
  • Mast full length: 15 740 mm;
  • High-strength regular carbon fiber pre-preg boom (190 x 85mm) – 4550 mm length – 11 kg;
  • Light-weight Pauger Carbon Vang complete weight: 2 kg (including dyneema purchase 5:1)
  • Pauger – BSI/Blue Wave complete Carbon system including captang, terminals and turnbuckles, V1 size: 7,4mm with the weight save of 7,4kg.
  • Karver KMH2 internal lock
  • Reckmann-Holmatro external Hydraulic Mast Jack system
  • Outhaul purchase 8:1 system in boom with low friction rings
  • Rod forestay with BSI turnbuckle


Upgrading your mast from aluminium to carbon is a huge performance gain. Weight saving will be ~45-35%.
However, you can go further…
Choose high-modulus carbon fiber! You can trim an additional ~10-15% weight from the standard carbon mast weight. Plus smaller mast section.
Choose carbon standing rigging! ~75% weight saving from the Nitronic50 rod cable weight
Choose a carbon boom! ~35% weight saving from the aluminium boom weight
Choose the carbon boom vang! ~50% weight saving from the aluminium vang weight
From the above mentioned, our client’s J/99 has it all.
