Sailing to Success
The story of J/Boats is a classic entrepreneurial tale: with a $20,000 investment and a speedy 24-foot sailboat that Rod Johnstone built in his garage, Rod and his brother Bob Johnstone went into business. That was 1977. Now, that boat—the J/24—has become the most popular recreational offshore keelboat in the world. The Johnstone family has made an undeniable mark on the sailing world.
While other manufacturers may sell more boats, the Johnstones have won the high-end, performance-oriented segment of the market. Theirs is the racer/cruiser category—boats that perform well on the race course but which are comfortable and easy enough for the family to daysail and cruise. It is with knowledgeable, experienced sailors that the Johnstones have done best.
