I’ll probably catch some heat from the serious sailors out there, but the J Craft Torpedo is just too beautiful to deny. In a series of posts dedicated to regattas, it certainly earns its place.
Each of these vintage-style cruisers is handcrafted on the Swedish island of Gotland, home to the country’s boat-building industry since the days of the Vikings. Owned by venture capitalist and avid motorist, Johan Attvik, J Craft launches offer state-of-the-art technology, paired with eco-conscious production and exquisite details. According to the company, the boat carries a fuel capacity of 350 nautical miles, ensuring that all of the Mediterranean’s most glamorous destinations – from Ibiza to Monaco and on to Palermo – are readily accessible for those champagne refills.
Background note: a nice confluence of topics led me to this posting. The upcoming New York Classic Week (Oct 8, 9 & 10) featuring the Monaco Friendship Regatta; Jetsetter’s flash sale on Sweden’s Hotel J (ending in three days) and a recent sighting of Viking vampire Eric Northman (aka Alexander Skarsgård).
