Sailboats - Cruising


With her classic lines Pathfinder is a real head turner,  but she is not all good looks as she is an exceptionally good performer under sail aquitting herself very well in mixed club racing as well as turning in very fast average speeds when making long passages.  Designed for short haul cruising with a boom tent  as a night time shelter, this is a superb dayboat with room for a large family but handling consistent with the singlehanded sailor. Like most boats in the JW range Pathfinder is designed for beginner boatbuilders requiring only basic woodworking skills and simple tools to achieve eye catching looks and competitive performance. There is an option of three rigs, competitive sloop rig, gaff sloop and yawl as shown in the pictures.  The yawl is most popular with its shorter masts and many different sail combinations,  the ability to heave to head to wind with the mizzen sheeted in plus its ability to self steer on a long leg.
