Johnson 18 Class


The Johnson 18 is one of the new generation sportboats. It is the first computer-optimized one-design small sailboat, intended to maximize enjoyment of the sport of sailing across the widest possible range of age, size, and skill level.

The Johnson 18 Class Association is a non-profit organization devoted to the needs of Johnson 18 owners, and offering information and contacts to people interested in these boats. Come sail with us!
