The J/133 combines cruising comfort with more powerful performance ratios. The easy to manage sailplan allows fewer and less experienced crew, and the extra rig power afforded by a low VCG keel and standard Hall carbon mast will maximize performance across a wide spectrum of conditions.

Mala takes this blend of performance and the ability to cruise to a higher level. She was built with additional storage throughout, shrouds moved outboard to eliminate the rod in the interior, and a non-overlapping jib sail plan makes boat handling a dream.



Starting in the Forward Master, you have a large v-berth with storage below in two curved front drawers. This cabin also features a hanging locker, bureau, settee and private en-suite Vacu-flush head.

Aft in the Main Salon a large J/46 style varnished cherry drop leaf table with bottle storage compartment divides two equal settees that slide out to convert to sleeping berths. Excellent storage is provided out board of both settees. Above the starboard settee you also find a pilot berth and opposite to port the space was used to create more storage cabinets. The interior is finished in a "Herreshoff Style" with white flats and varnished cherry trim. The sole is varnished teak and holly. The galley is aft of the starboard settee and the large forward facing nav station is aft of the port settee.

The Aft Cabin is to starboard. This cabin has a double berth, vinyl siding, vanity with drawers and cabinet, full length shelf, and hanging locker.

Opposite to port you have the Aft head this head has a walk through to the cockpit storage locker, wet locker outboard of the head and jacket store behind the door.
