A MODERN ICON
J Craft 42 Torpedo
CLASSIC STYLE & CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY
J Craft combines classic style & glamour with cutting edge technology, power and contemporary convenience: a finely balanced blend of old and new, where form and function are of equal importance.
A J Craft is all about the details. The touch of the leather, the weight of the switch or the hing action – simple things, imperceptible to most, but for the initiated, all this together adds to the pleasure of owning a Torpedo. The eco-friendly mahogany deck is lacquered and varnished eighteen times for a peerless finish as well as incredible strength and durability. In addition to looking beautiful, it means that the Torpedo can withstand the harshest of the elements while still retaining her film stars good looks.
Not two J Craft Torpedos are ever the same. The unique and individual nature of the wood veneers alone guarantees this fact. The J Craft Torpedo is a chic and capable, entirely hand-built boat with more than 4 000 man-hours going into each one. The small team is quality driven and anything but perfection is good enough. This is also the value behind the Berkeley brand.

La Vita é Bella
Skills, passion, and a never-ending strive to improve will take you far. But to envolve, you need inspiration – and that’s why we traveled to Villa Buonvisi this season, just outside Lucca in Tuscany. Few places inspire us more than this part of Italy. Tuscany is a place built around passion and genuine craftsmanship. Things here are inspired by tradition, yet often with a modern twist to fit the ideals of the 21st century – and always done with extraordinary attention to detail.
We get a lot of our inspiration from true artisans, and Tuscany is full of craftsmen doing everything from ceramics and glass blowing, to leather production and lace embroidery. But, for us, it’s equally inspiring to hear the Italian wine producers talk about their passion for Sangiovese grapes, or to see an aged chef handle a Bistecca Fiorentina with absolute love and respect.
After all, we’re all doing the same thing. We’re using our genuine passion for craftsmanship to show the Gentle Man that life is full of beautiful things – and most of them are still out there, just waiting to be found.
THE GENTLE MAN
Time-honoured traditions continue in today’s gentleman. Confident, yet humble. This connoisseur is the inspiration behind the Berkeley brand and to everything we do. You can see it in the classic, high quality craftsmanship and our meticulous attention to every detail. Timeless styles ever-so-slightly updated to reflect and embrace the values and lifestyle of the Gentle Man.
