Description: First $12,000 takes her!!! I need to sell her !!Bristol 35 Yawl 1972
The John Alden designed Bristol 35 is a classic yacht that never quits turning heads. I bought this boat in 1973 when she was only 2 months old, and it’s been in my hands ever since. The original builder’s order included many upgrades at the time, such as replacing the Atomic 4 gas engine with the Volvo MD 2B diesel, and adding the Yawl rig to the stern. I sailed her in the NJ/NY area until 1980, then brought her south to Sarasota. One of the unique aspects is her shoal draft of only 3’7”. Originally designed as a swing keel to 6’6”, she was modified in 1985, had the dagger board removed under the direction of Bristol Yachts, and a stainless steel 7’ x 6” x 3/8” plate installed to cover the board trunk. It was then completely fiber-glassed and faired. This gives the vessel a more rigid attitude, and she tracks wonderful in heavy wind. Complete specifications of the Volvo engine is at Beta Marine in the UK.
Most boats in the early 70’s were very light on std. equipment. Over the years I replaced the external running rigging with internal halyards, added spinnaker gear and winches for around the buoys racing at the yacht club, added electric windlass, and microwave and replaced the Formica counter tops with a tile surface. In 2015 she got a complete Awlgrip job, both topsides and decks, ALL NEW bronze thru-hull fittings, a NEW mainsail rigged for club racing and reefing, and all new sail covers including the roller furling. I have several hank-on jibs (#2 & #3) that I stopped using after installing the roller reefing in 2002, but they will go with the boat. The Volvo MD 2B was completely rebuilt for $2,100, using the same crank, in 2005, and runs like new. I exchanged the 2 small car-style 12 volt batteries with 2 large Gel 8D West Marine batteries for more Elec power. I recently added a flat screen color TV, and replaced the toilet in the head with a new one in 2016. The hot water heater was replaced in 2016 with a Stainless heater, and there is a 3 burner gimbaled stove and inverter 1,000watt
