UPDATE: The orginal posting was March 2018 (All original post information still accurate). Since then, I have been unable to keep up with the maintenance (mostly cosmetic) of the boat and am in the process of restoring. I have dropped the price $17k until I complete the renovations (End of January) Once completed, the price will increase again.

This Sothern Cross 35 is hull #9 out of the C.E. Ryder factory in Bristol Rhode Island. It was designed by the renowned Thomas Gillmer and is a true blue-water boat. The SC 35 is a exceedingly robust and seaworthy construction of these boats that far exceeds the craftsmanship in other, often lower priced, kit boats boasting the same name. The kit boats are built by owners and the quality can vary greatly.

Nellie is wide (11'5") beamed, canoed stern, and a lovely sweeping sheerline that keeps it dry and stable in rough conditions. It has a fully encapsulated lead fin keel--making for surprisingly nimble performance and an aperture-enclosed skeg-mounted rudder. An Airex foam core between two very generous layers of glass keeps sound/cold out and heat in and keeps you safe in the event of an object strike. She has a rugged deck hull seal with two 90 degree forms joined under and solid teak cap rail and inboard mounted shrouds for easy passage on the deck. She has a 90 gallon freshwater capacity (an additional 25 gal on deck) and 35 gallon fuel capacity.

I am her 4th owner (2013) and have sailed approximately 7,000 miles throughout the Southeast U.S. and Bahamas. When I purchased Nellie, she had been neglected by an owner who brought the dream." I have put over $30,000 into this boatbringing her back to life.

I have lived on Nellie and sailed her for 5 yearsonly putting her in dry storage twice for a few months. I am a commercial captain, professional rigger and apprentice boat builder. I sail from job to job using Nellie as my home. She has to be sea worthy and all systemsboth sailing and home amenities must be fully functional at all times, so when it breaks, I fix it.

Equipment: I replaced the 30 year old Navtec Rod rigging with 3/8 1x19 stainless (2015), installed new mechanical Sta-Lok terminals (deck and aloft), Hyan open-body chomed bronze turnbuckles, and Hyan chromed bronze deck fittings, purchased a Profurl furling for the inner jib/staysail, and replaced all running rigging.

In 2017, I rebuilt the deck on the bow with new 3/8 marine ply-wood, 15 layers of glass, sealed with west systems epoxy, installed a new Lofrans Kobra1,900lb instant/380lb working load ($2,000 /-) windless with all new wiring, solenoids, etc, installed over-sized backing plates for all cleats/windless with Garolite G10 composite and a new 4 1,000 cu-ft/hour Nicro stainless solar vent, and repainted all lower decks with kiwi grip.

Other replacements and renovations include, 150 of new 3/8 G4 chain (2016), new sail covers (2016), new Mastervolt 20amp battery charging systems (2015), 4 new Trojan T-105 batteries (2016), new SSB antenna, new stainless 1 prop shaft (2014), factory refurbished 16 self-feathering MaxProp from PYI (2016), new PYI prop shaft seal (2016), replaced all plastic throu-hull fitting with new solid bronze fittings (2015), new port-light gaskets (2017), 3 new Caframo 3 speed fans (2017-5 in total), all interior lights have been updated to LED (2016), new Dometic CU-100 air cooled cold machine refrigeration and new Dometic horizontal evaporator (2017), new alternator and starter (OEM 2016 and had the old ones rebuilt as backups), new Johnson water pump for engine intake (2017 had old one rebuilt for backup), new mixing elbow and heat exchanger (2014), 2 of the 6 sea-cocks have been replaced with new ball-valve models (2015), new 10amp 3.5gal/min Jabsco freshwater pump (2018), new faucets/showerhead in galley and head (2016), new water heater element (2018), new Jabsco head pump assembly (2016), new propane solenoid, hoses, and 2 Worthington rust free vertical orientation tanks (2015-4 in total with old ones having new valves installed), new Jabsco 480GPH belt driven diaphragm bilge pump (2017), and countless others.
