The Bristol 35.5 combines quality construction and finish, good sailing performance, and comfortable cruising accommodation in a handsome, traditional package.
Gratifying Comfort In A Performance Cruiser The Bristol 35.5 combines the classically modern design of Ted Hood with the meticulous craftsmanship of Bristol Yachts in a responsive yet comfortable racer-cruiser. With her efficient hull design, the 35.5 features the graceful lines and comfortable layout which provide an un-cramped, uncluttered feeling when above or below decks. This proven design epitomizes the obsessive concern for quality of workmanship and structural integrity built into every Bristol Yacht. Heres what to look for!

Molded high-impact fiberglass reinforced polyester resin largely woven roving, strongest material available. Hull and deck thickness vary to suit structural demands. Deckhouse, deck and cockpit are integrally molded. Deck clamp and cove stripe molded with hull. Non-skid pattern molded into deck, seats cabin top and cockpit.
Main Salon:
Featuring a large dining table (bulkhead mounted) and generous seating for a comfortable living area below decks.
Forward Cabin:
With its traditional V-berth arrangement and selection of fine woods hand-crafted into the closets, berths and dovetailed drawers; the forward stateroom epitomizes the quality workmanship
Navigation Area:
Combining a seakindly quarter berth with a full-sized chart table, the 35.5s navigation area is designed and built for the seagoing skipper. There is ample room for chart storage under the large lift-top table and outboard shelves easily handle books and electronic equipment.
