Tillotson & Pearson produced 330 of the J/35 from 1983 to 1992. These are the perfect racing sloop for any condition. This particular J/35 is located on the Chesapeake Bay near Annapolis, MD where it has performed in many of the races including the Annapolis to Newport, Rhode Island races. It came in 2nd overall in the Annapolis to St. Michaels annual regatta and has traveled up and down the bay more time than countable.
The lightweight hull requires a deeper minimum draft of almost 7 feet. 85% of its weight is located in the lower portion of the keel. This gives you and your racing crew plenty of leverage to lead any race you compete in. In addition to the lightweight hull comes a Kevlar Spinnaker pole weighing only 5 pounds!
Sails included with the sale included but not limited to a brand new mainsail, two #1(1 new and 1 older), #2, #3, #4, and 6 shoots. The rigging is set up so you can work from either the port or the starboard side making transitions that much faster.
Below deck is spacious and has enough sleeping berths for all the crew. There is a total of 6 sleeping berths including a bow V-berth, 2 mid-cabin, and 2 extending under the cockpit. The galley features a two-burner, alcohol stove and an icebox.
