Beautiful example of this classic A.A. Truman design. The Ocean 35 was built by Wallasea Bay Yacht Station to an extremely high standard which is evident in her condition today. Built of carvel Mahogany planking on Oak frames, double ended with masthead rig the boat looks as elegant today as the day she was launched.
The subject of two extensive rebuilds (Jacky Kay, Ardrishaig 2000 & A.R. Way 2010) in her recent history the boat benefits from much upgrading and remedial works such as new decks and a very practical doghouse addition.
Built for ocean cruising in previous ownerships she has been cruised extensively in and around Scotland, Ireland, Spain, Portugal and the Med; proving to be a very capable and quick passage maker.

Below decks the interior is sumptuously finished in deep rich varnished mahogany and real leather upholstery, with lots of period brass fittings the interior feels cosy and homely.
The forepeak provides a double berth with storage provided below and small single dressing chair with compact hanging locker opposite.
The heads compartment is situated between the forepeak and main saloon with Blakes seatoilet, sink and vanity unit.
The saloon and galley share the midships section of the boat, with a large comfy settee to port and the long galley to starboard. The settee converts to a good sized single berth.
The raised after section of the saloon inside the doghouse has a further two single seats and great all round vision allowing crew to seek shelter in poor weather.
The rig is not believed to be original being of alloy construction. With all spars finished in white the modern rig does not detract from the stunning appearance of the boat overall.
A stackpack lazy jack system has been fitted allowing the mainsail to be easily managed by a small crew. The genoa is fitted on a Rotostay roller reefing system again for easy management with a small crew.
Following the recent re-fits and refurbishments the boat looks in immaculate condition on deck.
The teak decks were replaced in the 2000 refit with a new deck being fitted laid on a marine ply sub deck, providing a watertight deck. All timber work is finished in high quality mahogany with high gloss varnish.
The cockpit provides a compact and safe area for the crew at the stern with the wheel located just aft of centre. All instruments are clearly visible and easily reachable mounted on the aft end of the doghouse.
The boat has been fitted with a modern light weight marine diesel engine, a Vetus M4.17 producing 42hp. The engine is capable at pushing the boat along at more than 8 knots and allows easy cruising at 7 knots.
Rope cutters are fitted to the sterngear.
