1980 | 35' Bristol Sailboat for Sale


Bristol 35.5C sailboat for saleExtravagance The Bristol 35.5C is a high quality, solidly built boat that has withstood the test of time. Designed by Ted Hood and built by Bristol Yachts in Bristol Rhode Island, Extravagance is an outstanding example of a centerboard cruising boat. Hood knew more about designing centerboard cruising boats than anyone and he designed a winner in the 35.5C, saying “This one just turned out great. She goes right along, doesn’t she!” He even owned one himself.

One of the few that have been properly cared for throughout her life, Extravagance is truly a beautiful boat that is turn-key and ready to sail today. With her centerboard up she draws just 3 feet 9 inches. Couple that with her excellent light to moderate air performance and the 35.5C is a clear choice for the Chesapeake, and with her reputation as a sea kindly boat, she can take you well beyond. One owner reported “On a broad reach in 35-knot winds, big seas, sailing under the genoa reefed down to ~90 percent, I was amazed to find the motion relatively smooth, like a train on a track.” Another said “I have experienced motor sailing into 5- to 8-foot swells, alongside a friend’s boat … the other boat pounded so hard they slowed down to avoid damaging the very well-built boat. Our Bristol sliced through the waves, without pounding, maintaining our usual speed and comfort.”

Purchased at the Annapolis boat show in 1980 just 6 months after her commissioning, Extravagance’s owner has meticulously maintained her ever since. This yacht is clean, neat and shows extremely well. She is in better shape than many boats 1/3 her age and is one of the finest 35.5C’s on the market today.
