The Tradewind 35 is well-proven design and has gained a cult following with those looking for a traditional-style blue water cruising boat. The classic heavy displacement hull, long keel, full-depth rudder, practical flush foredeck and deep well protected cockpit combine to create an easily controlled short-handed cruiser. Examples can be found cruising in all corners of the globe with many being home to long-term live aboards having completed multiple world circuits.

Now reluctantly offered for sale after a change of direction for the owners the boat is lying afloat, in commission and available for immediate viewing.

'While most long-keel yachts have relatively limited accommodation relative to their overall length, this John Rock design that was built from the mid-1980s to late 1990s is one of a number of exceptions. The boat is a development of the earlier Tradewind 33, but is much more than a simple Mark 2 version – there were many changes, which resulted in a larger and significantly more sophisticated boat.
The result is a solid go-anywhere cruising yacht that offers an excellent feeling of space. This is partly a result of a smallish cockpit – though if you’re voyaging long distances with a small crew there’s an argument this is preferable to a large open area – but more to do with high freeboard and almost flush deck. This gives the hull an impressive amount of volume, much of which is put to good use for storage, while headroom below the small coachroof is well over 7ft (2.2m).'
