The Thompson 35 has been designed to fill the gap for a large racing yacht that is capable of being towed on a trailer that can be dry sailed.

This boat has a removable rudder and a lifting keel, there is a central lifting hook on the top of the keel for hoisting onto its custom built trailer. This boat is pure racing with a large roomy cockpit with all sailing controls carefully placed for ease of use, yet we have managed to provide a functional interior for racing and short cruising.

Performance will be exhilarating with a large sail plan and a heavy lead bulb for added stability. The boat is expected to be capable of beating the forty footers upwind and to blow them away downwind. We have completed extensive testing on the design and have shown exceptional light air performance both upwind and downwind and yet it is a very stable and fast boat in a breeze. This boat is ideally suited for both inshore and coastal racing. The hull sections are a development of our successful T30 being fine upfront to allow the boat to sail well in a chop.

These boats are hand made using the best materials and methods available, all the skins and cores are vacuumed in place and post cured using epoxy resins throughout. Carbon, kevlar and
e-glass are used in the hull and decks to provide a strong and stiff structure. The keel incorporates a high tensile beam for safety and stiffness. Spars are carbon fibre with rod rigging. Running backstays are not required, as the mast has been carefully designed to gain forestay tension from the permanent backstay and mainsheet.

The sail configuration uses non overlapping jibs and asymmetric spinnakers. The mainsail has a carefully designed roach profile that allows the air to exhaust when required. The bow prod articulates internally and retracts into the hull when not in use. This allows deeper angles to be sailed downwind. The deck hardware package is Frederiksen and Andersen. We provide a comprehensive sail package to your chosen sailmaker and support from our US team.

The T35 will have a development class rule that will allow for some fine tuning of the boat and no driver or crew type restrictions. However crew weight will be restricted.
