1977 Snowgoose 35, in excellent condition with over £20000 spent on refits in the last 3 years
35 foot catamaran
from Prout with Yanmar 3GM30
and Silette drive leg. The engine
is in excellent running order with regular servicing, low hours and a full top end rebuild
in 2014 with new manifold and exhaust elbow
. Drive leg was fully serviced and rebuilt in 2016. New prop 2016
Internally she has been fully rewired and re-plumbed with new parts
to a very high standard. All electrics are new and over spec wiring
has been used on everything. There are fuses
for everything. LED bulbs in all lights including the anchor
light and sailing red and greens. Low amp Cafremo fans fitted in saloon
and main cabin
, TV/DVD player, two inverters, 800w and 3500w (both with high amp cables
fuses). There are 400w of solar panels
feeding a top of the range Prostar Solar
and 6 Trojan batteries, all under 2 years old. Total domestic capacity is 675w. There is an electric Windlass
with a separate sealed 120Ah battery
no heavy duty cables
run he length of the boat). The solar panels
provide more than enough power year round and we never need to run the engine
to charge. When the engine running however, the Sterling Alternator
to Battery charger
unit puts maximum amps in to the batteries at all times. A ProDigital 40A charger tops up quickly when on shore power
There is a super insulated 12v fridge and cooking
extractor fan too. There are various hard wired USB and “lighter” sockets for charging
phones, IPads etc
Two 150L water tanks
(refurbished with new potable safe epoxy
lining in 2013) give 300L of pressurised water
- filtered first through charcoal and then for drinking separately through a Seagull filter. There is a shower
in the heads with a new teak
grate and a deck shower
by the swim platform. A 20l water heater provides plenty of pressurised hot water on board. Water can be heated with diesel
There is also full wet central heating
using a diesel Webasto ThermoTop 5Kw heater. This feeds two light weight radiators and towel rail and is fully programmable for time on and off etc. Provides full heating
for even the coldest winters and unlike blown air heating it is quiet and uses very low amps to run the water pump.
has a twin gas hob and a good size gas oven
as well as a stainless basin and plenty of storage
cupboards and a gas detector. (Gas hoses were changed in 2015 and all fittings inspected)
Twin sofas in cream leather look along with a new teak
table in the saloon
make an inviting environment
to sit, with large windows all around and new head
linings in 2016. The walls are panelled in cherry faced marine plywood
Forward there is a private double cabin
with great views and a separate dressing room attached with hanging rails and built in wardrobe.
Aft there are two single
cabins with new head
linings and reading lights. Under the rear bunks are huge storage
All windows and hatches are either new or refurbished and there are no leaks
. Blinds are fitted to all windows.
The large cockpit
has a new teak grate and custom made seating in Sunbrella fabric
. There is a Vetus captains chair and a full custom cockpit
cover providing shade or weather
protection. A 1 year old boom tent in sunbrella is also included.
and log instruments are fitted and all work perfectly, with a new wind
anemometer fitted in 2013 and the depth
and log in 2014. There is a Simrad
NSS9 touch screen
chart plotter / radar screen
(all 2014). A Navicom VHF radio
receiver is fitted.
All white sails
are Jeckells and were new in 2013 (a second spare Genoa
is 7 years old and still in good condition) and the spinnaker
is 2014 Crusader.
All running rigging
is under 3 years old and is changed end for end yearly and the standing rigging
is oversized for absolute safety and peace of mind.
There is the usual mix of safety equipment
, 3 electric bilge
pumps and one manual (never used as the bilges are always bone dry), Horseshoe buoy, 4 life jackets (all in service
date) etc. 4 extinguishers are on board and all in date. Also coastal flare kit in date.
A custom stainless bow roller and 25Kg Rocna anchor
on 60m chain are up front, with two bridles; one for normal use and a second extra length for storm use. A 900w windlass
makes easy work of anchoring
and there is a Fortress
as a kedge or stern anchor. A genuine 15Kg Bruce is the spare bower anchor.
is hydraulic with new rams fitted in 2016 (rebuilt old Vetus rams on board as spares). There is a hydraulic Global 770 (Cetrek 770) autopilot
which whilst older is in full working order.
The bottom was copper coated in 2015 and new rudder
very well, averaging 6 knots (will also do 6 knots under engine) but at times making 9 without currents to help. She will sail from about 45 degrees in to wind but really picks up at 60 degrees. Downwind is a dream, comfortable and stable. All controls lead to the cockpit with a reliable roller furling genoa
and an Easy Reef behind the mast
rolling main. There is also a Yankee stay sail (also roller furling
though the drum has been repaired but works perfectly). A storm sail is also included and whilst over 10 years old is unused so in new condition.
This is an excellent safe boat
for cruising and has been around the world. Ideal for those wanting to cruise
long term as everything has been fine tuned to do exactly that over the last three years. There are great deck
spaces to sunbathe or find shade, a solid front deck for added safety when working up front, great visibility and comfort, a reliable solid engine and reasonable performance under sail with total safety (no Snowgoose has ever sunk or over turned and with 4 sealed floatation chambers she cannot sink even if filled with water. With solid hull
and deck (not cored like later models) there is no chance of rot
, there is no sign of osmosis
nor has any Snowgoose 35 ever had any, and yet she only weighs 3500Kg making her nimble compared to most. At 0.9m draft
she will navigate almost anywhere and at 4.6m wide all the French canals are open to you.
She is only for sale
because after 3 years of cruising we found two tiny kittens in Spain
who adopted us and we tried sailing with them for 2 months and they hated it. So we’re moving ashore and looking for a smaller weekend boat
for local trips.
