This is truly an amazing boat! If you are looking for style, character and ability, you have a solid candidate in this classic beauty! Just enough teak to create an attractive look, yet not keep you working on the boat, more than sailing it. Built and Designed in the 70's when fiberglass boat hulls were thick and heavy. These boats were built specifically for ocean voyages and adventures. The builders wanted to provide an overqualified cruiser for safely crossing oceans and withstanding all sorts of weather! They did a great job! The perfect boat to have! If you ever found yourself wanting to get out, or needing to get out, fill up on provisions, install yourself a water maker to have access to all the freshwater you'll need, and she will take you! The heavy hulled Fuji 35 is a John Alden "blue water" design cutter rig, easy to sail, full keel vessel built by the Fuji Ship Builders of Yokosuka, Japan. Born from the heavy fiberglass molds of the Mariner Bluewater sailboats, the Fuji offers exceptional craftsmanship not only in its hull design, stoutness and exceptional construction, also in the woodwork and fit and finish. Clearly revealing itself in a very charming interior. The wall mounted, coal burning heater/ fireplace, adds even more benefits and charm, burns clean, burns more steadily and longer, and generates no creosote. The name "Tern" as an aquatic bird, known for its superior flight ability and capable of long efficient journeys compared to other marine or aquatic birds. Tern is powered by a Perkins 50 hp diesel, which his a big plus! Often, sail boats of this size will have an engine with a 25 - 30 HP motor. Also Has upgraded Furuno color radar chartplotter, Tacktick windpoint/windspeed depth and speed and Autopilot. Definitely a top candidate if you are looking for a solid safe boat to explore in. She is just really an amazing passage maker.
Of Course most boats for sale need a little work, no difference here. There should be nothing major, and some things we just won't know until a survey is done, but this boat is solid and priced well for what she offers.
An outstanding option for a passage maker. This Boat is well equipped, sails, motor, rigging, all in great condition. Teak is in good condition.
