If you are looking for a beautiful boat with a gorgeous shine, a charming, warm interior with all the comforts of home...
Keep looking because you won't find that on this boat! haha! If, however, you are quite possibly looking for that "Mad Max' type of sailboat, Built rugged and equipped to cruise and conquer the South Pacific Seas, you may have found your boat.
'Troublemaker' is a 35’ Schock masthead sloop, designed as a cruiser racer. It has been very successfully used for club PHRF racing throughout her life, whilst the current skipper has also cruised her. In the 2017 Wet Wednesday racing configuration, Troublemaker won both her class and an overall trophy during 30 + races, completed in a wide range of weather conditions. Troublemaker is configured for ease of handling with either single, double or fully crewed sailing. She has been equipped with new Alpha Ropes, Dyneema halyards and sheets in 2018. Her smooth performance hull has received a new ablative bottom paint in late 2017. She a has a fine 17.5 degree bow entry angle, for good penetration in a chop. With a high ballast displacement ratio of 45% and low displacement to length ratio, she has a proven, well rounded ability, displaying exceptional sailing performance. Troublemaker has a sail area displacement ratio of 22, which allows for efficient sailing and speed even in light air. A new Force 10 propane stove, three auto tiller pilots, two whisker poles, are included in storage. An electric head. A Fortress anchor with chain and three strand nylon rode is on board. Troublemaker is highly recommended to sailors who wish to sail a versatile, performance orientated, mid sized cruiser racer. Please see "Descriptions, Specs, Sails Etc." for a all accessories. Any questions, please contact listing agent.

Spars, Rigging, and Sails
The aluminum double spreader rig is keel stepped. The fixed rigging is an excellent choice of stainless rod, with the hydraulic back stay adjuster replaced with a manually operated dyneema system in 2018. (Dyneema® ropes are made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, or UHMWPE fibers. The end result is a rope that can be up to 15 times stronger than steel and up to 40% stronger than Kevlar and much lighter! Dyneema ropes are more abrasion resistant than high carbon steel, are resistant to UV light, easy to store back-up or extra, and they float!!) Also included are two Harken self tailing winches which were installed within easy reach of the helm. This simplified system is reliable and avoids hydraulic maintenance issues, particularly if longer voyages are planned.
All new running rigging by Alpha Ropes dyneema halyards and sheets were fitted in 2018.
All blocks required are provided to rig for cruising or racing, plus three winch handles. Winches consist of:
2 Harken self tailing #46 2 speed, 2 Lewmar #48 3 speed, 2 Lewmar #40 self tailing.
