Pros:
Cons:


53 ft. LOA, but 37ft. waterline, very traditional design.Fiberglass, cored hull & deck with NO deck to hull joint (glassed together). Aft cockpit sloop, 30k lbs displacement w/ 14k lbs external keel (very stiff boat)built for offshore. Designer: Brandylmyer. Early 70's hull design, very seaworthy, exteremly stable. Narrow beam 13ft, so it goes to weather in heavy seas like a champ. Also performs VERY well in light air. Weaknesses: It makes me want to take it cruising.
I would like to connect with other Spencer owners.

Pros:
Cons:

Excellent design. Good sea berths and in-port cabin. Very fast and built for bluewater. Only 33 built that I am aware of. Excellent tankage 300 gals H2O/265 diesel. About 6'4" headroom. Very tough rig and very stiff. Takes alot of sail/wind to put her on her ear. Tracks & points well. One of the best "older" boats out there. Hal Roth had a Spencer 35 and he tells of putting his Spencer on the rocks in Chile and how it pounded there for days and it went on "after repair" to complete his voyage.
