Pros:
Cons:

Ketch rig , centercockpit .. nice boat for the money
Sails ok - real nice on genoa and mizzen (take the main
down for 20 kn winds)
I would like to hear from similar owners - especially if there
are more tips for ketch rigs. Also this boat uses seawater for direct engine cooling - is this ok in salt water? - the boat is moored in fresh water in Detroit.

Pros:
Cons:

I recently purchased Hull #107 in San Diego. I have to report that once launched in Seattle, the raw water 3-cyl Nanni/Kubota 22.5 hp diesel pushes the boat along nicely at about 7-8 knots. Due to the high freeboard and performance/cruising hull design, the bow is easily blown off when at a stand still.

Once the booms, sails and self tending genoa were reassembled, the boats sails beautifully. As reported in Motorboat& Sailing back in 1972, when the first models were introduced, this boats glides along under mizzen and genoa alone. With main raised, the boat gains lift and settles nicely on its performance/cruising hull. The ratios indicate that this boat is moderate displacement with a fairly comfortable motion at sea. But you should do the numbers yourself and see for yourself.


Living aboard for 7 months now, I am considered by my neighbors to be living "palatially". Need I say more?

For 30 years prior to my purchase, the boat has been in saltwater, and the wear and tear shows on all the metal, including the keel. My next big project is to put an Interlux external keel treatment and bottom paint, as the keel is showing weeping rust around the flange (where it attaches to the hull). The keel bolts are in fantastic shape (as viewed from the cabin sole).

Next on the list, is to refit ALL deck fittings (stanchions, cleats, chainplates, and reinforce the forepeak under the anchor windlass). The deck, in general, is sturdily and strongly constructed. I have no doubt that it could withstand a pounding from 20 ft seas.

The engine raw water intake and cockpit thru-hulls need replacing. The engine overall, is so clean, you could cook and eat off of it.

I look forward to many years of living and sailing aboard my Coronado 35, which I have longed for nearly 20 years since my sailing on San Francisco Bay and seeing these titans for the first time. My boat has seen many cruising miles from its first homeport in Sacramento to the cruising grounds of Mexico, and back to San Diego. Now, the waters of Puget Sound, San Juan, and inward passage await.

Pros: Solidly built, Incredibly spacious inside & out, great value
Cons: Poor handling under power, high windage

Well-suited as a liveaboard, but a surprisingly good sailor as well. Slow in light air but nicely responsive in anything more than that. I've had her in 10' breaking seas with no bimini or dodger and still stayed dry. Rigging is a bit undersized but the build quality is generally quite good. Heavily-built in a low-tech way. Nothing fancy, just lots of glass and structural reinforcement. Think of it as a Columbia 34 with a 2nd story.

Pros: Verry comforteble cruising, good sailig qualities
Cons: No problems

We have the Europeen version, built in Barcelona Spain.
Bought her in 1994 for 50.000 euro and dit a complete refit in 4 years for 20.000 euro.
Now SHE is our second home, and sails perfect in all conditiones.Good speed.
I made duble foor sails on rolers, Genua 34m2, highaspect 17m2 self tacking, main 22m2 and mizen 8m2 so we can set sails for all conditions.
Verry roomy interior and good layout for a cruiser.
As far as I know there are 4 Coronado 35 in the Netherlands.
