Like all Bruce King designs, the Ericson 35II is fast yet forgiving on all points of sail. Overall, I'm very satisfied. This is my 2nd new Ericson.

Pros:
Cons:

"Aged" design looks good but offers less interior volume than more "modern" designs. Long over-hangs, especially at stern, limit waterline length to 25'--result is a "slower" and "smaller" boat than some with same LOA (but longer LOD). Boat is well made, I have had few beefs or problems. No blisters. Had to replace main bulkhead due to rot and that's a big job. Carefully inspect bulkhead. Remove trim covering chainplates to get good access. It is nearly impossible to waterproof the deck where the chainplate passes through (two rigid pieces that move independently intersect). Needs more ventilation. Opening ports are a good upgrade. On my boat storage space has been canabalized for holding tank, pressure water tank, stove and heater tanks. Not too much left! The boat sails very well. The motion is comfortable in nearly any sea (big following sea pushes the stern around--but that's not unusual). It is tender and likes a first reef at about 18Kts. I sail in San Francisco, where it is often windy. I have a cut-down "Summer main" that's about 15% smaller than designed and still reef pretty early. I've heard from one owner who increased the rudder size for better control. I haven't felt the need for this, perhaps because of my smaller main and readiness to reef. This is probably not the boat to buy if you plan to chuck it all and sail around the world. But for the rest of us, it is a great coastal cruiser. Comfortable overnight (or "over-week") and the giant cockpit makes for an excellent daysailer (plenty of room for 6 adults).

Pros:
Cons:

WATCH THE BULKHEADS,THEY ARE PRONE TO ROTTING AROUND THE CHAIN PLATES IF ANY WATER ENTERS THERE. BOAT SAILS GREAT.THEY ARE A LITTLE TENDER BUT FAST. NARROW BEAM MAKES IT A LITTLE SMALL COMPARED TO NEWER 35S,BUT OVERALL A GREAT BOAT.

Pros:
Cons:

Great boat when it was new, and its still a classic today. It was built as a racer/cruiser... but is a cruiser/racer by todays standards. Complete refit completed 2 years ago to bring her up to todays standards. She sails good on all points of sail, but likes main reefed above 17 knots. Father was original owner... grew up on this boat & plan to keep her many more years.

bought one in 2000(a 1971model hull200).prvious owner replaced bulkhead and fuel&water tanks. i installed new universal diesel,all new standing rigging,new sails,new interior, and all new electronics. basically all that's left of original boat is the hull&deck. boat goes to weather very well (tacks through 70 degrees in 12-15 kts/wind). sails best well heeled over(18-20 degrees). have done 7.3kts closehauled in 15-17apparent.
