Pros:
Cons:





A fast and comfy boat. Excellent weekender, cruiser, and club PHRF racer. Build quality is excellent. Bruce King designs are very pleasing to the eye. Will motor at 7knts w/ a 21 hp universal and 3 blade prop. A little tender at first, but will go like a train when she gets on her shoulder.
Carry a full main and 155 gen up to 18 to 20, and then gets a little unrully. Outstanding interior for a 35 ft boat that looks this good. Stall shower is a great feature on this size and style boat. I have 10 years of SAIL, and 3 years worth of SAILING magazines on the shelf, and all of those "things that work" projects in the back were already designed into this boat. ie. foot pump to drain both ice boxes to the sink rather than drain to the bilge. etc. etc.
All lines are lead to the cockpit, and placement of hardware is excellent. Solid lead keel is very durable.
Lack of all but the most basic exterior teak is a bonus.
Molded toe rail is so much better than teak.
Pacific Seacraft is doing an admiral job of supporting the Ericson line. If you need parts, ask for Robin (male), he is the most familiar w/ the line and has helped get parts.
I have recently purchased a olding tank, and new aluminum rubrail. That is a big plus when purchasing a boat from a manufacturer that went belly up almost a decade ago...
I love this boat. . .
