Re: Is Hughes 35 A Offshore Boat ?

Interesting.

According to the S&S website the Northstar/Hughes 35 is to a design that was also built to in the UK, by South Hants Engineering, as the SHE 36. The SHE 36 has a terrific reputation as a good seaboat, not least because one rescued the crew of a competitor and went on to finish the '79 Fastnet. The two boats are not the same - the SHE 36 has a different deck, etc and may differ in other ways too.
