The hull is not very different from the one of a Pogo 10.50, with just about 8 less cm of beam but the boat has a much better cruising interior and that means a more heavy boat. The Pogo 10.50 light weight is only 3.600kg while they announce for the Ocean 35 a weight between 3800 kg and 5500kg. This difference seems to me too much to be the difference between minimum sailing condition and max load (on a 35ft that should be about 1000kg) so they are talking probably about a light weight of a much more naked boat in what regards 3800kg. Certainly a boat with the great cruising interior that we can see on the pictures would weight more even if the 5500kg seems too much to me...

Bottom point, yes probably the Ocean 35 can be almost as fast or as fast has the Pogo 10.50 but on a lighter version (in what regards the interior) than the one that is pictured on their site, this one:



Miracles are hard to get and there is a reason for that rather naked and somewhat poor interior on the Pogo
