I currently have a Pearson 30 and was interested in moving up to a bigger boat for cruising and maybe some racing. Does anyone know about the express 35 ; there is one for sale in my area. I would be sailing mostly with my wife and friends.
are you sure it is not a 34? if it is a mislabled 34, find puddinglegs as he has hull #1. He may also know something about that boat too.
The Express 35 is a Gorman Express (Ontario CAN), not an Alsberg Bros. Express. (Santa Cruz CA)
Here's the former: EXPRESS 35 (GOMAN) sailboat on sailboatdata.com
SailingJoy.com - Resources - Sailboat Specifications - Goman - Express 35
Click some more and you'll find there are 3 versions of the E-35 including one with a shorter keel and smaller rig.
And the latter: EXPRESS 34 sailboat on sailboatdata.com
SailingJoy.com - Resources - Sailboat Specifications - Express 34
I've never seen an Express 35, but the specs for the deeper keel versions look good!
The Goman Express boats were designed by Steve Killing, a respected Canadian designer. I've not seen a 35 either, but we had a 30 in the area that was quite competitive.
I too like the look of the layout and the specs.. rare around here but I would think that boat would be on my 'list' too if I was shopping.
To the OP... if this is still on the market, it should also be on your list, especially if it's hull #1 (the only O34 built by Pacific Boat Works... lighter, better glass work and build quality than the Ericson boats, but they're not bad either :) :

Having been aboard some Pacific Boats models of the 911S, I would agree that they finished their boats out a bit better, but would not agree that their "quality" was any higher.
ps: that listing referenced in the above URL is outdated; that particular boat is sold.
