I've owned my Bristol 35 for nine years and am very pleased with it. Not fast, not flashy, just a good, tough, old boat.

Well all very interesting, I use to own a J 35 (PHRF 75), fast and fun and also did a lot of crusing with it. Sold it about 4 years ago, and just recently bought a Bristol 34. Dosn't have as much sail area and seems to be a little tender. But could be the wayI am sailing it.

Although sometimes I wish I still had the J35, the bristol 34 is growing on me. With new sails and watching the main sail trim it is a fun boat to sail even in 5 to 10knts. Healing improves the lack of water line lenght, and the lines are nice. A good looking boat.

The Bristol (33) 34 has always been one of my favorite boats of that era. They were fast and well mannered for that period. Build quility was above average, and they had a little better sailplan proportion than most boats of the CCA era. They were very different boats than the 35 upon which this thread is based.

Sorry, I am getting confused on the Bristols that were made 33, 34, 35, 35-5 and who design them.

The Bristol 32 was an early Ted Hood Design. It was replaced by the Bristol 30 and the Bristol 33 both of which were designed by Halsey Herreshoff. Herreshoff and Bristol later made minor improvements to the 33 design and called the revised design the Bristol 34.

The Bristol 35 was an earlier John Alden and Associates design (John Alden was long gone by the time this boat was designed). which was also replaced by the 33. The Bristol 30 was replaced by the Bristol 29.9 an inferior IOR era design in my opinion.

The 35.5 was a later Ted Hood and Dieter Empacher design that replaced the Bristol 34.
