Is this Sloop an Ericson 35?

I've always admired the clean, simple lines on this boat. Talked briefly to the owner once and I thought he said she was an Ericson 35. That surprised me, as I've looked at Ericson 35's and haven't found any that look like this! If you know and have any other info, please share.

The split cockpit is similar, a shot of the transom would help, but this is not a E 35 MKII. It may be an earlier version, based on what can be seen of the cockpit configuration.

Here's another view of a E35 MKI... can you peek under the tarp for confirmation? the transom looks better.... but the sheer stripe isn't quite right...

It's an Ericson 35-1, made from Alberg 35 molds (sort of). They made about 45 of them in 1967-68.

Thanks! That info will allow me to go to the Ericson Owners site and find out more. What I've learned so far is that 500 lbs of keel was eliminated from the Alberg to make the Ericson. The ports were also changed. Is this the "sort of" you referred to? Was it a good boat and why was it only produced for a year?

Those are S&S designs, right?

No.... early models appear to have been Alberg, or at least Alberg based, most Ericsons are designed by Bruce King, with a few models in the early 80s from Ron Holland (E 33 and E 36) - quick boats, btw.

I don't believe any Ericsons were from S&S

Learn something new everyday. I always thought the Albergs were an S&S design.

Thanks for the info Faster.

Alberg 35's were done by Carl Alberg but the hull form is VERY close to a S&S Pilot ( Hinckley Pilot) .

I've kept an eye out for the ericson version and have never seen one in the flesh. Hadn't heard they were 500 lbs lighter in the keel. Wonder how that affects the boat overall? I don't feel the A35 is overly stiff, but she isn't what I would call tender.

I own a 1962 Alberg 35.

The S&S issue is interesting, because the lines on the Ericson remind me of my Yankee 30 (S&S design). Though, the Ericson is even a little more elegant in my opinion. Every time I pass the Ericson, I think "damn, if the Yankee was just 5 feet longer, I'd never get rid of her!" This doesn't make the Ericson a S&S design of course, but the similarities are striking. Its funny...I don't care about how cars, clothes or other things I consider superficial, look. But when I see lines I like on a sail boat, I'm thinking "Oh Yeah!". The saying is that if a boat looks right, it probably is right. But then....they say that if you can sail the SF bay,you can sail anywhere. While literally true, as an experienced SF Bay Sailor, I think that is the biggest egotistical load of BS I've ever heard! I certainly don't consider myself a seasoned offshore Skipper!
Anyway, I digress! One feature I'm assuming the Ericson has that the Yankee does not is an encapsulated Keel. Gotta love that in an old boat!
