I think you are talking about monohulls?

Jboats, Mumm are fast boats but they are designed to be sailed with a crew.

The crew is needed not only for handling the boat, but also as ballast, siting on the rail, or in the back of the boat while going fast downwind.

If we are talking about going fast solo in an oceangoing boat probably the fastest 35 ft would be a 10,5class boat. They are designed to be ocean-raced solo, or duo. They have water ballast to substitute the weight of the crew on the rail and are a lot more forgiving than a Mumm.

Figaro Class boats are also very quick and are also made for a short crew, but they are slower than a 9,5class boat.

La Classe Figaro Bénéteau

Of course these are relatively new European boats and unless you want a new one, you probably are not going to find them in the US....But you have asked about the fastest

Re: Fastest boats ...30 to 35 foot range.

My observation on the Jboat competing with other cruiser class boats has been that in light wind the J boats all run away with it. If there is any kind of wind and sea they can't cut the mustard. Personally I like the C&C brand for speed and comfort along with reliability but that is just me.

Re: Fastest boats ...30 to 35 foot range.

Here is where to find the ratings:
PHRF New England - Handicapping - Base Handicaps
Some boats sail faster than their rating, some slower. Its like the BCS!

Re: Fastest boats ...30 to 35 foot range.

For example the Long Island Sound area has the most favorable J80 and J105 PHRF numbers in the USA

And don't even change the number for wet and dry sailed J80s

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
