Knutson K-35

Looking for other Knutson K-35 Yawl owners out there. Don't tell me I'm the only one with a Thomas Knutson Yawl.

Hi there, I am about to make the plunge into a Knuston 35, it is in great shape.. by this I mean solid, no rot anywhere, extremely well maintained. ( of course I am blinded by this point by the beauty of the boat - it may in fact be full of holes and I am just too awestruck to see them)

Just wondering if you have any advice on what they are worth in top condition? (1958 sloop rig - Diesel westerbrake also great condition ). Also how are they on offshore ( i.e. panama - galapagos ), any dreadful points of sail? Anything you can tell me in general would be much appreciated.

Thank you ever so much!

I don't know what the values are to be honest. As they say, beauty's in the eye of the beholder. As for bad points of sail? I have a modified (by the factory) yawl. I've not found any bad points of sail if the sails are good. I've had Oh Joy out in 50+ several times and the only complaint I have is the amount of work required in a quartering sea but I suppose that any tiller boat would be the same. She is a smooth sailing and fast (for the design) old girl. Pay special attention around the chainplates and look for discoloration of frames below them.

Thank you Charlie, much appreciate, I am going to be moving the boat to fresh water, I have to confirm that wont be a disaster to the hull, and then I think I am good to go. The 50 + is reassuring... I guess that answers the sea worthy questions.

I will keep you posted and send some pictures when I go back out there.

Knutson on the East Coast

A friend of mine just purchased a k-35 yawl. Originally, "Elane" is now on the Sassafras river on the Chesapeake. From what I understand she's in great shape. If I get some pics I'll post.
Surprised how little info there is out there. Any helpful links or sites???
