Sail Area

672 sq ft (main and No 1 genoa)

A solid long-keel cruising yacht from Trident Marine - the aft-cockpit variant of the Warrior 35.  Challengers and Warriors are very highly regarded as blue water cruisers, with many long-distance passages to their credit.

Engine bhp


Keel type

Long keel

Trident Marine have produced three variations on the same Angus Primrose designed 35 foot hull since the late 1970s, the Warrior (centre cockpit), Challenger (aft cockpit) and Voyager (pilothouse) versions.  The yachts were still in limited production until around 2001, and are sought after as blue water cruisers.  With their long keel, moderate draught and displacement, and excellent ballast ratio, they are a good modern interpretation of a traditional cruising yacht.

Photographs Yachtsnet


The yacht shown here is not a standard Trident Marine fit-out - she was fitted out by another boatyard

Although many were completed by Trident, and other yards, a large number were also home-completed from bare hulls, so fit-out quality can be highly variable. Together with a very long production run, this results in a very wide range of current prices
