She 31

Brief details



South Hants Marine

One of the classic production cruiser racers from the 1970s, the She 31 still offers excellent performance and useful accommodation. There were several other yachts derived from the original She 31 design, the She 9.5 and She 31 Traveller, which was produced by South Hants Marine as a cruising version, with slightly more headroom, and finally a few boats built as Delta 95s by Laird Adams, with even more headroom, and a revised interior.

The She 31 was one of the most successful and attractive Sparkman & Stephens designed production cruiser-racers. In many ways comparable to the Contessa 32s, which are of the same era, they share the same virtues of excellent handling, all-weather performance and high ultimate stability, as well as being exceptionally pretty. "Yachting Monthly" recently described them as "..... regarded by many as the epitome of good IOR design".

The saloon of the She 31 has two settee berths and two quarterberths, with a vee-berth in the forecabin.

The heads compartment is fairly cramped, with access restricted by the keel-stepped mast.
