Brief details

 

Builder

Trapper Yachts

The Trapper 700 is a spacious fast cruiser, built as a development of the C&C35 fin-keeler. The Trapper 700 had the unusual option for a boat of this size of a centreboard, allowing you to explore shallower anchorages and use moorings unsuitable for normal deep fin-keelers.

Trapper 700

Trapper Yachts was formed in 1970 when Deacons Boatyard took over Anstey Yachts, and renamed the company Trapper Yachts. Trapper produced a range of boats including the 500 and 501, and the C&C 35, mostly to designs by the Canadian firm of Cuthbertson and Cassian. The C&C 35 was first built in 1969 in Canada, before production in the UK was taken up by Trapper Yachts.

After building around 20 fin-keeled C&C 35s, Paul Anstey redesigned the deck and coach roof, and also created a centreboard option, and this was marketed as the Trapper 700. It was supplied with fixed keel or centreboard options, the centreboarders being more popular. The plan here shows the centreboard version, the fin-keeler having a shorter and deeper sharks-fin shaped iron keel.


The Trapper 700 is one of the very few performance-orientated yachts available of this size with a centreboard, making it a very practical fast cruiser, particularly in these days of difficulty finding deep water moorings.

The centreboard is raised by a winch on the coachroof by the cockpit, which raises a wire led through the S/S tube seen here in the forward part of the saloon. Saloon headroom is 6' 1". The headlinings are an inner GRP moulding, so cannot suffer from the sag common to vinyl linings.

The yacht illustrated has teak decks, which were optional when the boats were new.

The pivoting centreboard weighs approx 600 lbs, and lifts into the fixed iron fin keel, which provides most of the ballast, and is sufficiently deep to allow reasonable sailing performance on all points of sail even with the centreboard raised. With the centreboard lowered she has over 7' draught, and reportedly as good a windward performance as the deeper fixed keel versions of the design.
