Sailplan

The Challenger 35 is one of three 35 foot designs by Angus Primrose for Trident Marine. The three designs share the same hull moulding, but have different deck mouldings and interiors. The Challenger 35 is a very traditional aft cockpit cruiser, the Warrior 35 has a centre cockpit layout, whilst the Voyager 35 has a large deck saloon.

 

These three designs were built by Trident Marine from around 1980 to the mid 1990s. The hull form is a classic long keel with cutaway forefoot, with very moderate draught and displacement and an excellent ballast ratio. Both the Challenger and Warrior versions have always been regarded as serious blue water capable cruisers.

Heater

A Taylors heater is bulkhead-mounted in the saloon, but it has not been used since a Mikuni blown hot air diesel heater was fitted.

 

Although the Taylors (running on paraffin or diesel) was effective the present keeper of the boat owner was worried about a child on board touching the hot flue pipe.
