Fully restored cruising sailboat ready to explore.
Built by the renowned CE Ryder Corporation of Bristol, RI, the Southern Cross 35 is a true blue water voyager. A Tom Gillmer design, this canoe-stern cutter rig has a classic elegance to her. Mr. Gillmer's Southern Cross designs are not just beautiful to look at. They are dry, extremely sturdy, fast and have a comfortable sea motion. With wide decks, Airex cored hull, skeg hung rudder, sweeping shear and a cutaway forefoot, the Southern Cross 35 is just meant to go to sea. There were only 65 of these hulls made, many of which were made for owner build-out of the interior. Dayspring was one that was factory finished, resulting in a higher quality yacht.
The Southern Cross 35' Cutter is a well-known, proven, blue water cruiser that will take you anywhere you want to go. They are rugged sea-going boats that are spacious below and are perfect vessels for a cruising couple or for live-aboards. We have taken her from Lake Ontario to Maine via the St.Lawrence Seaway. It was always comfortable and safe in the challenging conditions of the Gulf of St.Lawrence. She now resides back in Lake Ontario's fresh water.
