The hull of the MG 335 is made of a hand-laid glassfibre with a balsa core above the waterline and solid laminate below. The hull-deck joint is covered by an aluminum toe rail. The hull shape is moderate with a fine entry, flared topsides, rounded bilges, and flat sections aft. The deck layout is simple and functional with wide side decks, molded non-skid surfaces, stainless steel stanchions and lifelines, bow and stern pulpits, mooring cleats, anchor locker, bow roller, chainplates on the hull sides, cockpit coamings with winch pockets, cockpit locker lids with gas struts, transom ladder, sugar scoop stern with swim platform, tiller steering or optional wheel steering in an aft cockpit or center cockpit configuration.
Mast and Rigging
The mast of the MG 335 is made of aluminum alloy and is deck-stepped on a compression post. The boom is also made of aluminum alloy and has internal reefing lines. The rigging is stainless-steel wire with swaged terminals. The sail area is 535.83 sq ft (49.780 m2) with a mainsail of 307.5 sq ft (28.6 m2) and a 100% foretriangle of 228.3 sq ft (21.2 m2). The sails are controlled by two self-tailing primary winches, two self-tailing halyard winches, and a self-tailing mainsheet winch on the cabin top. The running rigging is mostly led aft to the cockpit through clutches and organizers.
