The Voyager 35, a heavy displacement pilothouse cruising boat, was designed by Angus Primrose and built in the UK by Trident Marine.
In addition to this pilothouse ('Voyager') version, Trident Marine also produced a centre-cockpit ('Warrior') version and an aft-cockpit ('Challenger') version, all of which were based on the Primrose-designed 35-foot hull.

1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of just 13.2 suggests that the Voyager 35 will need a stiff breeze to get her going. In light conditions, unless you've got plenty of time on your hands, motor-sailing may be the way to go.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 314 means that the Voyager 35 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 314, tells us the Voyager 35 is clearly a heavy displacement cruising boat. You can load her down with all your cruising gear and equipment and it will hardly affect her waterline. Not an ideal choice for coastal sailing, but she'll come into her own on an offshore passage in testing conditions.
4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 30.1 suggests that crew comfort of a Voyager 35 in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of a moderate bluewater cruising boat - a predictable and acceptable motion for most seasoned sailors.
5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 1.8 indicates that a Voyager 35 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
