- Cruising Yachts 35' to 40'
Popular Cruising Yachts from 35 to 40 Feet Long Overall
Their Physical Properties & Key Performance Indicators
Welcome to this ever-growing gallery of some of the most popular cruising yachts between 35 and 40 feet (10.7m to 12.2m) long overall.
Medium sized cruising yachts like these are often the sailboat of choice for short-handed crews, and if properly equipped and maintained, will take long offshore voyages in their stride.
Sailboats at the top of this size range, those above 12m long overall, will find that they are charged considerably more in marinas than those that fall just under 12m LOA. Something worth bearing in mind perhaps?
Undeniably, with her gentle sheer, clipper bow and 'moustache' nameplate, the Mariner 40 ketch is a very attractive cruising yacht. Her long keel and very heavy displacement suggest she'll be a steady, comfortable performer in a seaway but passage times will suffer as a result.
Many thanks to the owner of 'Kiwa' for this pic of his Cavalier 39 cruising yacht.

Reefed down, 'Transcendence' - a Cascade 36 sloop - is making good progress into a short chop. Many thanks to owner Michael McLaughlin for the pic.
Thank you, Han van der Stap, for submitting this pic of your stunning yacht 'SysterSol'. As you say, she is "a beautiful Swedish boat, sure and fast, for long distance cruising."
Allied Princess 36
Many thanks to David Humphreys for submitting this great pic of 'Gabriel', his ketch-rigged Allied Princess 36 Mk2. The Mk2 version was introduced in 1980, unlike its predecessor, sporting a bowsprit. Both versions were available as either ketch or cutter rigs.
David tells us that 'Gabriel' (hull #130) has been well maintained and up-graded since her commissioning in 1980. She's based in Annapolis MD and spends her days sailing to local destinations with a few over-nighters.
