Summit 35: A Mini Review

Carol Vernon reviews this racer/cruiser for the CW 2010 Sailboat Show

Summit 35 mini 368

Summit Yachts is following its 2009 Sailing World Boat of the Year, the King 40 racer/cruiser, with a smaller offering that is set up for racing yet with accommodations for eight. Aft of the V-berth and enclosed head is a wide open cabin with full length settee, large drop leaf table, galley, chart table and two double bunks aft. Designed to be competitive in IRC, PHRF and class racing, there is a full complement of sail controls. A deep keel fin with long bulb and a deep rudder will give good sailing performance, but will limit cruising in shallow water.
