35' Commander. This has an aft cabin. A rather rare model.

Could be real bad. The hull will probably be fine, it's just everything else.

 35' Salon. If any one is looking for a restoration project of a rare boat. 25 built, '71-'72.

x2.  If the craftsmanship of the rear cabin air conditioning unit installation is carried throughout the entire vessel I would run for the hills :)

I was more referring to its state of neglect. I don't know much about how they built a 35.

One thing I always think of on rare items, there's probably a reason they didn't make many and that's that they probably didn't sell well.

Notice the flair hull forward, Doesn't appear to be a 3 piece hull, umm. If the interior is all 3/4 marine ply and 2x3 mahogany frame work, umm. Might just have to go look and see.

The 35's weren't  3 piece.

Boat ride time on my skiff..... https://video-monitoring.com/beachcams/boyntoninlet/  . I run the inlet 3 x per week

I don't think there have been more than 5 discussions of different boats of this specific model.  The only example of one not a project or approaching that status is featured in a Member Spotlight.

Mike that model may,  1) hull, 2)fwd cabin top 3)aft top ;-)
Maybe even 4 if you count helm top!

  • Okay,  this is essentially free, as is, where is. A 5 to 10 year old classless equivalent is $250 to $325K, what market is your choice? 
  • Were I in this market I would find a location nearby with talent amenable to questions and suggestions on an hourly plan. 
  • I don't believe the 35 is spacious enough to enjoy the engine bilge with limited headroom.   At no initial investment, add 2 to 5 feet in length and find improvements in performance as well as spacial opportunities.
  • Using the labor of the new owner to remove unwanted to the dumpster and possibly salvage some items, there may be engines and transmissions with some value above scrap. 
  • Best guess $30K gets a good marina and 3 feet so it is 38, better nearer 40.
  • $170K a pair of 300+hp engines and gears,  shafts and props ($200,000 total)
  • Instruments and interface $10,000+
  • Make the interior new, choice $20,000 to $50,000
  • $270,000 -$350,000 gives a 2 stateroom classic cruiser,  comfortable for 4 adults,  cruising at 25 knots, consuming 0.9 gpm and tops around 35 knots and 1.7 gpm, AND the hull is still the "maintain course and ignore the Bayliner and Searay."

Problem is finding anywhere that has time available. 

FWIW
