MAGIC HAPPENS loves open water sailing. She likes heavy air, she likes light air and she likes to sit on top of the water, a very well balanced sailing yacht. The yacht is in very clean condition and is exercised regularly. Her 5’2” draft and 52’ air height make her a great island as well as intracoastal boat. The bright work interior and exterior sparkles. MAGIC HAPPENS is a very fast sailing yacht and makes a great cruising home.  MAGIC HAPPENS is miserly in her fuel consumption, her modern sails inspires getting them up early, the LED lighting is easy on the batteries. It is understood that this was the last Ericson 35 MK III and was built by Pacific Seacraft making her an even higher pedigreed yacht. The yacht has been lavished with attention by an experienced owner and is seriously for sale.


The interior is high gloss varnished teak in excellent condition.  Teak and & Holly cabin sole, ladder and companion way stripped and varnished 2015.   New upholstered cushions 2012/Updated 2015.

The forward cabin has a large comfortable V-Berth and filler to make a large double bed with shelves port and starboard.  There is an overhead hatch and three opening ports, a hanging locker and storage cabinet to starboard, opposite aft is the large head to port.

The Ericson 35 has privacy rarely found even on custom luxury yachts in this size range.  In the head, there is a separate shower stall with hot and cold running water, teak sauna seat, shower curtain, separate sump, and enough room to make you feel you're at home.

The main salon has a U shaped settee to port with a pedestal mounted table that converts to a double berth. The settee to starboard is large enough for sleeping. There is ample storage outboard of and under the settee and on the shelves and cabinets above the settees.

The navigation station is on the port side aft and includes a large chart table, drawers and cabinets, with electrical control panel.  Aft of the Navigation station is a large double quarter berth with 3 opening ports for light and ventilation.  The galley is aft to starboard.  



The U-shaped galley to starboard aft has hot and cold pressure water run to a 10" deep stainless steel sink with fresh and salt water foot pumps.  Aft there is an insulated 6 1/2 cubic foot ice box with 12v Sea Frost refrigeration, and a second insulated 2 1/2 cubic foot ice box forward.  A gimballed, Force 10 three burner propane stove with oven, broiler, safety rail and removable countertop makes preparing meal safe and comfortable.

Deck & Hull

The keel draft was 6' 6''. In 2006, the previous owner went back to the original naval architect, Bruce King. Mars Metals in Ontario fabricated the new bulb to King's specifications, and Johanson Boatworks in Rockland, Maine installed it. The draft has been reduced to 5' 2''. The sailing performance is still fantastic. Hidden from sight is the structural technology that makes every Ericson, as Bruce King says, "frankly, overbuilt." The Triaxial force grid distributes mast induced loads through a network of hollow floor beams, significantly improving the hull's stiffness and strength to weight ratio. It also reduces engine vibration and adds great pivotal resistance to the keel. Outboard 5HP LEHR propane power 0 hours, new Dec 2014 never used, no dingy.
