General Details

(LOCATION: Port Charlotte FL) The Kenner 35 Ketch has classic style and spacious accommodations. A rare vessel to begin with, number 32 of 38 built, she has been painstakingly reconstructed to be one of a kind. Many years of hard work started with stripping her down to bare hull and hand-fabricating her many parts. The custom craftsmanship of a professional cabinet maker combined beautiful woodworking with durable structural design. Forces beyond the owner's control prevent the completion of this project. This is your chance to own a spectacular sailing yacht with hand-crafted detail at an affordable price.

On deck we have a large cockpit with teak rail, Greystone non-skid deck designed to simulate teak planking, ship's wheel, and pedestal with compass. The hatches are all custom teak with cherry undersides that match the interior. All hardware is brass that has been clear coated or painted with Awlgrip. Solid brass dolphins adorn the aft taft rail. The handcrafted boom gallows has built-in lighting. The bow features a 13' custom teak bow sprit with stainless steel rollers and teak walkways. Ground gear includes CQR and Bruce anchors with Lofrans windlass.

The interior woodwork is cherry with curly cherry details, and cherry & ash sole. Forward is a v-berth with arch entrance with built-in stained glass light fixtures. The arch is laminated and serves as a compression mast support. It is the combination of strength and beauty the requires skill and design. The salon is open port side galley, starboard settee with pull-out berth. The galley is equipped with a Force 10 range with oven, hand-made cabinets, Corian counter top, stainless steel double sinks, and top loading Alder Barbour refrigeration. There is a large storage area with built-in Force 10 BBQ. Aft is a separate engine room. The interior is designed to utilize every inch for living area or storage. Access panels provide easy maintenance.

This nearly-completed project is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a custom hand-crafted sailing yacht. She has a polyurethane lined hull, custom centerboard, West system barrier coat, custom interior, and new Yanmar 38-hp diesel engine with only 4 hours of use. Call now to schedule a showing of this wonderful Kenner 35.
