A Very Clean & Well-Maintained Shoal Draft/Centerboard Sloop!!

The Bristol 35.5 is a remarkable yacht. Her lines are stunning, her sailing performance exemplary, construction excellent, and interior spacious and attractive. Well-kept Bristol 35.5's have always been in demand and will continue to be.

This particular 1978 Bristol 35.5, "Talisman", is a wonderful example of a well-maintained and loved vessel. She has many notable upgrades. Her 39hp Yanmar diesel engine, installed in 2003, with approx. 1386 hours and all new canvas in 2021 are just a couple examples.

Most importantly, "Talisman" is a shoal draft model with a centerboard, providing a 3' 9" draft with the board up, which allows access to anchorages that would normally be unavailable to boats of this size.
