FOR SALE: The Perfect Double or Single Handed Race Boat

NEW ASKING PRICE $ 89,000   Owner is ready to SELL! 

"Relentless", the 2009 Transpac Division 6 class winner (competing double handed) has been painstakingly optimized for short handed and Cat 1 offshore sailing.  The boat has been stored on it's trailer since August of '09, and looking for a new owner that sees her potential and value for the asking price.  No expense was spared to make this the most competitive 35 footer on the west coast!

Those expenses include '09 North Sails 3DL square top main, 3DL #1 jib, Code 0, A1, A2, A3, A4 kites and spinnaker stay sail.  The original 1D factory deck layout was simplified, and engine controls were extended to the cockpit for use by the helmsman.  All standing rod and running rigging were replaced, as well as new Harken ST primary winches added.  A 30" "pig snout" prod designed by Bruce Nelson and built by Fitzgerald Racing was added.  Two carbon spinnakers poles were built 2.5' longer than the standard 1D class poles, along with a custom carbon "saddle" inboard end pole attachment at the gooseneck level.  An aluminum reaching strut was added.  Spinnaker luff lengths were extended with custom halyard exits and stainless chafe guards.  A custom offshore "wide yoke" tiller was built making it more comfortable to steer for long periods.  The boat is equipped with a Simrad tiller pilot, a custom racing dodger, and a starboard side pipe berth below.  All on-board electronics, distribution panel and ships wiring were updated or replaced including VHF, SSB, GPS plotter,  CD/stereo and LED interior lighting as well as a solar panel for battery charging.  Aside the boats upgraded racing elements, Relentless was painted inside and outside, including the mast and boom, using Algrip paint.  The bottom was faired and painted with Sea Hawk anti fouling paint.  Stanchion bases were sleeved thru deck to minimize possible leaks.  All thru deck fasteners were G10 fiberglass sleeved to eliminate both water in the foam core and deck compression.  New Sumbrella black covers were added.  The Triad trailer was strengthened, sandblasted and painted and looks great!  Oh' yeah a new bronze head was installed below, and a 20 gallon water bladder was added.  The owner though is most proud of the woodwork that was added or reworked below......go figure.

If you are looking for a proven, turn key offshore racer then look no further than the highly customized 1D35 "Relentless."
