Cabo Horn 35 MKII
The Cape Horn 35 is an ocean-proven yacht capable of taking you anywhere in comfort and style. Her unusual interior layout with inside steering is the best way to avoid sunburns, cold rain, or worse still, mixing salt water with cold beer from a treacherous breaker.
When sailing under perfect conditions, the outside steering wheel is there to give all the pleasure a well balanced and responsive sailboat is able to offer. Besides these features, the Cape Horn 35 concept is what we consider the most adequate cruising boat of her size for blue water adventures.
Forward, there is a large private cabin with ample double berth, sofa and a profusion of lockers and drawers. Just aft, to starboard, is placed the heads with shower. Very few boats of this size are so well served with such comfortable heads compartment.
The pilot-house lies behind the mast step. Close to the pilot seat, is placed the navigation station with internal steering, besides a large chart table with plenty of room for installing instruments. On the other side is a well appointed galley, at a privileged place aboard, under the all-windowed pilot-house, a feature seldom offered to the most important crew member, the cook.
The saloon is placed aft, a feature even though not so usual, is exceptionally comfortable, allowing up to eight adults to be entertained or to share sophisticated meals. Abaft the aft side of the U-shaped dinette backrest is placed another double berth. Two opening ports at the transom ensure good air circulation and allow the users to appreciate the view.
The flush deck in front of the pilot house is unobstructed and ample enough to be used as sunbathing area or even for a luau party. The slightly raised cockpit surrounded by a coaming gives a unique feeling of protection to the crew, especially when sailing in bad weather.
A well proportioned sail plan, coupled with a low resistance hull, are the main reasons for the Cape Horn 35 being capable of excellent performances in all points of sailing. The shallow draught bulbous fin-keel ensures good pointing ability enhanced by a high positive stability.
