Yachting World - April 2007
The Dragonfly 35 is produced in two versions - the Touring and the Ultimate version. The Touring version is perfect for fast and easy cruising, whereas the Ultimate version offers faster fun and exciting sailing.
The cockpit is very spacious and comes standard with wheel steering. The Dragonfly 35 is a performance cruiser with full standing headroom of 1.94 m and accommodates 7 people.
The Dragonfly 35 comes in two versions - the Touring version that is perfect for fast cruising, and, the Ultimate version for those who want extra fun and exiting performance. The Ultimate version is though more challenging and needs earlier reefing. The boat is the same and the difference lies in the size of the rig and sails only.
The cockpit is very spacious, and as standard the Dragonfly 35 comes with wheel steering. Clever detailing ensures all the lines are in easy reach and for the helmsman a GRP aft rail makes life unusually comfortable. All functions are led back to the cockpit for easy handling of the boat.
A 30 Hp inboard diesel engine with saildrive is located in a separate compartment aft, so the boat is still beachable and also dry out without damaging the folding propeller. The high volume floats provide stowage for all extra sails and even folding bikes etec. A unique (optional)feature is the possibility to stow a full size kayack or surfboard with one-piece mast in the back of the float - making the Dragonfly 35 a really fun boat with lots of toys onboard.
The Dragonfly 35 has full standing headroom of 1.94 m and offers sleeping for full 7 people. Starting foward, you will find a full size enclosed V-berth cabin with lockers for clothing and standing space. Moving aft, there is a full-width toilet section with shower and hanging lockers. Numerous small lockers have been fitted throughout the boat, closed at the front with a tidy wooden roll-top system.
The main cabin offers a large, stylish yet functional galley, with double burner stove and oven combined with ample storage lockers, two drawers and integrated coolbox (optional). The big saloon table sits 8 people for dinner. The saloon table offers good visibility like onboard a deck saloon yacht due to the high seating. Back aft in the main cabin, there is quite a large chart table which works well as home office working space as well. To starboard there is a "wet seat" to sit down briefly before taking off your oilies.
The aft cabin - located directly underneath the cockpit - offers a full size double berth of 2 x 1.50 m, and, although under the cockpit floor, it has sufficient headroom to sit up and is comfy as a double berth.
The Classic interior (optional) offers a roomy dinette that seats 8 persons and can easily convert into bunks, when and if needed, and, sleeps 7 persons in total.
To make handling easier, the Dragonfly 35 can also be offered with electrical winches, windlass and bowthruster, as well as many other electronics to make sailing even easier and more fun. Like on our other Dragonfly models, the Swing Wing system allows the floats to hinge inwards to meet the centre hull - reducing the beam of the boat from massive 8.20 m to 3.85 m and improving versatility, marina fees and your popularity with monohulls sailors. The float folds easily via electrical winch within 50 seconds - using no tools.
The Dragonfly 35 is exciting - a fantastic comfort-safety-perfomance yacht, an enjoyable and practical multihull!
