The Impala 35 is a pretty Sparkman & Stephens design. With her long fin keel and substantial skeg hung rudder, this is a typical S&S sea kindly design built to their exacting standards. The owner reports that she is a well balanced craft with impeccable manners and great performance. Although recently re-engined, there is more upgrading to be done, not unusual in boats of this vintage, and the attractive asking price reflects this. Excellent value for money and well worth viewing.
