Designed by Stephen Jones and built by Bowman Yachts in 1999.
Hull No 91 - British SSR Registered. VAT paid.
Deep fin keel version of the much admired Starlight 35 aft cockpit, 7/8 berth cruiser/racer. “Tsunami” has clearly been set up for comfortable fast cruising by knowledgeable owners and regularly upgraded during their ownership with recent standing rigging, mainsail, Yankee, decks re-caulked, Plotter, AIS, VHF, holding tank. A well equipped example in good condition.
“Tsunami” has excellent performance: she is close winded and accelerates rapidly to give good speeds. Stephen Jones’s well engineered design gives her exceptional strength and stability suitable for ocean crossings. The Rival Bowman build is considered to be much superior in quality to that of the earlier Sadler boats. “Tsunami’s” exterior good looks combine with a comfortable and attractive layout below deck with well thought out storage. She has wide side decks and the cockpit is comfortable with all controls to hand.
We have cruised extensively in our 5 year ownership: to Brittany, Stockholm and the Aaland Islands, south Norway and to the Shetlands and Orkneys this year.
