Chris-Craft 35 Caribbean


One of very few Chris Craft sailboats ever made

This from the drawing board of legendary Sparkman & Stephens, and was designed in 1969 as one of the first motorsailors to be produced in glass

Tai Ping has reputable build quality and pedigree as an offshore cruiser and can make a wonderful modern classic However she is need need of a new owner and one willing to spend some effort in upgrading a few systems and attending to the cosmetics

She is currently afloat and little used this summer, but will be hauled shortly for the winter
