The MD35 daysailer is the result of long discussions between some of the most experienced sailors and one-design promoters in world yachting. They identified the need for a competitive one-design yacht upon which the focus is high quality fleet racing placing a premium on experience and tactical awareness. The brief was for a fast, stable design which sails to windward as well as she goes off wind. The design combines classical style and grace with a simple layout for sailing. Mark Mills has created this in the MD35, a yacht with all these characteristics.
The MD35 will appeal to the to the experienced sailor who enjoys close, exacting competition. This stylish, simply conceived yacht can be ready to sail in minutes and is perfect for daysailing with family, friends, or solo. When finished sailing, the MD35 can be picked up by a 2.5 ton club hoist. Lifting the bulb keel makes for a lower trailer position and, once de-rigged can be over the road towed or rolled straight into a standard shipping container for transport most anywhere.
Sailing World magazine awarded the Summit 35 the 2010 Boat of the Year for the best IRC racer.
