Default 35 Des Champs

36' DES CHAMPS CAPE ISLAND DOWNEASTER


I have seen this boat and it is huge for a 35. High freeboard and beam is 16' or so. Think its FG although it looks to be planked. Also, not sure this is really a DE is it? Novi?

Novi boat. Owned by a local yacht club. They destroyed that little yanmar once already. Its an 8knot boat with the yanmar almost on the pin and all that flimsy plywood crap inside her is a joke.

ETA Shes also been for sale for a few years.

Was on the river in Rowayton last summer advertised at 100k. Very strange boat but it is absolutely HUGE. Bizarre but huge.

Somethings not right with the gear and or prop if it's smoking engines. That's a full displacement hull so max speed is probably 8-9 knots. If it's greared & propped right and the engine gets full RPM it's no different then any other boat? AM I missing something thing.

Maybe I'm just "old school" but it seems like a slower turning engine is more appropriate for such slow speeds. It just doesn't seem right turning over 3000 to go 8 knots. I'm sure it would work w/ the right reduction, but to me it just seems retarded. I mean you don't see commercial boats that work at displacement speeds running such high revving power. At least I don't. The power is usually less hp per displacement and turns about half the rpms. And lasts forever.

Because yacht clubs do stupid shit. Have highschool kids run boats and the blow boaters dont have a clue.

Thats vlear from the choice of power and the open end grain of varnished plywood sitting right on the floor.

That engines hrs are most likely all idling
