Can anyone tell me about the Five Island 35' hull? The ad says it's based upon a Bruno Stillman low profile design. How does it compare to the Duffy 35?
Thanks for your help in advance.

35 five islands
the 35 five islands is the same hull as a Bruno 35. they acquired one of the old Bruno molds after Bruno went out of business....I have one and absolutely love the boat. as far as comparable to a 35 duffy high shear they are very similar. I think the Bruno rides a little better in crappy weather and in a following sea. than the duffy but all in all they are comparable. when I was buying mine I was looking for either a 35 duffy or 35 five islands. the duffys were all in the 90k price range at the time so I found a five islands project and redid the whole thing....mines also the one for sale in the classifieds on here...im just looking to upgrade to a bigger boat if someone buys mine...if not i'll keep it and just use it...I love the boat!
