Speaking from experience the Ericson 35 is one of the best sailing boats I have ever sailed. She is a strong performer, comfortable, safe and easily single-handed. QV has been sailed by this owner over the past several years to every port of note, along the northern Gulfcoast. She has been well cared for by all previous owners and it is evident. The young ones have fled the nest and the owner wants to move on to a new adventure.
