Improve-it = Carolina Classic 35

Carolina Classic has been very quiet in recent years in presenting new models, so when this small volume high quality US builder recently launched its 35 feet flagship with some improvements it was fair to give them some space on PowerYachtBlog.  This latest Carolina Classic 35 was recently launched with a new hard top design more extended then to the original.  This just launched 35 is powered by twin Cummins 550hp giving a nice cruise of 31 knots, and the solid ride this US builder is associated with.  The Carolina Classic 35 is the flagship of a four model line up of well build sportfish cruisers which start at 25 feet.  The 35 features a two plus two interior layout with a forward berth, L-shaped saloon, galley, and separate head.  The cockpit features a free aft deck space, with two step higher area offering a large L-shaped lounger, and the helm station to starboard. Her hull is a full solid fiberglass build something rare these days, and the V-shape keel with fine sharp entry closes at eighteen degrees aft.
