Typhoon is a 2001 1D35 now listed exclusively for sale with YOTI Sydney Harbour.
Designed by Nelson & Marek and built by Carroll Marine in the USA, Typhoon was the very last of 48 1D35’s built – hence the sail number 35048.
Considered somewhat unconventional for their time with a huge mainsail, small non-overlapping jib, no backstay, hydraulic forestay adjustment and a displacement of 2,971kg, the 1D35 inspired a whole new audience and a whole new tuning challenge.
Designed for power, speed and seaworthiness, these yachts were soon challenging some much bigger rivals with target speeds of 7knots plus upwind and the ability to surf at 18knots plus off the breeze.
She has recorded a solid list of successes in both one design and mixed class racing in both Australia and the USA. She won the 2004 1D35 Class Championship in USA and finished 1st in division in 2003 Transpac. In Australia she won the Pittwater Coffs race and the Coffs Harbour Offshore Series and the annual RPAYC blue water point score for 4 consecutive years
On deck she has a large easily worked racing cockpit with a highly ratioed traveller system to allow the helmsman to steer and play the traveller, ensuring that as much crew weight as possible is kept on the rail.
Her sail wardrobe is extensive and includes a Norths flat top main (2019), Norths J1 (2019), Ian Short J2 and J3 both new in 2023 along with Norths J4, S1, S2 and S3 spinnakers and an array of delivery sails.
There is a Raymarine GPS/plotter, New B&G Triton wind, speed and depth instruments and all new Dyneema running rigging was fitted in 2022.
Typhoon is in current CAT 7 safety.
