The Carolina Classic 35 is a twin-diesel, Carolina-built express fishing boat designed and laid out for serious anglers. A big, open cockpit, full range of fishing gear and upscale interior have made it a popular choice since its introduction 20 years ago. The all-fiberglass modified-vee hull (18-degree transom deadrise), with its distinctive bow flare, provides what the Powerboat Guide calls a “truly outstanding rough-water ride.” Original power is a pair of 480-hp Cummins diesels, for a cruise speed of 25kts and a range of 350nm with fuel tanks holding 410 gallons. A 13.5’ beam and large cockpit for 4-5 anglers is laid out with rigging and bait stations, a sink and icebox, and two in-deck fish boxes. The bridge deck is raised from the cockpit, and the helm is set to starboard, with a pedestal seat. An L-shaped lounge to port provides additional seating. A heavy-duty hardtop, wrap-around glass windshield, and a sturdy tuna tower with a helm station. The layout below has sleeping accommodations for four, with an offset double berth forward and a convertible dinette. The galley has a two-burner stove, under-counter refrigerator and a microwave. The head compartment has a marine head, sink and shower. Cabin fit-and-finish is high quality. The engine room access is amazing as the hydraulic lifted hatch rises higher than any other express of her length. The upper helm deck has a hatch for the engine room for simple engine room checks.
