The ketch-rigged Endurance 35 has the typical hallmarks of
the range: ﬂ ush deck with doghouse, boomed staysail and,
on some boats, a stub bowsprit. The hull is long-keeled and
full-bodied, allowing plenty of internal volume. She has a
wood or glassﬁ bre doghouse, which provides full headroom
in the after part of the saloon but the deckhead is low further
forward. The standard arrangement offered six to seven berths
in three cabins with a good galley and a large navigation area.
She is not particularly close-winded and needs a good
breeze to get going, but handles well and can plough on
through weather that would send ﬂ imsier craft scurrying
for the nearest bolt-hole.
