Broker's Comments

After the success of David Thomas's Bolero 25, he was persuaded to design a larger version. Sharing many of the virtues of the Sigma 36, the resultant design became known as the 'Big Bolero 35.5', and won over more fans with its spirited performance. The observations of her current owner best describe her strengths: "I have had the pleasure of owning her for fifteen years. We have raced her and cruised and have never been disappointed. Whether fully crewed or just two up, she sails quickly with a minimum of fuss and delivers you safely to port. Under engine she handles with precision, without prop walk and will go straight astern. She has plenty of room down below for fully crewed trips, with good sized berths and stowage. She''s been a great boat to sail and own."
