She is joy to sail and perfect for ORC and IRC racing. The sport yacht for sale was completely overhauled in 2017 in the Netherlands.


Design Notes

The Summit 35 is designed to excel under IRC by combining the stability and power of a large sailplan and deep bulb keel with the low drag hullshape that permits strong all-around performance. This allows sparkling light airs performance in conjunction with the optional retracting sprit, as well as offering enough stability to excel in a breeze. The Summit 35 builds on the Mills Design pattern of ergonomic dual-purpose deck layouts with race-friendly systems to ensure that both racing crew and family friends can enjoy leisure and competition on the Summit 35. Below the open and comfortable interior boasts three double berths, standing headroom, and a spacious galley.


Mills yacht design

Designer Mark Mills is The Man nowadays when it comes to successful mid-sized IRC designs. Especially in Europe, the cradle of IRC racing. The 2009 Boat of the Year, the King 40 by Summit Yachts (also a Mills design), lived up to the hype in its first year.


"The cruising amenities are there to meet the IRC rule and  a good stay on board." The Summit 35 is also great, for around-the-cans-racing, there are a lot of features experienced teams will appreciate. "The boat has a good deck layout," and smart solutions , "with details like the jib in-haulers led to the companionway, the mainsheet led below decks, and the smoodesignth, rounded forward hatch [for snag-free spinnaker takedowns]. This boat is responsive in light air and is nicely laid out for fast sailing.The designer and builder really have their act together on this one."
