The Pretorien 35 is a French built cruiser-racer from the drawing board of the UK firm Holman & Pye that made its introduction in 1979 and has since been quietly attaining cult status. Wauquiez boats were sometimes called French Swans and they are great looking boats with a low-slung wedge deck that flows beautifully into her lines.
The trademarks of this classic include huge stowage, capacious accommodations, and seaworthiness all wrapped up with a build quality that rivals that of some of the finest production boats in the world. All in all, the Pretorian 35 today is an excellent example of a go-anywhere cruiser offering excellent value for the money.
This Pretorien is in very good condition and well equipped with many upgrades including a new engine in 2005, new Harken secondary self-tailing winches, mainsheet traveler, jib tracks and cars, and some new companionway electronic displays that are to be installed shortly. This boat is legendary and will take you as far as you would like to go with style, safety, and sea worthiness.
