Strike 35 Express

The Strike 26 was a true diesel pocket fisherman with a cult following, and the new Strike 35 is a fine midrange express entry into the Strike Yachts line of factory-direct boats. A pair of optional 370 hp engines reportedly delivers a 33-knot cruise and a 38-knot top end. The 35 has a sharp entry, and deadrise at the transom is 23 degrees. Her 90-square-foot cockpit houses three fishboxes with a macerator and a live well. Raw- and freshwater washdowns are standard, as is a leaning post with removable backrest. Because Strike is a custom yard, all boats are built to order, and there is an extensive options list. She is available as an open boat or as a cuddy cabin with V-berth and head. Full or half-towers are available, and electronics box and outrigger packages are numerous.

Optional saddle fuel tanks boost capacity by 44 gallons, and a 4kW genset should keep the piña coladas coming
