A rugged moderate displacement cruiser, the well known Wauquiez Pretorien is among the most respected designs in her class.  Pretoriens have proven themselves on the oceans of the world. ALCHEMY, with her fastidious maintenance and amazing list of recent upgrades, must be regarded as one of the finest Pretoriens afloat.  The previous owner runs the service dept at one of the top boatyards in Annapolis

The Pretorien 35 is a go-anywhere performance cruiser -built in France by legendary boat builder Henri Wauquiez. The Wauquiez company is known for producing some of the strongest and most capable offshore yachts ever built; that look as great as they sail. ALCHEMY’s medium-displacement solid FRP hull achieves high strength through a massive internal stringer system and a uniquely strong bulkhead-to-hull/deck fiberglass joint. The very high-aspect ratio sail plan drives this boat easily in light winds; while the very high ballast-to-displacement ratio of 46% (lead ballast located at the bottom of a deep sump) generates a very high righting moment, allowing her to comfortably power upwind in 40+ knots of true breeze (with sails appropriately reefed). The deep full-skeg rudder assures maximum control and security.

Multiple circumnavigator and BOC competitor Hal Roth chose the Pretorien as his cruising boat for his third time around -and was quite happy with his choice for comfort and functionality. The design has drawn rave reviews from many other authorities -including Practical Sailor and Cruising World.  There is not a more capable, good looking, performance cruiser in this price range. Don't miss the opportunity to own a true quality performance cruiser.

  • Fixed keel (cast lead, bolted on)
  • Skeg-hung rudder 
  • Bottom paint ('13); Epoxy barrier coat 
  • Longitudinal and athwartship stringers -for additional hull strength and rigidity.
