Designer Gerry Douglas, wanted a lot of internal volume when he designed the C350 so he gave the hull plenty of beam, just under 4m of it (13ft) and a lot of headroom (2m in the saloon, only slightly less even in the fore cabin). Then he added a list of standard equipment includes even an electric anchor winch. In the fore cabin he opted for a centre line double berth with innerspring mattress and cutouts at the sides for individual entry and exit.
The bathroom is en suite with is a separate door off the saloon for day use and features a separate shower recess with folding glass door. The toilet is electric, with macerator and holding tank. The aft cabin, on the portside, features a huge athwartships berth which has an opening hatch. All sail handling can be done from the cockpit. There is a seat in each corner of the push pit, and a foot brace is part of the cockpit table structure so if you are sitting on the windward cockpit seat you can brace yourself easily. There are lockers in the transom The below decks layout frees up room under the starboard cockpit seat for a deep lazarette with a step. There is room for an inflatable dinghy.
Inboard shroud anchorages mean the side decks are easy to traverse and handrails are superb. There are two sets of spreaders; the intermediate diagonals are continuous and extend to the deck where they can be adjusted. There are fore and aft lowers; all chain plates are set well inboard so when you go forward you walk outside them. Chainplate loads are fed by metal rods into the lower part of the hull structure proper.
This 2004 model C350 is a good example of this popular cruising boat, with many extras. The yacht was fully re-rigged in September 2015 including new furler drum bearing. Binnacle -mounted Raymarine HybridTouch plotter, Linear drive autopilot, dingy davits etc. This boat is ready to go cruising.
