Ericson 35-3


New Member
Ahoy! I am looking at a 1985 Ericson 35-3 for club racing and cruising. Really like this boat and its many upgrades, but I'm finding different stats about the headroom (between 6'1 and 6'3). Does anyone know the actual headroom? I'm 6'2, so I'm hoping it's 6'2 or more.

Here's the link if you want to take a look. Would love any comments or feedback. I will look at her on the hard soon.

I have been aboard an Ericson 34-2 (same hull with a different interior layout) and I recall having more headroom than in my Olson. Ours is 6'2", and so am I.
In our Olson, there is enough headroom for me to walk around barely touching. It works fine, and helps that EY put in a vinyl headliner with a quarter inch of soft foam above it. Let us know how the inspection goes.
Good Luck!

I just measured 6'2" at the battens where the headliner is stapled on my 35-3. It sags an inch between the battens.
