The ARAGOSA is of the same family of radius bilge aluminum hulled yachts designed for cruising comfort and performance. The hull shape closely resembles a round bilge hull but is much simpler to build. Construction is solid with closely spaced longitudinal stringers on widely spaced athwartship frames, forming a strong grid to resist collisions or grounding.
The accommodations of the ARAGOSA offer ample room for the cruising family or for a couple with guests. Storage is generous and the necessities, such as a roomy head, a wet locker and a good navigation area, have not been forgotten. The spacious U shaped galley features a deep double sink, large ice box (or refrigerator) and ample stowage for dishes and supplies. A fixed, dropleaf cabin table has good seating for the crew and additional storage for cutlery, condiments, etc.
The deep cockpit gives good protection to the crew in adverse weather and wide side decks offer a safe working platform for sail changes. Her tall sloop rig with inside chainplates provides drive for the long waterline hull. Below water, the NACA fin with end plates assures good windward ability, while generous beam, firm bilges and a solid ballast ratio supply the necessary stability so she can stand up to a good breeze.
All in all, the yachtsman looking for a good performing aluminum auxiliary cruiser would do well to consider the Aragosa 35.
