35' Spencer 35

WU WEI is the former BLACK HAWK that was well known in both racing and cruising circuits in the Pacific Northwest. She was cruised to Alaska where she was heavily upgraded by an owner who loved her dearly. Her current owner was preparing her for a circumnavigation when he fell in love with a larger cruising yacht. She has new Standing Rigging, mostly new running rigging, a brand new Pineapple Genoa, a newer Lofrans Windlass with foot pedal switches, a Reconditioned Engine, new Lifeline Batteries, and most systems have been serviced and or upgraded. She is ready to enjoy immediately.

The Spencer 35 is a semi-custom bluewater cruiser designed by John Brandlmayr. Many of them have made offshore passages, including the well known WHISPER owned by noted author Hal Roth. There were 64 hulls produced in Canada by Spencer Boats Ltd during a production run that lasted more than twenty years.

Spencer Boats began production of moulded fibreglass sailboats in 1958 with the Spencer 28. The yard was located on Canada’s west coast, in the town of Richmond, British Columbia. Eventually, the line of sailboats grew to include numerous models up to 53 feet in length. The most popular was the Spencer 35, introduced in 1962.

The popularity of the Spencer 35 was no doubt helped by several books written by Hal Roth. These books, classics of early cruising literature, described the adventures of Hal and Margaret Roth aboard their Spencer 35 WHISPER, which was built for the Roths in 1966.
