Length w/ Pulpit:
Enjoying only a brief two-year production run, the Alura 35 is an inexpensive open sportfishing boat with a roomy cockpit and comfortable cruising accommodations. She rides on a conventional modified-V hull with a wide beam and a shallow keel for increased directional stability. In her day, the Alura was considered a lot of boat for the money. Theres lots of fishing room in her spacious cockpit, and the midcabin interior sleeps four with a fair degree of privacy. The galley is complete with an electric/alcohol stove, pressure hot and cold water, Corian counters and refrigerator, and the enclosed head includes a sink and shower. A teak-and-holly cabin sole adds a touch of luxury, and cabin headroom is about 6 feet, 4 inches. The 35s large bi-level cockpit is deep and well suited to the demands of anglers as well as weekend cruisers. A small tackle center is behind the helm seat, a swim platform was standard, and foredeck access is easy thanks to the wide side decks. On the downside, theres no transom door, and fit and finish is less than impressive. Twin 270hp Crusader gas engines cruise the Alura 35 at around 17 knots with a top speed of 2526 knots.
