3500 SCR; 3500 SY
Length w/ Pulpit:
A popular model in the early 2000s, the Maxum 3500 SCR (called the 3500 Sport Yacht in 200308) stood out for her blend of contemporary styling, roomy accommodations, and rugged constructiona durable boat offered at a moderate price compared with more upscale products from Sea Ray, Formula, and Cruisers. Built on a beamy modified-V hull, the absence of side decks allows for a very expansive interior. The floorplan features an offset double berth forward (with privacy curtain) followed by a semicircular lounge to starboard and a full-service galley aft with refrigerator and microwave. Twin single berths in the private midcabin can easily be converted to a double berth. In the cockpit, a U-shaped seating area converts into a sun pad, and visibility from the elevated helm is excellent. A hatch in the bridge deck sole provides good access to the engine space. A transom shower, walk-through windshield, and wet bar were standard. Early models with 310hp MerCruiser V-drive inboards cruise in the low 20s (30 knots top). Later models with 370hp MerCruisers cruise in the mid 20s (35+ knots top).
