History: Between 1966 and 1977 Bristol Boat Company built a number of traditionally styled boats that were perhaps best exemplified by the classic Bristol 32 and Bristol 40 models. By the middle 1970s there was considerable market pressure to provide modern styling and greater accommodation. In late 1977, Bristol responded with the introduction of the Bristol 29.9 and Bristol 35.5 models. Over the years, through company ups and downs, Bristol offered models ranging from the Bristol 27.7 to the Bristol 65.5, and all generally following the same design concept. The Bristol 35.5 has stood the test of time and is still available as a new boat today, nearly 20 years after it was introduced.
