Boat Highlights

The Witness 35 cruising cruising catamaran is designed and constructed to provide the owner with the sailing performance and accommodation of most sailing yachts in the 40 to 42 ft. size range along with benefits of easy handling and excellent economical performance under power that one would expect of a 35 footer. Because she is a catamaran, the crew and guests will be delighted with the almost complete absence of continuous heeling while under sail and rolling while at anchor.

Designed for safety and practicality, this yacht was equipped for living aboard for long periods of time. Its performance, handling, and comfort under sail or power is outstanding. Materials and equipment have been selected to provide the optimum performance. Homewind  is inquestionably one of the best yachting buys available.

Layout & Accommodations

The interior accommodation is designed to provide long term comfort for a party of six in two double staterooms, one single stateroom, and the navigator's berth. All bunks are extra long. 6'8" being the shortest. The double staterooms fed have almost standard width (4'4") double bunks. Numerous hanging lockers, shelves, drawers and bins are provided for the storage of personal gear. A locker for wet clothing with convenient access from the cockpit is also provided.

Teak and teak veneered plywood are used for cabinets, doors, and trim. Highest quality laminates are used on all counter tops. Bulkheads are painted, covered with vinyl. The cabin sole in the dinette, galley, and navigation area is covered with a teak overlay. The head floor is fiberglass and has a sump with teak grate to catch shower water. The stateroom soles and exposed portions of the hulls are covered with high quality short loop pile carpet.

The large head compartment is equippd with a manually operated toilet and holding tank with a hand pump for discharge in the event that pumpout facilities are not required. The vanity wash basin and shower are connected to seperate foot operated pumps. Shelves and cabinets provide plenty of storage for toilet articles and towels.


The galley boasts of twelve linear feet of counter including a 3-burner LPG stove with oven, a large ice box which is optionally convertible to refrigeration, and two sinks. Foot pumps for fresh water and sea water are standard. Service for eight including dishes, glassware, and stainless flatware is furnished in specifically designed lockers and racks. A wine bottle locker is conveniently located near the ice box and sinks.

Electrical & Power

12volt electrical system is powered by two marine batteries through a selector switch and main circuit breaker. A breaker panel with eight wired circuits and room for four additional circuits control the system. Each auxillary engine is equipped with a 35 ampere altnernator for battery charging. Running lights for both saling and motoring, a foredeck light and an anchor lighta re individually switched at the helmsman's station. The 110volt AC electrical system with 25 ampere battery charger and six outlets at convenient locations throughout the boat are included. Inside the cabin ther eare seven fluorescent fixtures. Incandescent reading lamps are installed in each stateroom and at the dinette. The dinette also has a whote or red domelight situated over the table. In addition to the fluorescent fixture over the chart table, there is a special navigator's white or red lamp on a flexible mounting.

Electronics & Navigation

The navigator's station consists of a 27" x 54" chart table which lifts up to provide access to flat storage for as many as 100 charts along with shelves, bins, and lockers ample for navigation and radio gear. A convenient bunk is fitted in this area.

Engine & Mechanical

An auxiliary engine is installed in each hull. The standard engines are single cylinder, 10 Hp Bukh diesels with sail drives and Gori folding propellers (DV 10 SME). The Volvo 7.5 Hp or 13 Hp engines with sail drives are optionally available.


Tankage for 150 gallons of drinking water is fitted midships. 50 gallons in each hull. Valves at each tank and a valve in the water line running between the hulls provide a complete choice of which water tank is being drawn on from either side of the boat. A 12 gallon fuel tank is fitted near each engine providing each with enough fuel for about 48 hours of continuous running at a modest throttle setting.

Deck & Equipment

The hull and deck are constructed of fiberglass reinforced polyester stiffened where required with balsa core and internal foam sandwich stringers. They are strongly bolted and bonded together. Bulkheads are fiberglass bonded to the hull and deck to provide extra strength and stiffness to the boat. The main structural bulkhead where the mast is stepped and shroud chainplates are bolted consists of one and three quarter inch timber sandwiched between two layers of one half inch plywood. The sail lockers inder the foredecks and the engine and steerage compartments aft are capable of being sealed off to provide water tight compartments. The large forward windows are three-eights inch thick plexiglass bonded and bolted directly to the cabin front.

Sails & Rigging

The sail plan is typical of most yachts in the mid 30ft. range. A sloop rig with a 40ft. mast. Mian sail is 262 sq.ft. and a fore traingle of 30 sq.ft. give a nominal sail area of 562 sq.ft. he mast, rigging, and working sails are designed to withstand the heavy stresses imposed when a boat sails with practically no heel. The halyards are led to the helmsman's position where halyard winches are mounted. The jib sheet tracks installed on the cabin top are long enough to acommodate a large range of headsail sizes. Appropriate turning blocks and large two-speed jib sheet winches are included as standard. A ball bearing mainsheet traveler with control lines is installed as standard equipment on the aft cockpit coaming. A four part mainsheet is standard.


The helmsman's station is designed to have the best possible access to all sailing and powering controls. The wheel steering provides smooth and positive control of both rudders: a five-inch compass is mounted at the wheel. Halyards are close by and all sheets and halyards are provided with cleats or stops llocated so that the helmsman can conveniently release them in the event of an unexpected gust. Complete engine controls including stiches, cold start, and kill devices as well as combined throttle-shift levers are located at the helmsman's right hand. Tachometers and a fuel gage are included as standard.
