Performance
The 35 Flame's variable deadrise bottom had two steps, flat chines and a modified V-pad. Bolted to the transom were a pair of Bravo XR drives with 1.5:1 gear reduction and Bravo One 15 1/4" x 28" four-blade stainless-steel propellers.
The builder reportedly ran the boat 90 mph, but the best we could coax out of it was 85.2 mph with the engines turning 5,300 rpm. Taller wheels might have produced the 90-mph number, but that likely would have come at the cost of acceleration. And acceleration was the 35 Flame's strong suit. With its Mercury Racing 280S K-Planes down, the boat came on plane in 4.5 seconds and reached 77 mph in 20 seconds. Stronger still in the midrange, it ran from 30 to 50 mph in 4 seconds, 40 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds and 40 to 70 mph in 8.2 seconds.
The 35 Flame required trim-tab input—at the "4" down setting on the mechanical indicators—to stay settled at higher speeds. At speeds less than 45 mph and in all turns, about half the negative tab input was required.. Our lead test driver theorized that the need for constant tab input might have arisen from generous rocker in the hull.
Still, the boat earned strong scores in handling drills, and was particularly snappy in slalom turns from 30 to 50 mph. It provided a fairly smooth ride in rough water and responded appropriately to drive input on the wheel, thanks to hydraulic steering.
Workmanship
In typical Nordic fashion, the 35 Flame exhibited even mold work and shiny in-gelcoat graphics. The boat was laid up with vinylester resin and various layers of fiberglass. To protect the hull from dings and scratches, the builder installed a hefty plastic rub rail with a stainless-steel insert.
Hardware consisted of sleek pieces that complemented the boat's tapering, rounded lines. Two cat-eye navigation lights were flush-mounted on the hull sides, and a pair
of elliptical, powder-painted rails ran down the deck, which was outfitted with two hatches. Six powder-painted cleats, each in molded recesses, were mounted evenly around the boat.
The builder also did a sweet job installing the boat's smoked acrylic windscreen. Though it wasn't particularly effective at knocking down the wind, it did fit together neatly and met evenly with the deck.
A screw jack raised the fiberglass engine hatch, which was mounted to the transom with a continuous stainless-steel hinge. The engines were installed on flat mounts and unfinished L-angles that were through-
bolted to the stringers. Aluminum cushion clamps supported most of the wiring and cables. Overall rigging was acceptable, though not as strong as what we've seen from the builder in the past.
Interior
The layout of the cockpit for the 35 Flame consisted of a large sun pad, a straight-back four-person bench and two bolsters with power dropout bottoms. Stainless-steel rails that tied the bolsters to the gunwales pulled double duty as grab handles for the bench passengers. Enhancing the feeling of security for passengers was the 35-footer's deep cockpit.
When it came to in-cockpit stowage, the only significant space was under the bottom cushion, which opened on a two-position hinge, for the rear bench. Most gear probably will end up in the cabin.
To help folks reach the foredeck when necessary, the builder molded steps in the port side co-pilot's dash. The rocker switch for the observer's power bolster was located in a recess on the port gunwale, as was a grab handle and a cupholder.
At the helm, Livorsi gauges with purple rims and purple bezels were mounted around the steering wheel. Our test drivers found that, when seated, their view of the tachometers was slightly obscured by the wheel. A tilt wheel would improve the driver's view of the instruments. Rocker switches that lit when activated controlled the various accessories, and Mercury Racing throttles and shifters were mounted on a molded extension from the starboard gunwale.
Literally and figuratively, the cabin was the coolest place in the boat. Access to the space was easy thanks to a power door. To port was the molded galley area, which included a top-loading Norcold refrigerator/freezer. Opposite was a head/stowage locker. Both facing lounges in the cabin were sculpted and well padded, and the V-berth was large enough for an adult. The two deck hatches provided exceptional natural light and ventilation. and full-cabin, V-bottoms running better than 85 mph these days, at least on 525-horsepower engines. Without question, the 35 Flame made the most of its power, accelerated smartly and handled well.
