The Seabreeze 35 was the smallest keel-centerboard boat built by Allied. Rigged as a sloop, yawl, or ketch, the Seabreeze is known for its sailing ability and bluewater potential. With rugged features such as a solid bronze centerboard, Seabreezes are well-suited to ocean-sailing. In 1967, the 380 pound bronze centerboard was replaced with a 115 pound aluminum one. In 1970, The Seabreeze was improved much more significantly. Called the Seabreeze Citiation, the new model featured an improved interior layout with increased storage space and a revised cockpit. The Seabreeze was recognized as one of "Twenty Great Used-Boat Bargains" in the October 1994 issue of Cruising World, as well as "Classic Plastic" in the December 1997 issue. One can be found on the used-boat market from between $35,000 to $48,000. A total of 135 were made.
