Vancouver 36

Designed by Tony Taylor (Camper & Nicholson), the Vancouver 36 won the prestigious Silk Cut Nautical Design Award for 1988/89.

Designed from the outset for serious ocean passage making, the Vancouver 36 combines sailing performance with load carrying capability and a comfortable motion in a seaway. Heavy displacement, deep sections and a long encapsulated keel gives excellent directional stability. Cutter rigged for strength and versatility, providing good drive to windward .Easy to reef with optimum amount of sail always available, whatever the weather conditions.

Low coachroof wide and flat, making movement forward very easy, security on deck is heightened by raised bulwarks with teak capping rail. Deep cockpit with high coamings and comfortable angles for leaning against. The helm has easy access to winches, unencumbered movement around the wheel and clear vision to the stemhead.

Below deck 6ft 3ins headroom throughout. Auxillary power Yanmar 47hp diesel engine

Well planned, practical galley, fully gimballed gas cooker and twin sinks. Large dinette area to port. The fore and aft sections serve as good sea berths and the settee to starboard converts to a pilot berth. Full-size chart table, extremely large heads with shower facilities. Well-sited pillars in the galley and chart area.
