I am very pleased with the layout and the sailing performance of this boat. My partner and I bought it about four years ago and completely overhauled the mechanical systems and refinished the internal woodwork. It is amazing how well the boat was manufactured. She does have some drawbacks: shallow anchor locker, small (16 gal) fuel capacity, but they are minor when compared to her numerous features. The boat sails well, and can take fairly heavy winds and seas.

Pros:
Cons:

This design '72-'75 has an excellent reputation as a stiff cruiser/racer. Excellent accommodations includes pilot berths for offshore sailing. The P36 is very competitive in PHRF racing. Cockpit design allows for easy single handed sailing or with small crew. The P-36 has a structural weakness around the mast step area that appears as the boat ages or is discovered after a grounding. It requires additional glasswork to beef up the area. Backstay tension can also cause extreme hull bending and structural damage in this area. If remedied properly this is an extremely capable boat. Handling characteristics are tremendous. Early boats with Atomic 4's and Mini diesels are underpowered. Recommend repower with more HP.
