Gary Mull design, carbon fiber undstayed rig, big roach full batten main and self tending jib. Large interior for a 36 footer. Two private sleeping cabins. Have made multiple offshore passages up and down east coast from Chesapeake to Key West. Strong, stiff and very fast sailboat. Large elliptical rudder makes her go where she's pointed. I have owned the boat for over three years and put 4,500 miles under her keel. No weaknesses discovered yet. Perfect for short handed sailing. As far as I'm concerned, she's perfect for anywhere you want to take her.

Fabulous sailing and cruising boat. We have had "Liberty", our 1986 F-36 sloop, for four years, and sailed her extensively in Puget Sound, the San Juans and Gulf Islands, and through BC's Strait of Georgia to Princess Louisa Inlet, before shipping her cross-country to Chesapeake Bay, where we have been sailing from March to December each year. The F-36 is very fast (we've seen 10 knots in the Straits of Juan de Fuca), stiff, stable, easy to single-hand when necessary, and highly livable. The interior volume of the boat is tremendous, with lots of storage space under/behind seats and bunks. Our boat has the shoal draft keel, perfect for the Chesapeake Bay and Bahamas, where we'll sail her next year for a long vacation. We've upgraded her electronics with integrated radar, GPS, and chartplotter. The best thing about the freestanding carbon fiber mast is never having to worry about shrouds and stays, and with all lines led aft, you never have to leave the cockpit. And no genoa sheets-just one sheet for the self-tending jib! We love this boat!
