Columbia 36 brochure on line
Since I own hull #33 ( a 1968) I can recommend that you access the Columbia owner's website Columbia Yacht Owners Association and if you go to the Model specification page, you'll find a 1969-70 full color brochure showing the original ( albeit Autumn yellow) interior.

Thanks for the reply on columbia 36 interior pics
Thank you Old Columbia and Faster. I have been to both of these. The columbia in NY is not the one I am restoring but it is the same layout. Thanks again for your time.

Columbia 36 Interiors
Hi Sailwench,

I am restoring a '69 C 36 as well, and I have picked up a number of photos from all over the web for ideas, etc. I have them in a file, Let's see if I can post them here; no dice- File upload failed- sorry to other users, but I should be able to email them if you like. I am planning the remodel for this winter. Good luck!

Columbia 36
I am also refitting a columbia 36 -- I havent figured out how to post photos but I am planing on starting a blog to document my progress. I have awlgripped the hull and done a bottom job, re-powered with a 48 volt electric motor, replaced the standing rigging, rewired 12 volt and shore power, added air conditioning and hot water, replaced all the port lights as well as lexan for the large windows, replaced all the fixtures in the head and galley, and I must say the columbia 36 is one well built boat. She is a very comfortable little liveaboard and I am looking forward to putting many miles on her.

Good for you!
Nice to hear you are trying a 48 volt drive system. I would be interested to see how it goes. Good luck with your refit! My first step is to remove all the deck hardware and seal that up before I progress below. Cheers!

Passage making in a C36?
I'm looking at one today and would like opinions about this boat as an ocean voyager. IE construction, sea worthiness in all every condition, etc. Also, would you fellows say there is anything to be wary of or known weaknesses that might be costly or lead to dangerous conditions?


OldColumbia 06-29-2010 02:14 PM

Hi Oakland,
You must acknowledge that the "youngest" of the Columbia 36's are over 35 years old. Therefore the overall sea worthiness of any of them depends on how they've been maintained. There's not much on mine that hasn't been replaced, repaired or painted. Some things more than once.
The Crealock design is very sea kindly in open water and many of them have been solid passage makers when properly equipped. They were, however, designed primarily as a coastal cruiser/ CCA racer ( PHRF 156).
The Large coach roof ports tend to "craze" with age and sun exposure. I've replaced all the ports with opening ports for ventilation. Some folks switch to mid boom sheeting on the main to open up access in the aft cockpit.
There's no getting around the basic value of a solid hull 36' boat albeit with 60's and 70's technology for the prices at which they can be had.
Expect however to invest in refrigeration, diesel repower, standing and running rigging, painting topsides and hull, re upholstery and canvas.
If your base boat is less than 20K, with some sweat equity you can have a sound vessel that, properly fitted and crewed can go anywhere.
