This 1987 Marine Trader 36 is powered by twin Volvo TMD30A Diesel engines.
Always used in the Great Lakes - Stored in the water during the Summer months and, on the hard and professionally winterized each season.
The Marine Trader 36 Sundeck -- trawler-style design whose principal appeal resides in her modern sundeck
profile, full teak interior, and a low price.
Like most Asian trawlers of her era, the 36 rides on a solid fiberglass hull with hard aft
chines, a well-flared bow, and a long, prop-protecting keel. Below, her two-stateroom interior is arranged with the galley and dinette down a few steps from the salon. The forward stateroom is fitted with a space-saving offset double berth, while the master stateroom features a walkaround double as well as a tub/shower in the
head. With the galley and dinette down, the main salon is quite open and includes a sliding deck access door at the helm. Outside, there's space on the full-width sundeck for a few chairs, and seating
for five is provided on the flybridge. Additional features include a radar arch, teak swim platform, bow pulpit, reasonably wide side decks, and an aft-deck wet bar.
The 36 was imported by Marine Trading International of Toms River, NJ, is built by CHB Marine in Taiwan and was introduced in 1974. The model remained in production 27 years after her introduction and is unquestionably the most popular trawler-styled yacht of this size ever sold in the U.S.
Marine Trader 36 hulls are built of a solid composite which consists primarily of chopped-strand fiberglass mat and resin. Longitudinal support is provided by wood stringers and athwart ship support provided by plywood bulkheads both of which are attached with or encased in resin and chopped-strand mat. The hulls of these vessels have held up reasonably well over the years.
Since the introduction of the 1985 model, the 36's have been constructed with a molded, single piece fiberglass deck and deckhouse with balsa and plywood used for reinforcing."
The engines and hull are in good condition. She does need some cosmetic TLC but the seller is motivated and willing to negotiate on the price. All offers will be considered.
