1979 Union (Taiwan) Polaris 36 Cutter Cutter Sailboat in Honolulu, Hawaii

Stock #208121

This 36' Union Polaris Cutter is a TRUE BEAUTY!

Recent Survey - October 2020 - valued this boat at $40k!

She is a blue water cruiser which will provide LOTS of memorable days on the water for you and your family or friends.

This is one of those boats with true character which everyone should get the opportunity to sail aboard in their lives!

As is evident from the photos and videos, this solid, classic vessel has been well-loved, well maintained and is in good condition for her age and usage.

Based on a Hans Christian design by Robert H. Perry, this vessel was built in Taiwan with custom master craftsmanship throughout.

The most recent in-water survey determined her value at $40k in October 2020.

Prior to that a haul-out and professional inspection was carried out in 2017. At that time, a complete bottom job was carried out and new cutlass bearings installed. Since then the bottom has been professionally cleaned and checked every two months. Ongoing preventative maintenance (oil change, new belt, etc.) was recently completed.

In 2012, a new Yanmar 50HP diesel was installed which still has very low hours. There is no documentation on the engine replacement. Please see the video of the engine starting and running. It's shiny and purrs! There is no hour meter hooked up to the newer engine but the hours are 360.

She can comfortably sleep seven people in a private v-berth cabin, jumbo double quarter berth, dinette conversion and single salon bunk. She will make a wonderful liveaboard for a couple or single person but is probably not suitable for a family.

The unique enclosed head room has a new Jabsco marine toilet, 11-gallon hot water heater for the shower, sink and mirror. The door configuration allows for the shower room to be separated from the salon and cabin, extending into the gangway and doubling in size.

Recent Upgrades Include:

-Fuel & tank cleaned/polished in 2019
-Brand new head installed with new hoses
-New batteries and ProMariner battery tender/charger

All teak below deck is in very nice condition. The teak above deck is also beautiful but could benefit from some attention.

Both teak and fiberglass parts of the deck appear to be solid with no soft spots.

She was sailed from Kauai to Oahu in 2017 and was sailed regularly around the windward side of Oahu until the end of 2020 when her owner got deployed.

I have had the pleasure of being aboard her underway and she is a very solid sailer for Hawaiian waters yet quite swift, even in light winds.

The sails are in average condition. The sail covers appear to be in good to above average condition.

This is a USCG registered vessel.

She is currently moored at Rainbow Marina in Pearl Harbor. The slip is not directly transferable but other slips might be available upon application for active duty or retired military personnel. Otherwise, she will need to be moved to another marina.

From the original brochure - which is currently onboard and can be viewed:

"A Perfect Balance of Beauty and Function -- Gracefully Formed and Well Proportioned -- Properly Installed and Tastefully Done ... A unique blend of Asian craftsmanship and new world technology to produce the finest cruising yacht you can acquire."

Information On Condition

This is one of the most solid and attractive boats for sale in the islands, especially for this price!

Don't let this stunning beauty pass you by!

Please inquire for a FREE Boat History Report - it's perfect.

Known issues are:

-- The dodger is in poor to fair condition. The front eisenglass panels will need to be repaired or replaced but otherwise, it's serviceable. If a new owner chooses to replace it, the "template" is in place to be able to do this. The canvass overhead is still in good condition.

-- There are some soft spots on the interior starboard side bulkhead during the heavy rainy season. These are from previous rail seal leaks. All fiberglass on the exterior is still solid but the interior bulkheads will need to be replaced and the leaks re-glassed. An estimate to complete this work has been received for $2-3k depending on if a new buyer would assist with the work or not. This is only an issue during heavy rains and could also be alleviated by using a large sun shade/rain tarp while at the dock. Water intrusion is NOT from the hull (seawater) nor has it compromised the structure of the deck.

-- The compressor for the icebox is not working. It can still be used as an insulated cooler for ice, food and drinks, though.

-- Two instruments on the cockpit panel are not working.

-- Teak decks are due to be oiled. This is part of ongoing maintenance.

-- Brightwork will need attention int he future, which is not urgent and perfectly normal for a used vessel.

The dinette cushion cover material is quite faded and possibly not to everyone's taste but is perfectly serviceable.

This vessel is very bright and airy with several overhead hatches and portholes.

There are no musty smells, damp or mold but she could benefit from a nice overall cleaning.

+++ Please note, due to the location, no haul-out survey is possible for this boat. An in-water survey, hull inspection (dive), engine inspection and water trial are all possible. +++
