The 1970 Columbia 36 is an ideal racer cruiser.
Columbia Sailboats are well regarded as not only being sturdy and durable with thick hulls, but also known for their great craftsmanship throughout.
This Beauty is no exception. Recently undergoing some refurbishing to keep her in great condition, she not only sails well, but offers the comforts of home while on the water.
For offshore enjoyment this boat comes with radar, autopilot, UHF radio, two new batteries and a boarding ladder for those peaceful days bobbing at anchor off Catalina. The cockpit has wheel steering, a very generous aft lazarette for storage, easily seats six people comfortably, is surrounded by handsome wood combing with back cushions and detachable life lines to port and starboard.
Below decks you'll find the interior in very good shape. Includes a 3-burner propane gimbaled stove, dual sink, ice box with cooler plate, shower in the head, interior lighting, two aft quarter berths, a dining 6-place settee that converts to a bunk for two, and a spacious V-berth forward. Easily sleeps six. The cushions are attractive and well preserved. Forward of the galley is a nav station with electrical panel and chart storage area. Engine access is excellent, behind the companionway ladder with the access panel removed.
Sails consist of only the main and rolling furler jib and are reported to be in very good condition.
In the 36 foot class, there are very few boats out there with this original quality, refurbishment, and overall condition. She's ready for a new owner and new destinations.
This is a low hour boat -- a long time marina queen. The original motor had 350 hours on it and it was non-operative. It was replaced in January, 2016 with a Beta Marine diesel and has only 32 hours on it. Seller reports that parts and service for this motor are easy to obtain. The old metal fuel tank was replaced with a new plastic fuel tank of twelve gallons, which gives her a fuel capacity of about 41 gallons. New prop shaft and a folding prop completes the propulsion. Gauges are new. Rigging is reported to be sound. Top decks are freshly painted. The diver reports that she could use new bottom paint.
