1979 Watkins W36 AC Tri-Cabin
Solid boat with 6'3 of head room, dual access head- sleeps 6 comfortably.

Per the Watkins Owner's Website:

H U L L & D E C K

The hull is molded as a single unit of a combination of polyester resin and fiberglass woven roving and multidirectional chopped strand fiber (MCSF). The keel is molded integrally with the hull and all ballast is contained inside. The deck and cockpit, like the hull, are molded as a single unit of a combination. Plywood coring is incorporated between layers of fiberglass in the cabin top, deck, seat, and cockpit sole areas to give additional stiffness. The non-skid finish is molded into the deck. The exterior finish is pigmented gelcoat molded onto the fiberglass. The boot stripe is also tinted gelcoat molded permanently into the hull.

The hull-to-deck joint is a 'flange' type, which during assembly, is liberally coated with a combination adhesive/sealant. The deck is then lowered onto the hull and fastened in place with stainless steel screws. The aluminum toe rail is then installed, bedded in a heavy layer of the same compound and secured in place with stainless steel through bolts which bonds the toe rail, deck and hull together as one structural member.

There is an anchor well on the fore deck with hawse pipe feeding the anchor rode into the v-berth locker, there are teak grab rails on the cabin top and a large aft cockpit or center cockpit with good back rests and storage lockers. The companionway goes down to seat height, about 12" above the cockpit sole.

R U D D E R & S T E E R I N G

The rudder is made by Foss Foam, molded as two fiberglass halves, the hollow stainless steel rudder post welded to blades is placed inside and the assembly is filled with a high-density foam. The rudder is mounted to a full skeg for strength.

The Edson pedestal steering system operates with stainless steel cables rotating a quadrant bolted and keyed to the rudder post.

SPARS & RIGGING

All spars (mast, boom, and spreaders) are extruded aluminum 6061-T6 alloy, with a protective coating on all external surfaces. The masts have a single spreader, and booms with single reefing.

The standing rigging is stainless steel wire. The forestay attaches to the stem head fitting at the bow. This is fabricated of welded stainless steel backup plates and through bolted to the hull. All other stays and shrouds are attached to chainplates at the edge of the deck and are through bolted to the hull. Additional fiberglass reinforcement is molded into the hull in all chainplate areas.

The main sheet traveler is mounted on the cabin top. Two dual speed winches control the genoa sheets.

The interior is a molded fiberglass unit with bulkheads and cabinetry fastened to it with screws, bolts, and adhesives. The interior molded assembly is bonded to the hull with woven roving and mat, that when completed, forms a single unit structure having great strength and rigidity. The interior is finished with hand rubbed teak accents and the bulkheads and cabinetry are teak veneered plywood. The interior layout is typical with a V-berth forward, the head is aft and connects to both the salon and the owner's stateroom. The galley is aft in the passageway to the owner's stateroom. The galley is equipped with a refrigerator, 4 burner propane stove with eye level oven and double sink. The stairs remove to allow access to the engine.

There are ten opening ports (Gray) and two deck hatches, one in the main salon and one in the V-berth.

Electronics include dual Garmin, auto-pilot, diesel generator, 130w solar panel, wind turbine, VHF, radar, Flat screen TV + much more.

Dinghy included with 4HP Yamaha 4 stroke outboard (not pictured)
