Interior

The interior is a satin cherry finish which looks exquisite. The overall Herrschoff classic interior with white bulkheads in contrast to the cherry is pure tradition. 

As you go down the companionway the navstation is to starboard and has a very nice chart table and solid wood drawers. To port is a compact galley consisting of a  large stainless sink with cupboards above the countertop. 

Two very large settee berths are amidships with a beautiful folding cherry table. Both berths are just right for an afternoon read or to stretch out for a comfortable nap. 

Just forward of the main salon is an enclosed marine head to starboard with spacious storage opposite to port. A custom butterfly hatch is directly above the head providing incredible ventilation and natural lighting. 

Forward of the head is a V berth for storage or a restful night's sleep.

Electronics

Raymarine depth, speed and wind are located in the cockpit to the forward starboard. A VHF is installed just forward of the companionway at the nav. station and within easy reach of the cockpit. An AM/FM CD radiion is also installed at the nav station.

Electrical

An instrument panel for all DC electronics combined with an AC plug in for battery charging is standard.

Deck

The deck comes with teak side decks and a teak cockpit as standard. 

Aft of the cockpit is a spacious aft storage locker and room for seating on the stern rail. 

The cockpit itself is spacious and all winches are within reach of the helmsman. The mainsail sheet are located directly in the center of the cockpit making easy trim for any crewmember. At the aft of the cockpit seats are two very nicely configured, insulated beverage coolers set below the seats. These are very convenient and well nicely done. 

All control lines for the rig lead aft to winches and line stoppers. 

The rig is a fractional rig with an easy to handle 120% jib and large main. She sails wells under main alone, but really powers up with the headsail. She is a surprisingly dry boat even when beating to weather in 25 knots of wind. 

Forward of the mast is the butterfly hatch and a dorade vent. 

A varnished teak toe rail compliments the teak decks and adds a nice touch to the overall classic and traditional deck design. Hull & deck laminate to full Lloyds and ABS designs. GRP hand lay up with Lloyds & ABS Approved materials Teak-inlaid cockpit seats. Teak deck with UV resistant Sikaflex caulking . Bronze through-hull fittings with gate valves. Hull and deck joint bonded with glass fibre Teak Capping rail on raised bullwark SS stem head fittings Six (6) polished SS trim port-lights Sail locker aft lazerette. Removable Lead Keel ballast keel with stainless steel bolts Removable high aspect rudder with cast bronze shoe Classic hand made teak skylight on foredeck One teak dorade vent boxes with stainless steel cowls

Additional Information



To quote one of America's best yacht designers when discussing the Six-metre designs, Olin Stephens stated, "In any design the most important factors of speed seem to be long sailing lines, large sail area, moderate displacement and a small wetted surface. Then comes beauty which is meant as clean, fair and pleasing lines. The easiest boats to look at seem the easiest to drive." 

The D36 meets the qualifications of easy to look at and easy to drive.

The Doubloon Story-Design & Build of a Classic Yacht

Andy Pitt

Published by \'Sail\' - USA
Having built and sailed yachts for more than thirty years the opportunity to design and build my own boat came as an unexpected surprise. I’d thought about it for years but money and the situation were never quite right. Home builds can start well funded and euphoric but after a year or two many projects fail due to other commitments. The end, and the funding, should always be in place and in sight. To also design and build you own boat seems even more risky but suddenly the time was right and after the initial drawings I was hooked.\\r\\n\\r\\nThe classic ‘eight meter’ yachts are considered by many boat people as the most beautiful of all yachts. They represent a period of yacht design, building, and sailing from a time far different from today. William Fife, Charles Nicholson, Morgan Giles, Johan Anker, Alfred Mylne, and Henry Rasmussen, are but a few of the great designers synonymous with successful eight meter racing yachts. The real heyday of these yachts was from 1906 to 1936 but the class is still active today. They all had a narrow beam and long thin ends. ‘Connewago’ a typical example was 48’ 8” (14.86 m) overall with a beam of just 7’ 11” (2.41 m). In the summer of 1935 there were fifteen eight meter’s on the start line at Cowes. At least seven of these original yachts are still sailing today seventy years later, a tribute to the design and construction of these lovely boats. Eight meter yachts are not \\\\\\\'one designs\\\\\\\' and of course not eight meters long. The boats were subject to a complicated rating rule started after hefty international debate in 1906. This was later changed in 1919. Eight meters sailed in all the Olympic Games from 1908 to 1936. Classic ‘eights’ were built of wood, most commonly mahogany on oak frames but steel angle frames were occasionally used a method referred to as ‘composite’ construction.\\r\\n\\r\\nLovely and desirable as they are, forty five to forty eight feet is too big for me and most boat people agree a wooden yacht demands a great deal of time money and patience. They are not for the feint hearted but are incredibly desirable.\\r\\n\\r\\nDesign Criteria 2003:I wanted a classic sailboat with good looks and feel like an ‘eight meter’ but more ‘owner friendly’. The boat would not be based on, or for, racing. It had to have ‘low maintenance and running costs’ but not at the expense of loosing the ‘classic look’. It would be a boat which could be sailed alone but comfortable for two or three. It would also have a snug cabin with full standing height, toilet and galley, low tech gear and a modern underwater shape. She would have moderate draft and be well balanced on the helm. She also had to fit inside a standard ships container with mast, rig, and all our gear. This might seem a bit odd but I work as boat builder in Asia, sometimes in Europe and Scandinavia so need to send my boat where I’m living, at a reasonable cost. I also want to sail in the places like Rhode Island and the Pacific North East and it would not be possible to sail the boat there.Studying a variety of eight meter lines drawings I decided the boat would have an eight meter load waterline which gives enough space below for the cabin layout we wanted. Bits and pieces were ‘pirated’ off the classic eights with some inevitable personal ideas included. Within a month a working lines plan and basic design was completed. \\r\\n\\r\\nThe boat has an eight meter waterline (27 Feet) with an overall length of eleven meters (36 feet). With a beam of 2.34 meter (7.67 feet) she can just fit a standard 40’ ‘high cube’ ships container with a hair to spare.\\r\\n\\r\\nThe build: I built the boat myself in Thailand with the help of local labour. The hull lines were lofted (drawn) full size on the floor of the

2005 Celebrity Yachts D36

The term daysailer is used often these days in the boating community. When the owner of this D36 was looking for a daysailer we found that most were either too small and wet for sailing on those early Spring days, or candidly they were entirely overpriced for a boat that would truly be used for day use only!

An issue with many of the boats we looked at was that although the deck layout etc. were designed for single handling, the interiors often suffered. Not so with this boat. Down below she fitted out with varnished cherry wood, has plenty of headroom and is light and well ventilated by ample portholes and a huge hatch forward. She comes with a V-berth cabin forward with one head which is accessable via both the cabin forward and the saloon aft. The saloon has bench seating port and starboard which offer additional berths as well being fitted with a foldout settee for meal time. The aft-galley galley to port is adequately fitted for overnights with a 2 burner stove, stainless steel sink and generous stowage. There is a nav station to starboard.Although we call her a daysailer, maybe we really should call her an overnighter or weekender!

After purchasing the boat she went to a RI boat builder and the following improvements were made:

Main traveler installed aft of the cockpit, with adjustment lines run outboard to mid-cockpit
Jib traveler installed just forward of the boom
Shower installed in head
Shower installed in cockpit
Installed improved gray-water pumping system
Newly designed and built foredeck hatch
Single-line reefing of mainsail from the cockpit
Full cockpit cushions
Raymarine A65 Dual Display GPS/chart plotter
Dutchman mainsail flaking system
Boom cover modified for Dutchman lines
Canvas boat cover for winter storage

If you are thinking of classic lines, good sailing, and tons of upgrades, come have a look. Stored on the hard under a custom cover for the winter.
