Entering the aft cabin from the companionway in the cockpit there is a double berth to port and guest head to starboard. An entertainment center is forward from the companionway, diagonal to the berth. Forward the berth is a hanging locker and steps leading into the salon and galley. To port is the galley, with a double sink, counter space, cabinets, a three burner stove with oven, a refrigerator and a microwave. To starboard is a U-shaped settee around a dining table to seat six which converts to a single berth. Forward of the dining area is the helm on the starboard side. A large side door is next to the helm seat. To port is the electronics panel facing aft, a built-in fold-up table, and a large side door on that side as well.

Broker's Comments

This Sundowner 36 is well-suited for Northwest family cruising or would be a comfortable and accommodating live-aboard.

I was impressed with several of the design features of this boat. The large master stateroom aft and the salon/dining/galley up on the pilothouse level is a unique and practical use of space. The large windows used throughout create a very open and well-lit sensation, and you can readily see the scenery outside.

I was also impressed with some small additions from an attentive owner, such as a mounted vacuum gauge and DC ammeter at the helm. The Xantrex panel shows the state of the batteries, which were installed July, 2014.

Sundowner tugs have a following of devoted owners for their sturdy build and classic design. It's a lovely boat and is a great vessel for joining the "trawler tug" culture.
