|Designed and built by Abbott, the 36 is the ultimate blend of performance and livability. This medium-displacement boat sports a powerful, easily controllable fractional rig. The boat steers easily and is responsive, yet very stable, with the ability to stand up to the biggest waves that most seas can give her. Its uncluttered decks, together with an integrated sail-handling system featuring all top-of-the-line hardware and equipment, provide for ease of handling in all weather conditions. Belowdecks, the Abbott 36 has a spacious functional interior designed for comfort and livability. The fully-equipped, seaman-like galley has a large cooler and adequate storage. The navigation station is large enough to unfold your charts and display your instrumentation. The folding dinette and port and starboard settees provide salon space for living and entertaining. Two quarterberths, convertible settees, and the V-berth can accommodate six adults in sleeping comfort. The large washroom is complete with a marine head, vanity, sink, ample storage, and enough space to install a shower. Lockers, cabinets, and shelves offer easy storage for a full crew. In racing circles, the Abbott 36 has already earned a solid reputation as a sizzler, winning Class D honours in the famous Mackinac Race on its first try, and many club circuit races too numerous to list. Racing or cruising, the 36 takes to either as naturally as it takes to the sea itself.
