She is exceptionally bright and airy feeling, especially with her innovative ?open to below? feature above the galley and lower deck.



The exterior offers a generous cockpit with built in seating for six and wide safe side decks. She is finished in a traditional manor with Teak varnished toe rails, grab rails, and eyebrow. Wide side decks with bow rail facilitate line handling and anchoring with safety and ease.

CONSTRUCTION

The hull and deck utilize hand laid biaxial roving; Thixoptropic modified epoxy resins with coring where suitable of Core Cell structural linear polymer foam. Exterior finish is Gel Coat; deck non skid is ?Moondust? color Awl Grip with polymer bead nonskid and Teak cockpit decking. The toe rail, cockpit coming, eyebrow and hand rails are varnished Teak. There are three opening and Lumar hatches on the coach house common and one larger hatch on the foredeck directly over the master bunk. Ground tackle is managed on a teak anchor pulpit with stainless steel davit and electric windlass feeding chain through a deck hawse pipe to the chain locker. There are six stainless steel opening cabin ports, providing light and ventilation. The pilot house, windshield has opening center section and 3 windshield wipers. There are large side windows, which opened from either fore or aft direction. The aft enclosure of the pilot house is a FRP Bulkhead with opening window and locking Teak Door. A mast with tabernacle is utilized to support electronics and lights. Welded Stainless Steel Safety rails span the fore and side decks. The cockpit has molded seating with aft facing double and a full beam transom seat. A custom transom door filler platform with cushion enables the seat to span the entire beam. A Teak swim platform with swim ladder are accessible through the transom door and with Weaver davits provide dinghy handling.

ARRANGEMENT PLAN & INTERIOR FEATURES

A revolutionary design in the traditional express segment the BLUE STAR 36 was really the first Salon Express with the ?open to below? concept which has become the standard. The helm deck offers exceptional visibility, light and ventilation and is very much connected with the lower deck space. She is an absolute pleasure to cruise aboard if you like to see the sites and feel like you are outdoors while in the climate controlled interior. The helm deck settee converts to a double bunk and there are privacy curtains surrounding the pilot house. Below a functional galley to port services an opposing dinette for six to starboard. The dinette converts to a double sleeper. Forward a head to port with hand shower is common to the passageway and dual entry en-suite to the forward cabin. A generous island double berth is supplemented with side filler cushions to create nearly king size sleeping space. Hanging locker, lockers and drawers abound. Of course the all important deck hatch directly above to pillows allows falling to sleep with the stars and awaking to the dawn sunshine!
