The flybridge seats six adults with two swivel seats and four fixed seats. In addition, a built-in 12-V refrigeration unit, and cocktail table are available. The seating allows everyone to enjoy the view in luxury. The upper helm station features full instrumentation and ample space for electronic equipment, and the inside helm station has 360-degree visibility which is ideal in inclement weather. A side door accesses the wide side deck, and the large cockpit is accessible to the salon and galley. The spacious salon on the 36 is for living and entertaining.

The galley features a full stove and oven, microwave, refrigeration (2019), Icemaker (2019) and numerous lockers. The drop-leaf table at the wrap-around settee seats six, and the settee converts into a double bed for additional guests. The entire salon area is equipped with opening windows and screens for complete ventilation. As well, there is a transom door leading onto a swim platform for boarding and swimming.

The owner's stateroom with a queen-size centerline double bed and private access to the head is forward, away from any noise from the cockpit, salon, and engine room. The dual access door head has plenty of storage for towels and linen. The private guest cabin features large over-under bunks with an abundance of storage and a hanging locker.

The hull is cored with Airex for excellent impact resistance, sound deadening, strength-to-weight ratios and insulation properties. State-of-the-art application of NPG isophthalic gel coats, vinylester resin skin coat, unidirectional, and biaxial laminates and full-length stringer grid system give every Voyager strength and durability. The entire interior surface of the hull is coated with fire-retardant resin. The deck is cored with closed cell PVC foam for rigidity and insulation. The hull-to-deck joint uses an external flange that is mechanically fastened and epoxy sealed. The entire flange is covered with a strong, impact-resistant rubrail, with a stainless steel insert. Electrical wiring is to ABYC codes and all underwater fittings are bonded for protection. Marine grade seacocks are used throughout the Voyager with double hose clamps. The propeller shafts are carried on custom vee struts to prevent damage. While the Voyager has a planing hull, the unique 17-degree transitional deadrise hull design avoids the pounding motion motion found in most constant deadrise planing boats.

Unlike slow trawlers that require large engines just to reach speeds of 15 knots, the 36 operates at only 60-percent power ratings at 15 knots, saving fuel and engine wear. Most trawlers have semidisplacement chine hull designs, which provide little hydrodynamic lift from forward motion (parasitic drag increases dramatically with increased speed because these hulls dig into the water instead of lifting, creating a large bow wave and a very wet boat, with rolling motion that can be violent and very uncomfortable). The semidisplacement hull, then, offers no real advantage for a yacht where weight is a relative constant, but on a displacement hull the ballasted keel, mast, and sails create equilibrium to limit rolling motion. The 36 incorporates a hull design that is seaworthy, fast, and economical to operate. In addition to speed, range, and motion, the flared bow sections keep the water and spray off the deck. Moreover, the twin diesel engines are placed very close to the centerline of the boat so that in the event of an engine failure the other engine will allow the Voyager safely steer and dock.

Don't wait to make an appointment to see this versatile yacht. She won't last long.


Master Stateroom is forward with queen island berth with storage beneath. Hanging lockers aft port and starboard and lots of light and ventilation from a screened overhead hatch and two opening ports. Her hull ceilings are lined with planking.

Aft to port is a door with direct access to the Head with an athwartships shower/tub combination. A second door opens to the passageway.

Guest Stateroom is to starboard opposite the head with upper and lower berths. The upper is hinged to fold down making a settee arrangement. There is bin stowage beneath the lower and aft inboard is a hanging locker with two drawers beneath.

Main Saloon offers the galley, helm station and an L shaped settee in the aft starboard side of this space. There is storage beneath as well as in the unit dividing the helm from this area. Forward is the helm station with fold down seat and opening door to the side deck. Opposite to port is the L shaped Galley, with Corian countertops, extending all the way aft. There is dish storage forward and additional cabinetry above and outboard. It is outfitted with:

  • Double stainless sink
  • Princess 3 burner stove w/oven & broiler
  • (2019) Isotherm refrigeration
  • (2019) Isotherm Icemaker

Out through the centerline aft double doors is the full width cockpit. Two large lazarette hatches provide access to a generous storage area beneath the cockpit. There are steps to the side decks; a transom door to the swim platform and a stainless ladder with teak treads to the Flybridge. A Hot & Cold shower system is mounted in the side of the port cockpit.

The Flybridge is particularly generous for a boat of this size. There is a helm and companion chair forward, L shaped settee to port and an aft spacing bench seat. Lots of storage beneath the settee and bench seat.
