1979 Mariner Yachts 36


I've owned and sailed this boat since 1991. I've spent many years making her into exceptional cruiser. Today, she is what I envisioned. She no longer has berths for 7. What she does have is great accomodations and storage for 2, with capacity for 2 guests.

I've moved up to a larger boat, and it's time for this worthy boat to embark on new adventures with another sailor.

This boat is at the tail end of a cosmetic refit. There is teak trim yet to install, and electronics to connect. If you're willing to put a small amount of effort into this boat, you can get yourself a fine cruiser for $35k. She is currently on the hard in north Jersey.
