Well built Canadian boats, but they all are getting old. The hulls should hold up quite well and would be worth fixing up. It's the gear attached that may be the bigger expense. If you found one in good shape I would add it to your list. These are cutters made for heavy weather and hauling stuff. You can't win races except that when the wind picks up many other boats will be heading back to the dock when you are still sailing.

I agree with Paul. These are strong, quality, comfortable boats and in Good Condition they can take you pretty much anywhere. For logs from some people who sailed one for years in the Caribbean go here:

I agree with all of the earlier comments.
See also Carolyn and Rick O'Brien’s “Windborn III” pages, which have a lot of good information.

Re: Bayfield 36- Thoughts?

Just a bump, I have been considering a B36 and am having a difficult time finding user info.
I know about the Yahoo Group but feel they might be a bit biased in there opinions.
My plans have me moving to Texas next year so I am in no rush.
I will be sailing with my nephew, having 2 ready berths will be necessary.
We will have family visits and plan to give up one berth when they arrive.
I wonder about gear locker space, we are both divers.
If possible I would like to carry a hooka dive compressor rather than SCUBA tanks, we can rent when needed.
The little info I can find seems at times to be conflicting regarding performance and ability.
All that is agreed on is it is slow. Some say wet, some dry, poor cockpit drainage etc.
I have also not seen any B36's in my local area so I will need plane tickets for hands-on.
Anyway, just a bump.

Thanks,
the FNG

Re: Bayfield 36- Thoughts?

I believe there are two up for sale in the PNW at the moment.

I have heard they are considered large for a 36 footer. I think the Bayfield 40 is basically the same boat with a bowsprit and ketch rig - which kind of supports the large 36 foot comments.

They tend to go for 70-100k used in this area in CDN dollars.

Re: Bayfield 36- Thoughts?

There's a nice one for sale here in Daytona Beach. Think he's asking $55K. From what I've seen and heard she's in good condition and had some serious refitting lately.

Re: Bayfield 36- Thoughts?

Very similar to Bayfield are Gozzard cutters built more recently by Ted Gozzard. As the Gozzard fleet ages there are some good buys becoming available.
