Easterly Yachts information

I am considering getting a bigger boat this year. The Hunter 22 has served me well to get back into sailing after a 20 year absence but just is not big enough to do what I want.
I have located a 36' Easterly that look very interesting but....
From the one individual I have found that has an Easterly (38) these are very limited production boats.
Anyone have any information????????????????
Craig

Thanks for the info. I had most of that already but every bit helps.
I really hoped there was an owner or 2 of the 36 or 38 out there that would respond.
My research shows that only 6 of each model was built so the pickins are slim.

I saw one on the hard this fall and they look nice as far as the hull goes.

Gord,

The NADA is way low. BUC values them at twice that.

I am getting close to making an offer on a 1973 model that seems to be in good shape.

Any information you may have about the boat you own would be helpfull.
since there are so few of them out there, it is very hard to find out much about them.

Thanks in advance for your help,
Craig

What model are you looking at?
Mine is a 1976 Easterly 36' Aft cabin model. I think they made 4 models. A 31' aft cockpit, a 36' aft cockpit, a 36' aft cabin (center cockpit), and a 38' aft cockpit. The 36' boats go net 12tons~14tons. 80 gallons of water in a fiberglass bow tank, 40 gallons of diesel in a fiberglass mid ship tank over the keel. The tanks are molded in. The hull is almost an inch thick soild glass on the bottom. The boats are a little rolly due to the 10'10" beam. Kind of narrow by todays standards. Draft 5'3", loaded draft 5'9". They were a little under powered. Mine was refitted with a Perkins 50hp in the mid 1990s. I have a 3 blade prop 13" X 8" and it will hit 8 knots at 3000 rpm. Hull speed is a little over 8 knts. The boats are fast, well balanced, handle well, and back up great. The decks are cored with plywood. Mine has a little delamination where a previous owner did not seal a hawse pipe to the chain locker. No big deal to replace the plywood. The deck stepped mast has a solid wood (teak) compression post. The cabin sole is 3/8" teak and holly over marine ply (over kill). The 2 opening deck hatches are soild fiberglass with prisms added. They were built for blue water, but for now I use mine in brown water. BUC for my boat was $29k bristol, $21k good condition There is a guy in Fla that races his in the nonspinnaker class and he does ok. Let me know if you want any specfic information.

I have a 1976 Easterly 36'. They were build in Pearlington, Mississippi between 1971 and 1980. They were sold to Pearson Yachts, I believe.

Extremely well built boats. The 30s formed a racing class in the New Orleans area.
