Fraser 36

Hi I am new to this forum but am interested to know if anyone has owned or has experience of the Fraser 36 . I am interested in particular to know how well it sails and if there are any particular areas of concern when looking at one built in 1980.

Re: Fraser 36

Welcome to CF mckinlne !

Never drove or boarded a Fraser, but hear they are well built... Maybe somebody here knows a bit more... Or anything more for that matter!

A quick google search yielded at least some informative reading...

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair...

Mai Tai's fix everything...

Re: Fraser 36

My son has a 30 foot Fraser in Vancouver. The Fraser brothers only built the hulls and the interiors were finished by the owners. So its hit or miss with the interiors depending on the skills of the buyer.

Re: Fraser 36

I was looking at a Fraser 41 a while ago. Turns out most of them have embedded chainplates which, to me, often translates into a disposable boat. Then you have the issue of a huge quality range due to owner finishing. It's too bad---the hulls themselves are said to be quite stoutly built.
