For an older boat I would recommend a Westerly Corsair 36'.
All the best in your pursuit!

For roomy living quarters, Island Packet 35. VERY roomy living space.

I second the Island Packet 35. More roomy and comfortable down below than most 40' boats I've been on.

The Roberts Spray can be had in fiberglas, you just have to see them when they come up for sale. I watched one get built over a period of 5 years or so in Port Credit Ontario, and she's been all over the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. Huge amount of room in them. I also agree, the Nonsuch has a huge amount of space in them. We have a smaller one at our club and it's impressive to see.

What price range? How will the boat be used? Pretty difficult to make a recommendation without these factors considered. Just any old boat? Columbia 36. I've been crawling all over boats in this range recently & the Columbia & Ericson seemed most roomy, though the Pearson 365 is in the range & a very nice boat for the vintage. If Money is no object, the Beneteaus probably make the best use of the space available. Hunters have a lot of room, as well. But, if your wife is like mine, it won't matter what you get, the space will be filled.(no, I didn't just suggest that my wife is fat!)

Nonsuch 36.



There's a reason why they are more expensive than a lot of 40 footers. People like 'em and find them very liveable...but without the expense of more footage.

Re: What Is the Roomiest 36 Around ?

If you start posting interiors then you'll go to the production boats

bene 361.

Every inch is living space!
The 2 cabin version is even better. The aft is one huger cabin and a huge lazarette.

I agree with bluewatermd and ronbo1 that Island Packets offer exceptional space and have a reputation for solid quality.

Re: What Is the Roomiest 36 Around ?

Another vote here for Nonsuch. In fact, I posit that a Nonsuch 30 will provide more space below than most 36 footers.
