Hi Garry,

that is true that it does not point as high as many other boats but then it is a lot wider than most other 36ft boats, it is a trade between speed and space. Having said that , if you are not in a hurray you can just back off a bit and do more tacks.

Hi

They were built in Caringbah just south of Sydney in the eighties / early nineties. There are a few on www.yachthub.com.au for sale now. They are around the $60k to $70k mark for a good one with a decent fit out.

Cheers

Hi Mocking
South Coast 36s were built at Dapto, or near there, south of Woolongong. Rudi Walkens was the builder, starting production there of the SC 25 (Roberts 25) and besides the SC 36 (Roberts 36) he built SC 28 (Triton 28) and the SC 32. All SC 36s were built in the eighties, ending around 1986. A company called RMK Marine in Carrum Downs Vic. picked up the SC36 molds and tried to get back in production in the late 90s or 2000s and renamed the model Pacifica but as far as I can gather, produced just one completed boat called Kool Sid.
BTW - After South Coast Yachts closed up, Rudi Walkens went into partnership with the guy who built the Sea Wind cats. They set up a factory near Woonona, north of Woolongong.
Cheers

Re: Aussie SouthCoast 36 Yachts

Mine was built 1989, so I figure one of the last.

Re: Aussie SouthCoast 36 Yachts

Hi Adam

I saw yours when for sale about 10mths ago?? It looked a beauty!! How have you found it.
My biggest question is, honestly, how does it point into the wind?

Garry

Re: Aussie SouthCoast 36 Yachts

Initial experiences weren't good into the wind - getting her to tack through isn't easy at lower speeds but backing the headsail helped. Once the momentum's up, she's fine. About 40deg to the wind is as close as she'll go - 45 is lovely. I have a lot more to learn with her, that's for sure, but I have to say that she really feels happy in the ocean and I'm delighted with her overall. My plans don't include racing (well, not on this boat) and my ideal is not to be in a hurry. Here are a couple of links to stories I've written on her, about the delivery from Lake Mac to Melbourne.

Re: Aussie SouthCoast 36 Yachts

Good morning all, 2 things have happened in the last 2 weeks. Have bought a South Coast 36 and joined Cruisers. And so it begins.

Re: Aussie SouthCoast 36 Yachts

Hi Adam M,
I bought "NANKEEN" at Newport on the Pittwater. She is a fine vessel that requires a bit of TLC. Giving her a birthday and getting her seaworthy to take home to the Sunshine Coast.

Re: Aussie SouthCoast 36 Yachts

Has anyone replaced the toe rail on their South Coast 36? I'm just looking at swapping out the worn out wood for alloy but before I pull it all off I'd like an idea of what's underneath. If anyone's got info or photos, that'd be a huge help.
