PDQ 36 Cruising Catamaran for sale by owner, PDQ Capella 36 catamaran for sale, PDQ 36 catamaran for sale

S/V Tisha Baby is a Mexico based 1989 PDQ 36 catamaran SOLD!!

The S/V Tisha Baby is a PDQ 36 Capella Classic. This is a well-built nimble-sailing cruising catamaran which was designed for families instead of charter companies. Overall, 99 PDQ 36s have been built , making it one of the most successful cruising catamarans manufactured in North America.

We are selling our PDQ 36 catamaran, but we are cruising the Sea of Cortez this winter. If you are interested, the best place to see it is in the Sea of Cortez!

The PDQ 36 provides an excellent combination of comfort, safety, performance and affordability in an impeccably manufactured yacht. This boat was not designed to fit in as many charterers as possible for a week at a time. It was designed for a couple with occasional guests. The result is excellent accommodations for four rather than cramped accommodations for 8.

The spacious layout features 2 forward staterooms with queen berths. Each stateroom has 2 dressers and one hanging locker. The storage space is incredible and it is easily accessed.

The galley (down in port hull) with counter space and storage rarely seen in boats this size. The galley down configuration and the hatch configuration produce a galley that stays comfortably cool even in the tropics.

Aft of the galley is a garage sized storage room of extraordinary capacity. There is over 6 feet of shelves on each side of this room for spares, provisions and toys.

The Engel freezer is located at the aft of this room and is convenient to the galley.

The saloon occupies the full width of the bridge deck and has very comfortable dining for 4 and reasonable dining for 7.

The saloon settees have drop-in panels and cushions to provide 2 short single berths. These are ideal for children and also double as passage berths.

The nav station is in the starboard hull and features a desk-style area for charts or computers as well as access to the radios, breakers, battery monitor and dual solar ammeters. Also in the nav area is an 8 foot long storage cabinet with smoked sliding doors; crazy amounts of storage with easy access. There is no having to lift a mattress or cushion and root around in a dark space as is the case on many boats.

The head is aft of the nav area with head sink, shower a hanging locker. It is truly one of the most spacious heads I have seen on anything short of a mega-yacht.

Overall, the superb design of the PDQ 36 creates a stunning, airy interior offering privacy, a gracious entertaining area, and two luxurious staterooms complete with queen-size beds. She is the ideal size for single-handing, perfect for family cruising, or two couples on a holiday. Every PDQ is hand-crafted with custom-fitted cabinetry, incorporating the finest cherry veneers, teak accents and three coats of varnish throughout.

The PDQ 36 is constructed of the highest grade, 100 per cent vinylester resins, biaxial knitted fabrics with Klegecell coring fused together under vacuum pressure. The yacht is built with tremendous structural integrity, designed for severe sea conditions. She has six watertight flotation tanks fore and aft offering unparalleled buoyancy and safety. A PDQ will sit upright on her keels and rudders for convenient storage, a bottom scrub, or beaching. Enjoy the near absence of heeling, feel the confidence of great stability no matter how fast she's sailing.
