Building rugged, well designed fishing boats seems to come naturally to the people at Pacemaker yachts. You could say it's in their blood and lord knows they've certainly been doing it long enough. It all started with the Leek family shortly after World War II and that tradition continued to the early 1980's when Bob Seidelmann took over the company. Bob and his team didn't want to sit on the five decades of company history. They wanted to build cutting edge sportfishing boats in NJ just like their friends at Viking, Ocean Yachts, Luhrs, and Egg Harbor
The Pacemaker 36 was a popular boat in the late 1970s thanks to her rugged construction, comfortable accommodations, and classic good looks. Indeed, the 36 was considered a handsome design in her day although she’s clearly dated by today’s styling standards. Built on a low-deadrise hull with a shallow keel and a well-flared bow, early models featured a two-stateroom interior with the galley in the salon, a standard lower helm, and a shower stall in the head. Among several updates made to the Pacemaker 36 in 1996, two new floorplans—one with two staterooms and the other with a dinette—became available. In all of these interiors, the combination of solid teak joinery, good headroom, and large cabin windows create a comfortable and relaxing setting for entertaining or cruising. With 80 square feet of space, the cockpit is roomy enough for a couple of anglers and their gear. Topside, bench seating forward of the helm will seat three guests.
The Pacemaker 36 was originally introduced in 1973 and enjoyed a long a successful production run. Pride of ownership shows throughout the boat from her bilges, engine compartment, interior, deck and fly-bridge.She features a large fly-bridge and a roomy cockpit satisfying anglers no matter what you're after. Her interior is laid out with a single stateroom forward, galley down with a dinette opposite and a private head with hot and cold pressure water at the sink and shower.There is a nicely laid-out salon with a sofa-bed to port and swivel chair to starboard. There is good storage throughout the vessel with good lighting and ventilation. The Pacemaker 36' Sportfisherman's power is provided by twin 1996 315HP Cummins Diesels. Whether your plans include fishing, family cruising or maybe a little of both the Pacemaker 36' Sport Fisherman is the optimal choice.

The cabin has a large hanging storage closet and upper storage and shelves as well. All cushions, carpet, head liner and paint have been restored or replaced. There is an overhead hatch for fresh air. There is access to the chain locker from the Master stateroom as well.
The ensuite head is located forward of the galley to port. The combination head and shower feature new shower curtain, new shower head, rebuilt control valve, vinyl waterproof wall covering and new curtains.
The plumbing upgrades include new macerator motor, odor proof hoses and a new 35 gallon holding tank. The tank has excellent cleanout access and is fresh water rinsed.
The modified V hull is built like a tank with sharp entry forward to knife through the seas. The hull then tapers aft to a shallower deadrise that is deep enough to offer a smooth ride while providing lift for speed. This 36 is built like a beast that can dance ballet.
