The ALABARE is a 1986 TASHIBA 36 Cutter as produced by the renowned TA SHING SHIPBUILDING in Taiwan. First introduced in 1986, she is the 3rd example produced of this model. Her designer is Robert Perry who arguably one of the most highly-regarded Naval Architects extant and especially when it comes to the creation of classic cruising yachts that can be designed .. and built .. to "go the distance" offshore both literally and figuratively.
Endowed with traditional "good-looks", classic full-keel solid construction as well as performance provided by her powerful cutter rig, the TASHIBA 36 is another superbly-executed yacht by one of world's best yacht production facilities, The TA SHING outstanding teak joinery below & attention to the overall details of construction is sure to impress as it has since 1977!. With her exterior brightwork just redone, the ALABARE has clearly been well-maintained by a very knowledgeable Owner over the years and the results are there for all to see!
The ALABARE is at her Winter Storage location in the Montrose NY area on the Hudson River, "on the hard" and "rig in". She does represent the rare-to-the-market opportunity to acquire a true .. not just claimed! .. "Blue Water" sailing yacht and a literal fraction of the replacement cost for anything remotely comparable. Clients who are seeking just such an opportunity are invited to inquire and schedule an appointment to inspect the ALABARE. .______________________________________________________________________________

Power is provided to the "ALABARE" electrical systems via a 110VAC Shore Power & 12VDC Ship's Service & Engine Systems. There are (2) GUEST Pro Sport 12 battery chargers and an engine 55 AH alternator.
The 12VDC system is powered by (3) battery banks with a total of (5) 12VDC batteries. A single Group 27 battery is used for Engine Start & (2) big 8D batteries that make up the Ship's Service / House Bank are connected only through a XANTREX PathMaker Automatic Power Switch that only connects the Banks when a charging source is available. This eliminates the unfortunate possibility of one Bank draining all of the battery power on the boat. There is a short term manual over-ride .. Battery Parallel Switch .. when batteries must be combined for emergency starting. The Banks, which are connected to separate "on" and "off" switches, are located under the Quarter Berth. The engine alternator, rated at 55 AH, normally charges the (2) Banks, but a GUEST Pro Sport 12 is available as needed. The House Bank power goes to the (18) breaker DC electrical panel.
The third battery Bank, which is located under the V-berth, provides power to the Bow Thruster, the Anchor Windlass and the Wash Down Pump. The Bank is charged by a second GUEST Pro Sport 12 charger.
The Shore Power System is 110VAC and is distributed by (9) branch circuits. There are both AC amperage & DC voltage meters at the pane. The system supports (6) interior outlets. There is a 50' Shore Power Cord. The outlets in the Galley & the Head GFI unit are GFI (Ground Fault protection). From the (2) 30 AH inlets, (1) HUBBELL & (1) MARINCO, on the port side outside of the Cockpit, the line is connected to a GUEST Galvanic Isolator to reduce galvanic currents that cause underwater metal parts to corrode, such as zincs and bronze propellers. From there, the current goes to circuit breakers in the electrical panel box and on to the various electrical components. The electrical bonding system includes, but is not limited to, chain plates, metal seacocks, tankage, engine, mast step, deck plates, and rudder fittings.
