A crowd favorite, the Catalina 36 is one of the most successful designs ever built in this size range. She’s graceful, strong, and fast, yet very comfortable. Tribute has a wing keel for shallow water capability, air conditioning, in-mast furling, chartplotter, and radar. Combined with a solid below decks autopilot, all of her equipment and an accommodating deck and cabin layout make Tribute an excellent example of the popular Catalina 36 MkII.

BOAT IS LOCATED IN: Washington, NC
Berths for seven are provided in V-Berth (2), port settee (2), starboard settee (1), and aft cabin berth (2). The main cabin is nicely finished in Crystal Ultraleather. Down the companionway, the galley is open, light, well-ventilated, and provides plenty of storage. The head is located conveniently to port forward of the dinette. Opposite the galley is a nav station with swivel seat, chart table, and electrical panel. A convertible breakfast table that allows the owner to leave the large dinette table stored on the main bulkhead for larger meals or more diners. With the bulkhead mounted table out of the way, the interior cabin space is enormous, giving the cabin a true big-boat feel. The private aft cabin is accessible to starboard just aft of the nav station.
Possibly the best galley ever in a 36-footer! Complete with an Adler-Barbour refrigeration system, the food-cooling needs are taken care of in a dual top-loading insulated icebox. A Hillerange propane stove has 2 burners and an oven and is gimbaled for duty under sail. Complementing the galley set-up is a dual stainless steel sink, hot and cold pressure water, built-in trashcan, and plenty of storage space.
A reliable Thetford marine head is provided along with a shower with hot and cold water. Hot water is supplied electrically by a hot water heater when dockside and via a heat exchanger from the engine when underway. A 12-Volt shower sump pump discharges shower water, helping to keep the bilge clean and odor-free. White fiberglass and Formica surfaces provide light and easy to clean surfaces. Mirrors are plentiful and conveniently placed behind and beside the sink. The owner’s cabin forward has private access to the head. A 17-gallon holding tank may be emptied via a dockside pumpout or discharged via a 12-Volt macerator pump and thru hull.
The Catalina 36MkII has comfortable observation seats fitted integrally into the stern rail to provide additional secure seating in the cockpit. Closed-cell cockpit cushions are custom fit for all cockpit seating. The swim ladder lowers to access the transom platform through a walk-thru in the stern rail, and a folding steering wheel will also make transom access easy. Tribute has an electric windlass servicing two anchors with chain/rope rodes. Rodes lead aft into a hinged anchor locker. There are eight deck hatches and six opening ports to provide ventilation below decks. All sail controls lead aft to the cockpit. A large cockpit locker is found on the port side and smaller lockers are located on either side of the helm seat. The cockpit is very well suited for social gatherings with a fixed-position double drop-leaf fiberglass cockpit table. A dodger, bimini, and connector will help control any inclement weather and provide shade in the cockpit. There is a hot and cold pressure cockpit shower.
Tribute is equipped with Raymarine electronics: speed, depth, and wind instruments are located at the helm in a pod with the Raymarine C80 Color Chartplotter/GPS and Raymarine ST6002 Autopilot with Gyro Stabilizer. There is a Raymarine Repeater below at the nav station to duplicate almost all of the information supplied at the helm. An Icom M422 VHF Radio is available at the nav station with a remote CommandMic located at the helm. The Jensen 4050G 160W stereo has four Bose speakers (two in, two out), CD, AM/FM, and MP3 plug-in. A plug-in inverter will power a personal laptop when shorepower is not available.
Tribute is sloop rigged with in-mast furling and genoa furling. All sail controls are within easy reach in the cockpit. A cruising chute with dousing sock, rigid boom vang, and block-and-tackle preventer are provided.
A Universal 35-horsepower diesel will keep Tribute moving when the wind drops. The engine alternator will charge the batteries when the engine is running and provide hot water away from the dock or at anchor. Tribute has a fixed 3-blade bronze propeller for smooth and reliable engine operation.
All US Coast Guard required equipment is aboard including life jackets, horseshoe buoy, flares, air horn, and fire extinguishers. An automatic electrical and a manual bilge pump are provided.
