Gorgeous – Updated and Mechanically Sound Diesel - 'pre-blister Uniflite.
A rock solid, very well kept (under cover), 1970 Uniflite 36 Sport Sedan. This is a 'Galley Up' model with the galley on the port side after of the helm. Below is the master stateroom in the bow. Aft of it is a large head and shower to port, and a two bunk stateroom on the starboard. The salon's seating lounge seats 4 or more and makes down into a bed for two. It also has 3 large storage drawers beneath it. There is a teak cabinet aft to port that houses a desk with file drawer, the micro wave, the bar, and more storage for whatever. The salon has a custom made teak table with hinged leaves and storage compartments.
This vessel was built before Uniflite had any blisters and is commonly called a 'pre-blister Uniflite.' There are NO blisters anywhere above or below water.
This vessel has a long history of extensive upgrades - check out the full details to learn more. Here's a snap shot of what's been done to the boat:
This MUST SEE vessel is out of the water and in our OnLand Marina in beautiful Anacortes. Give us a call so we can get you aboard today!
The engines were replaced in 2009 with 150hp turboed Hinos with Hurth transmissions. These 4 cylinder engines make working in the engine room a breeze. I run the boat typically around 8 knots with a fuel burn rate of 3.4gph total for both. That's almost 2-1/2 miles per gallon. Top speed with these engines is a bit over 11 knots. They have around 1300 hours now. The OEM exhaust risers were replaced with Stainless Steel risers by Greenwater Heat Exchangers in Tacoma. The engine instruments were also replaced at this time. Special touches were the addition of Aetna Tachs that are accurate to 1 RPM for predicted log racing, and Pyrometers that measure exhaust temperature at the exhaust elbows... useful for determining condition of coolant flow.
The engine room, at that time, was insulated with 2" sound deadening mats by SoundTec in Tacoma (now part of General Insulation Co in Tukwila). These diesels are barely heard when you're underway and the hatches are closed.
A new generator was installed at that time as well. It is an Intec 4.2kw generator i)n a stainless steel sound enclosure that is so quiet it can run while moored next to a sailboat with no complaints.
The fuel tanks are marine fuel grade aluminum that were built by Northwest Tank in 1984. They were inspected inside while the engines were out in 2009 and found to be in beautiful condition with no need whatsoever to replace them. The tanks supplying the mains are saddle tanks providing up to 109 gallons per engine. The tank supplying the generator is 53 gallon capacity that I fill to 15-20 gallons at the start of each season.
The batteries are Dyno 3-H 6-volt deep-cycles. There are 4 of them and supply ample house power. The starting battery is a Dyno 8D which provides ample power for starting all 3 engines. They are all maintained by a Raritan Converter charger which does not dry the batteries, so they only need to be filled once per year and these Dyno batteries typically last 9-11 years.
There are two 50 gallon fresh water tanks which are odor free. Hot water is supplied by a 12 gallon Raritan tank heated by shore power and engine water.
The hull above waterline and the entire superstructure was completely refinished in cross-linked linear polyurethane (commonly known as awlgripped) in 1987. At that time all of the deck hardware was treated to a high quality chrome job, and the windows were replaced with 1983 Uniflite tinted sliding windows with the finest anodizing ever seen. Even 30 years later, every once in a while, someone admiring it from the dock says something like "I thought they quit building Uniflites. Is this new?"
Also at that time, all the railings were replaced with welded 316 stainless with several custom touches by RailMakers in Everett. The side and foredeck railings all have a midrail about 10" above the gunnel to prevent anyone from sliding underneath.
There is also a custom rail about 4" above the top of the house that goes from the back part of the flybridge forward, then bends and crosses the boat on the eyebrow above the windshield, then continues aft down the other side. You can leave the cockpit and hang onto it all the way to the windshield, and then back down the other side for safety. The bridge railings also have a midrail for safety.
Pacific Blue Sunbrella was used for the high-loft cockpit enclosure, as well as the bridge seat cover and the bridge windscreen and dashboard. The cockpit enclosure's windows are huge with 40mil acrylic that polish up beautifully. It also has a skylight at the forward part which is really nice. The rear windows swing up and attach to the top. The side windows slide, and are never rolled in order to maintain their high visibility.
