This Cabo Rico Tiburon 36 ketch is a bluewater cruising sailboat that evolved from the many sea-going experiences of its designer W.I.B. Crealock, its builder Cabo Rico, and scores of dedicated cruising sailors. From the full keel up to her traditional lines, she was designed for safety, comfort, and beauty.  This vessel offers forced air diesel heat, water maker, Awlgrip hull, custom cored decks, solar panels and more, allowing an experienced sailor or novice to safely and in comfort cruise the Pacific Northwest or the worlds oceans.


Forward is a large head with functional shower and abundant storage. Moving aft, you have the salon with the L-shaped settee to starboard and a straight settee to port with a leafed table that serves both settees and comfortably seats five. The port settee converts to two single berths with one being a pilot berth with lee cloth. Aft of the salon and to port is a very sea worthy L-shaped galley offering good counter space, and excellent storage. To starboard and just forward of the passage way leading to the aft cabin is the navigation station. As you continue aft thru the passage way (which allows excellent engine access), is the master suite. The master suite offers a full sized queen berth, sitting area, hanging locker, sink, and excellent storage.

Special Note re: Decks and bottom

In 1997 all of the teak decking and coring were removed and closed cell foam coring was installed and glassed over. All the port holes and coring were removed and replaced with West Systems filler then re-bedded. All portlights are coated Lexan cm-2
The bottom was taken down in 1997 and Interlux Barrier Coat applied. In 2004 the bottom paint was removed and two additional coats of Barrier Coat were also applied.
