General Details



This 36 Yellowfin is a fishing machine with many upgrades and only 560hrs on the very popular 350 Yamaha 4-Stroke engine package. She features RayMarine G Series Electronics, Simard Autopilot, Latham Racing Steering, Custom Stereo System, and comes with Trailer.


In a recent kingfish tournament in the Gulf of Mexico, Yellowfin Yachts owner Wylie Nagler, at the helm of his company's new 36-footer, left the dock last, in a field of nearly 40 boats that were headed offshore through some 60 miles of six-to-tens. He got there first. The Yellowfin 36 is all about speed and light-tackle fishing. There are no frills, no showers, no fluff. Race-boat performance and dryness make it fishable in a lot of conditions you just might prefer not to be in. But that's why Nagler built the 36.

Hull Modifications
It's a logical step beyond Yellowfin's successful 31-footer, with some significant hull modifications to account for the demands of an additional five feet of waterline. For one thing, the bottom features two separate steps. The theory here is that the only way to loosen up a hull for more speed is to introduce air under it. Further vacuum is avoided by two pair of plaining strakes that break and offset at each step, effectively creating four strakes on each side. A pad keel runs down the centerline, and has a deadrise that's slightly different than the rest of the hull. This expanded keel keeps the boat from falling off keel at high speed, and eliminates the subsequent chine walking that can ensue. Above 60 mph, everything changes, it seems, and considerations of stability and safety take on new urgency.
Hull Design
This is a hull designed for high speed, and with Nagler's background in offshore racing, there's no reason to doubt his theories. This hull combines a wide, flared bow and a graceful tapering sheer, and provides the 36 with classic lines and an exceptionally dry ride. The racing pedigree of the Yellowfin is evident in the rigging, too, with Latham throttles and steering providing the control for high performance
Fishing Capabilities
So the thing runs, but does it fish? All the components are here. A 13-inch covering board allows you to carry a full castnet from the bow clear around to the cockpit without having to climb down off the gunwale. A 60-gallon live well behind the leaning post features a second Lucite cover inside to pressurize the tank, prevent spillage and keep the bait from getting beaten up. A second 25-gallon well sits in the transom bulkhead.
