Vessel Overview and Notable Options

Vessel Walkthrough

There are two entrances to the Marine Trader 36. There is a main entrance on the starboard side of the salon midship, and a private entrance to the master stateroom via the aft deck.  

Entering from the main sliding teak door, you enter the main salon. The teak parquet floors are in great shape throughout the yacht.  The main salon has a newer L-shaped Ultrasuede settee. Opposing the main settee in the starboard corner is a well-appointed galley with plenty of counter space and storage. 

A sliding privacy door leads aft to the master stateroom with a pullman style double berth to starboard, and an office area to port.  A private head with separate shower is incorporated into the master stateroom.  There are separate AC controls and a ladder up and out of the private entryway to the aft deck.
