The Twin Engines and the added bonus of Bow Thruster make for a very manoeuvrable boat – she will spin on her axis and reverse into tight berth positions easily. Twin screw is the way to go! 

The GB36 is purposefully designed to cruise comfortably at 8-11knots with economical fuel consumption.

  • Forward V berth cabin with it’s own shower & electric toilet
  • Main saloon with recovered lounge seating and convertible dinette
  • Galley with sink, microwave, LPG oven & cooktop, fridge/freezer
  • Aft cabin with 1 x single and 1 x double bed configuration and own shower & electric toilet
  • Stainless marine BBQ
  • Window tinting and see-thru screening to main cabin to reduce heat and glare

Same owner for the last 11 years, we have loved using her as a leisure boat, simply relaxing at anchor and even as a live-aboard for 8 months during the pandemic.

Pride of ownership shows, with the typical abandoning of common sense on what we’ve spent on her upgrades (well in excess of asking price). She is an extensively renovated vessel inside & out, with receipts and insurance valuation available to genuine buyer. Available for private viewing, currently lying northern Gold Coast.

We’re relocating due to a change in family circumstances and sadly we’re looking for her next home with another GB fan ready to cruise her for her next 10 or 20 years!
