Introduced in 1975, the Marine Trader 36 Sedan achieved a good deal of popularity with entry-level buyers in the 1970s and 80s due to her combination of practical accommodations, economical operation, and a very affordable price. Like most Asian trawlers of her era, the 36 rides on a solid fiberglass hull with hard aft chines, a well-flared bow, and a long, prop-protecting keel. Below, her full teak interior includes two staterooms with the owners cabin to port and the guest stateroom forward. A tub/shower is found in the single head compartment, and the galley was available to port or starboard in the salon. A sliding door at the lower helm provides quick access to the decks while a hatch in the salon sole provides access to the large engine room. On deck, bridge overhangs shelter the side decks and cockpit from rain and sun. Note that the flybridge has enough room to store a dinghy. Additional features include plenty of teak exterior trim, wide side decks, and a teak swim platform. Most 36 Sedans were powered with a single 135 or 120hp Lehman diesel although twin-screw applications are common. Shell cruise at 78 knots with a top speed of about 12 knots.
