Built in Nova Scotia after 1992, the Monk 36 gained popularity in the 1980s as a durable and affordable Taiwan import with a classic trawler profile and a traditional all-teak interior. Construction is solid fiberglass, and the hull features a skeg-protected prop as well as an upswept, well flared bow that contributes to her dry ride. Early models came with plenty of exterior teak—decks, window frames, hatches, etc.—but in later models built in Nova Scotia only the handrails are teak. The galley-up floorplan of the Monk 36 remained essentially unchanged over the years although post 1992 models eliminated the tub in the aft head and moved the bed away from the wall in the owner’s stateroom—a big improvement. On deck, raised bulwarks and a high rail make movement around the house safe and secure. Additional features include a functional mast and boom assembly, a well-arranged flybridge, bow pulpit, and swim platform. A single 120hp or 135hp Lehman diesel was standard in early models (about 7 knots at cruise). Later models with a single 220hp Cummins cruise at 9–10 knots. Over 250 Monk 36s are reported to have been built
