One of the most popular production boats ever designed, the Trojan 36 Convertible was an affordable blend of traditional styling, comfortable accommodations, and good all-around performance. She was built on an easy-riding fiberglass hull with moderate beam, nearly flat aftersections, and a shallow keel for directional stability. Single- and twin-stateroom floorplans were available in the Trojan 36 during her long production run with the two-stateroom layout being the more popular. All were arranged with the galley forward, a step down from the salon, and a lower helm was a popular option. For most years, teak trim and wall coverings were used throughout the interior, and large cabin windows admit plenty of natural lighting. On deck, the cockpit is big enough for some light-tackle fishing, and the tournament-style flybridge provides seating for up to five. A teak cockpit sole was standard through 1976—a potential source of problems that bears close examination. A variety of gas and diesel engine options were offered over the years. Among the most popular, twin 350hp Crusaders gas inboards cruise the 36 Convertible at 19 knots and deliver a top speed in the mid-to-high 20s!
