This Union 36 has been equipped for long term cruising with many features in addition to her classic look. She has: Garmin GPSmap 498, Raymarine ST6002 auto pilot, Raymarine ST60, windvane, watermaker, 1000 watt inverter/charger, Racor dual fuel filters, dripless shaft seal, single side band radio, radar, depth sounder, mast stored spinnaker pole, life raft, propane heater, and much more. Beautiful well maintained teak inside and out, and on a scheduled bottom cleaning. The slip is transferable to the new buyer, with approval of application by marina.

The Union 36 is a heavy-displacement, full-keel, double-ended cutter-rigged cruising yacht designed specifically for ocean sailing. It has a low chin bow, a short canoe stern, a long flat run aft, and a fairly straight deadrise in the mid-section over a V-bottom. The interior of the Union 36 is straightforward, with plenty of headroom and ventilation. It is a good-sized boat with plenty of storage below. 

The main saloon features a large U-shaped dinette to port (with plenty of storage behind and beneath the seats) and a long settee to starboard. The settee pulls out to form a sea berth or additional seating for the dinette. There’s also a full-sized pilot berth (often called the pile-it berth, for its propensity to collect clothes, books, pillows, and whatnot) above this settee.

The U-shaped galley is located to port and contains a deep double sink, a three-burner CNG stove/oven, and a 12-cubic-foot icebox. Although the galley is snug and has limited counterspace, it is functional and contains numerous drawers, lockers, and other storage spaces.

Across from the galley is another sizable locker and a generously sized, stand-up navigation station. A large quarter berth occupies the starboard quarter.

Light and ventilation are provided by eight, oval-shaped, opening bronze ports, a large butterfly hatch in the main cabin, and a smaller hatch located in the V-berth. Both hatches are wood reinforced with stainless-steel rod.


From a structural standpoint, the boat is typical of Taiwanese-built boats from that era. Displacing 22,000 pounds, the hull is heavily constructed, almost to the point of being over-built.

The hull is thick, hand-laid fiberglass, while the deck is 5/8-inch teak planking over a sandwich of 3/8-inch fiberglass, 3/4-inch plywood, and another 3/8-inch glass layer. The cabin top is slightly lighter composite, using half-inch plywood as the core. The hull-to-deck joint is both through-bolted and glassed over on the inside. Rarely used in todays production boats (which rely on high-strength adhesives at this joint instead), this labor-intensive approach yields a long-lasting watertight joint.
