A comfortable long-distance cruiser that is workboat-tough and sea kindly. From stem to stern, this handsome extension of our Stanley 36, the company’s flagship, is a wonderful marriage of traditional lobster boat and refined cruising yacht. True to its solid Down East pedigree, its design is clean, functional, and beautiful. This model was designed with comfort in mind, whether you’re cruising the New England coast, traveling the Intracoastal Waterway, or spending the winter in warmer climes.
More than seven feet long, the covered cockpit leads into the salon/pilothouse, then forward to two cabins. Finished in the traditional Herreshoff manner, the interior’s bulkheads are Awlgripped in white with varnished Honduras mahogany trim. In the 12-foot-long, full-beam salon/pilothouse, the steering console is installed on the starboard side, with a fully equipped galley located just aft.
When it’s not mealtime, covers pull out over the sink and stove to create a handy chart table. Adjacent to this area is a dinette that can be designed to convert into a guest bunk. In the forecastle, the private master cabin features a centerline double berth with access from either side.
To port and starboard are comfortable seats, a bureau, and a hanging locker. Just aft of the master cabin is an owner’s study, a conveniently private space whose settee converts to a double berth when a second cabin is needed. When not entertaining guests, the half-bulkhead between the two cabins has a pleasingly spacious feeling.
When company is aboard, this partition can be closed off with curtains, folding doors, or a sliding bulkhead that functions like the roll-top of an old desk. In the head, a separate enclosed stall shower provides a touch of luxury. For added convenience, the 39’s deck is spacious enough to accommodate your dinghy.
