About this Sailboat:
The Columbia 36′ Mark II is an Ocean Racer/Cruiser designed by William Crealock, a renowned Naval Architect. The Columbia 36′ Mark II is known for her strong hull and excellent handling characteristics. Having a large comfortable cockpit, plenty of headroom down below and 6 (six) spacious berths, has helped to make the Columbia 36′ Mark II a Great Cruising Sailboat. This particular vessel has been sailed in fresh water (Lake Ontario) all its life which has helped to keep her in great condition. Unlike many other Columbia 36′, she has Wheel Steering and the Trans-Pac Modification on her keel which tends to keep her pretty stiff in a blow. Among the recent improvements to her are the re-build of her Atomic 4 engine (2007) and the new Roller Furling System and New 135% Head Sail (2009). My family and I have owned this sailboat for 35 years and she has provided us with countless days of sailing enjoyment and always returned us safety to port. Now that we are moving out of the area, we will miss her!
