Seller's Description

This classic Ted Brewer bluewater boat is well equipped and ready for offshore cruising anywhere in the world. This solid vessel has been regularly maintained, with many recent upgrades. The interior is spacious with standing head room throughout (6’2), and boasts many large windows to let in plenty of natural light, both rare features in a boat of this vintage. The cockpit offers plenty of seating for evening sundowners, while at sea it provides protection during spirited sails. With a hull speed of 6 knots, she is both fast and stout, fun to sail yet safe. Canadian-built, the cutter-rigged Cabot 36 is consistently on lists of the best blue-water boats. She was made for the North Atlantic, but is perfectly at home in its current Caribbean location of sunny St. Martin in the French West Indies.

She has a large private double V-berth cabin with plenty of cupboards for storage, enclosed side shelves and a hanging locker. Separate entrance to the head, which is also accessible from the main salon. The head is equipped with a manual Jabsco toilet with Y valve, sink, shower, and hot and cold pressure water.

The main salon has a U-shaped dinette to port with a large teak table that drops to form a comfortable double berth. The six-foot settee to starboard serves as an ideal single pilot berth for overnight passages.

At the bottom of the companionway there is U-shaped galley to port with a sink with hot and cold pressure water, and sea water and freshwater foot pumps. This boat holds more fuel and water than most midsize cruisers (455 liters/120 gal). The galley also has a Force 10 three-burner stove with oven, and an Isotherm fridge with ice-making capabilities and secondary cool box.

Great access to the newly reconditioned (2024) Yanmar 4JH2E engine. Ultra-suede cushions in good condition. All windows and port lights have been recently replaced. All cabin lights LED.

April 2022 survey available upon request.

With only 49 of these boats ever produced, this highly coveted unicorn of a cruiser could be yours. Come live the Caribbean dream.

Hull Speed
7.6 kn
Classic: 7.3 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.


Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

7.6 knots
Classic formula: 7.3 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
<16: under powered

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.


SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
<40: less stiff, less powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.


Ballast / Displacement * 100

<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
275-350: heavy

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.


D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.


Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
<2.0: better suited for ocean passages

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.


CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
