Our beloved Decision, 2011 Beneteau First 36.7, 36’ racer / cruiser sailboat is for sale. Originally commissioned in British Columbia, Canada, she spent her first year club racing which she was very good at.
She was outfitted for ocean cruising and sailed down the Pacific to tropical Panama where she now resides. She is located at Boca Chica, Republic of Panama, on the Pacific side. Moored at Carlos Marina ($200 monthly).
Always meticulously maintained, she is now for sale as her present owners are busy with business commitments that make it difficult to give her the attention she deserves.
Three spacious cabins with room to sleep 8 in total. Head with hot/cold shower. Shower at transom plus swim ladder.
Canadian flag. Fully equipped for racing and offshore cruising. Volvo diesel, low hours.
Extremely well maintained. Very clean and bright. Located in tropical Republic of Panama (Pacific side). Where is. As is.

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 √LWLA 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
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
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
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
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)
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)
