1984 Monk Trawler
What better name for a Monk than Friar Tuck II. The Monk Trawler is known to have quite a following and it is understandable as to why. The build quality appears superior to many other trawlers I have seen. The workmanship below with all the teak cabinetry, doors, joinery and finishes is lovely and warm. There are no teak decks to clean, caulk or replace. The interior as well as exterior space seems larger than other 36 trawlers.
The present owners have owned and loved her for 12 years and used her only in the Chesapeake Bay. Four years ago they installed a brand new Cummins 215HP Diesel engine and she has less than 400 hours on her. What was once an 8 knot boat, they owner says she will run 10-12 knots now with ease.
If you are looking for a comfortable vessel to do "The Loop", here she is. She has a tabernacled mast with built-in crutch on the cabin deck, for those low bridges. If you just want to cruise in comfort, live-aboard, or have a weekend get-away, look no further. Friar Tuck II is a well found vessel that is looking for her next adventure.

Here is a vessel with a comfortable, warm and inviting interior that has plenty of storage for those long adventures. Classic aft cabin layout, private guest cabin forward, two heads, second helm on large flybridge and nice walk around decks makes her a perfect platform for cruising.
Starting forward is the guest cabin with V-berths, en-suite head, drawers, lockers, shelves outboard and hanging closet. The head is fully equipped with commode, marble top vanity, hand held shower, storage outboard and under the vanity and an opening port for excellent ventilation.
Heading aft you enter the Main Salon; She has an inviting, warm interior with lovely custom teak joinery thru out as well as large windows all around that adds lots of light. The floors are all Teak and Holly and lift for excellent access to her engine compartment. On starboard is the lower helm with sliding door for easy access to the deck for docking. All the way aft to starboard is her fully equipped galley. Forward to port is an L-shaped dinette with table that folds out to accommodate a group for dining. She has neutral colored tufted cushions and brass lantern hung above. There is a shelf outboard and additional storage under the settee. Next one will find the port side sliding door followed by the access to the Master Stateroom.
The Master Cabin has a centerline queen berth and plenty of space to walk around both sides. On the port side there is nine feet of hanging lockers as well as a bedside table with mirror. On the starboard side there is eight feet of drawers, storage lockers and a large counter top. She has a private head with large tub/shower stall, marble counter vanity and commode. Her lovely teak joinery continues thru the aft cabin but there are large windows here as well for light and ventilation.
Her engine room with the single engine drive has plenty of room for all the mechanicals and systems. All is well insulated and lighted.
The galley-up floorpan of the Monk 36 has remained essentially unchanged over the years. On deck the raised bulwarks and a high rail make movement around the house safe and secure. Additional features include a functional tabernacled mast and crutch assembly, a well arranged large flybridge with full enclosure, bow pulpit, swim platform and dinghy davits on this particular vessel.
Her interior design makes the maximum use of space available on a thirty-six foot yacht without encroaching on the walk around non-skid decks which is so important for both safety and handling. Her storage is unusually plentiful when compared to other trawlers in this size or even larger.

The Monk 36 has always been popular and has a strong following due to its durable and affordable classic trawler good looks. Her construction is solid fiberglass and the hull features a skeg-protected prop as well as an upswept, highly flared bow which contributes to her dry ride. Low maintenance fiberglass decks with some wood accents on the exterior is just enough to make her lovely without major upkeep. All in all she is a traditional trawler the combines high construction standards, great live-aboard accommodation, minimal maintenance headaches and economical all-weather cruising capability at a very reasonable price range.
