Rustler 36

Well-proven go-anywhere long keel offshore cruiser

The Rustler 36 is a Classic in every sense of the word. Designed to inspire complete confidence with excellent sailing performance and quality of design and build. She offers roominess below to carry heavy cruising loads whilst giving her owners comfortable living conditions.

The combination of generous displacement, safe performance, and sea kindly characteristics makes her a very forgiving and confidence-inspiring yacht. The Rustler 36 features an immensely strong hull and deck mouldings which are laid up by hand to Lloyds Register approved specifications using Lloyds approved materials. A long, deep keel configuration gives her the kind of predictable and stable behaviour in a seaway that fin and skeg yachts simply cannot match.

The Rustler 36 offers a yacht which is designed to be sailed on long distance cruises with heavy loads whilst offering comfortable living conditions below deck.
