WHY A CLASSIC?
It is interesting to note a myriad of cruising designs that fill the pages of boating magazines, now that cruising is in vogue. Some are good, some not so good, and a few are really bad. They come and go, and even the good ones have little more to offer than the designs of such great names as Hereshoff, Atkins, Angleman, or Garden, the excellence of which has been proven by hundreds of offshore passages in fair weather and foul. The reputation of these designs and their builders have been made by word-of-mouth whereever and whenever cruising deepwater sailors have gotten together for a gam and exchange of experiences.
A classic Angleman design has now been up-dated in fiberglass to provide the strength and ease of maintenance of modern materials which tdgether with today's advancedsail cloth and sailmaking techniques provides impressive cruising performance for fast passagemaking far beyond the original.
In response to the inherent appeal of this time-proven design, and because we recognize its virtues for long distance cruising we have proudly named this extraordinary example of the boatbuilder's art, the MAGELLAN 36. These beautiful yachts are built under the demanding supervision of our own inspectors by the Chung Hwa Boat Building Co. Ltd. of Taiwan whose excellent reputation of building fine yachts is as widespread as its world distribution of deepsea trawlers and sailcraft.
In addition to a revised sailpian we have incorporated many design features the experienced ocean sailor will appreciate such as dependable quality winches, bronze seacocks on all thru-hulls, stainless rigging, manual gusher type as well as automatic electric bilge pumps, a chart table at the navigation station, and much more that must be seen and experienced to be believed.
The purchase of a yacht represents a sizeable investment in which value received must be a prime consideration. We challenge any builder to provide equal value in a luxury yacht to match the quality of construction, the faultless teak joinery, the completeness of the standard inventory, or the integrity of the after-sale support of the MAGELLAN 36.
In the competitive world we live in it is only too easy to be misled by promises that remain unfulfilled, by prices too often distorted, and by warranty claims that remain unsatisfied.
We ask only that you review our record, check our specifications carefully to make valid comparison and make arrangements for a convincing demonstration.
We remain confident your ultimate choice will be a MAGELLAN 36.
The richness, beauty, and charm of the MAGELLAN 36 is fully expressed in the habd-carved door leading to the forward cabin. It is a work of art behind which is the owner's private hideaway complete with an ample hanging locker and drawers and bins for stowage galore. The extra large "V" berths can be made up into a spacious double by adding the filler cushion, and the entire space is light and airy with individual reading lights ands fiddle shelves for each berth. Another hanging locker in the salon forward of the bench settee allows for ample clothing accomodations. More stowage space under the settee is accessible by a bin and a long drawer while additional stowage is hidden away in nooks and crannies, readily available but unobtrusive.
