F36 TriCabin

Great Cruising Boat! 


 1978 Trojan TriCabin yacht for sale. This is in good condition. The engines both run and start easily. In my opinion it is a great cruising boat. Smooth and glides through the water. At slower speeds up to 12-1400 rpm the fuel lasts a long time and will go very far. If you are in a hurry this is not the boat for you unless you have deep pockets. It will get up on plane but will drink the fuel like a bridle party in a bar. The boat has an aft cabin with 2 single beds and drawers and a countertop between the beds. The aft bathroom has a sink, vacu-flush toilet and a standing separate shower stall. Plenty of height in the aft bedroom for me to fully stand without having to bend over. I'm 6'4" tall. The salon has a deep kitchen sink, decent countertop space, and a stove/oven. There is a 120v new refrigerator only 2 years old for keeping the drinks and food cold, and the meats frozen. A custom bench has been made in the front port corner of the salon which saves on floorspace vs the couch that was there before. The table raises and lowers very easily and also folds out to make a larger table surface. Down 3 stairs from the forward starboard corner of the salon lowers you to the level of the forward V-berth and the half bathroom. This bathroom has a sink and another vacuflush toilet. Each toilet has it's own waste tank. The forward V-berth has lots of storage under the bed and in cabinets on the starboard side with the port having a door to the forward bathroom.

Up top, the helmseat is a captains chair on a pedestal. The steering wheel is oversized and super easy to steer which is what makes this boat so easy to drive. The window directly in front of the driver opens to let the air flow into the cockpit. There are benches to the port, aft and starboard of the captains chair with a teak floor for the cockpit sole.

Out side the doorway to the gunnels, is the hand rail that goes all the way around the entire deck at thigh height. On the starboard aft corner there is an opening on the starboard side, the aft starboard corner with 3 steps down to the swim platform which also folds down into the water for getting back onboard after a swim. The port aft corner also has a chain opening for boarding on the port side of the boat.

Walk your way forward and you'll find the ultimate prize of the entire experience of owning this boat! It's the forward facing seating on the bow of the boat which is the most popular place for everyone to sit and take in the sights! Here all you hear is the water being split by the bow slicing through the water! The seat has a wide bottom and back cushion and when this seat is not in use there is a seat cushion that slides into a track and then snaps down. People can sit on the fordeck and in front of the forward seat in chairs as there is plenty of room for that as well.

Overall this is a very comfortable boat.

This boat has two air conditioning units that blow the air and one main condenser unit in the engine room.   One is under the steps as you enter the boat which blows forward into the salon and aft into the aft cabin.   The forward unit is located under the starboard side of the bed cushions in the forward cabin.  Both blow cold or hot depending on your set point.   

This boat has an Onan generator which runs good but the fuel tanks must be above half full to make sure you don't run the boat out of fuel to run the generator.   It will shut off at half tank full.   However, from the *new* shore power switch, a foot length of thick wire needs to be run from the switch to the panel to use this power source.   Otherwise it works.   

This boat has a good enclosure.   I'm not sure of the type of canvas, but it's pretty weatherproof.   The eisenglass is strataglass and does not ripple or roll very easily.   The rear entry door needs a little stitching or zippers due to the zipper fabric tearing a little.   Easy to fix up.   It also has a cockpit snap on cover for when the eisenglass is folded down.


The fiberglass and gel coat are in very good condition for it's age in my opinion.   This cleans up nicely when washed and buffed.   There is a small 1 foot area on the port side where a boat which broke loose last summer rubbed on the boot stripe and made a mark last summer.   That boat sank so getting the owners of it to do anything about it has been hard to do.  

Here's what the boat needs... The power to the water heater has been cut as there is a short in the water heater that prevents the shore power from being energized. So the it needs a new water heater. Also the vacu-flush toilet system needs a service. It works, flushes but sometimes if the foot lever does not come back up and water will fill your tanks till it won't flush. So it's really just needing someone to fix that part. I'd bet a seal or two and a spring or something like that will fix it right up.

The boat was last used during the 2021 boat season. The owner has bought another boat and no longer needs this one.
