Awesome boat! This is a great opportunity to own an extremely well equipped and clean Pearson 36. Evolo has all the necessary gear for offshore use. Her inventory includes 17 gph Village Marine watermaker, 3kw genset, solar panels, Balmar high output alternator with three stage smart regulator, SSB radio, Pactor modem, and the list goes on. She has a nice sail inventory, a Wavestopper hard top dodger and her Espar forced air heat makes her a great choice for higher latitudes. If you are looking for a capable cruiser under $100,000, this is it. She has been plying the waters of the Pacific Northwest, but her owners have land based plans for the next few years and have decided to put her on the market. Evolo is ready to go.

Interior Accommodations

With two enclosed cabins, a single head, an excellent combination of sleeping accommodations, living space and a good sized galley, Evolo’s layout hits the sweetspot for a 36-foot capable cruiser. She sleeps up to seven;  two in the V-berth, two in the aft quarter berth, two in the convertible salon dinette and a smaller single on the port side settee.  Headroom in the galley tops out at 6-foot 4-inches with 6-foot 3-inches of headroom in the salon. Four easy steps down from the companionway deliver you to a warm nautical feeling interior with teak and holly plywood floor boards, dark blue ultra-suede interior upholstery that is accented with teak cabinetry and bulkheads. Overhead is white molded fiberglass and there is excellent natural light from two large overhead hatches and 10 larger opening port lights.

Vessel walkthrough, forward to aft

The forward cabin is a traditional V-berth. The bunk is plenty big and will sleep two comfortably. To starboard is a hanging locker with louvered door and shelf above. On the port side is a bank of three deep opening cabinets with a large shelf space above. On either side of the bunk, shelves are molded in for books or just about anything else. Forward above the bunk is a custom shelf fitted with an Axion TV/DVD player. Two DC fans keep the air moving in the enclosed cabin. Overhead is a large opening hatch and two opening port lights. Under the bunk is a water tank and storage space.

Aft of the forward cabin is the main salon. The C-shaped settee and salon table are to starboard with a straight settee to port. There is seating for up to seven people at the salon table and three more can sit on the port settee. The table itself lowers, converting to a large double bunk when needed. Outboard to port and starboard are cabinets with sliding doors with long shelves underneath. The space under the settees is mostly storage with additional storage behind the seat backs. There are a total of six large opening port lights in the salon (three on each side) and a large opening hatch above. Two DC fans help keep the air flowing.

Aft of the salon and to port is the side facing navigator’s station. This nav table is large enough to unfold a chart and provides storage under the table top. The seat swings out and can be tucked under the table when not in use.  All of the electrical breaker switches are accessed from this station as are the SSB radio, Icom VHF, computer screen and battery monitors.

Across from the nav table on the starboard side is the L-shaped galley. This is a generously sized galley for a 36-foot boat with a large and deep dual stainless sink. The engine is located under the sink space on centerline.  The fridge and freezer are large and top loading. The two burner stove has a counter piece that fits over and can be lifted and stowed behind the stove when the chef is at work. Outboard is a large cabinet with sliding doors with a shelf above.  The shelf has slotted compartments designed to hold plates, bowls, cups, etc.

Aft and to starboard is the enclosed quarter berth cabin with a double bunk. There is a large louvered double door locker with shelf space inside. The genset and watermaker are accessed in this cabin by removing false walls that partition the bunk from the technical space. This is also a perfect place to store spares and tools. An opening port light and small overhead hatch provide ventilation while a DC fan helps keep the air moving.

Evolo’s interior just plain works. She has excellent living space for her size and the accommodations are perfect while underway or at anchor.
