Richard Boland Yachts
A quote from Gerry Douglas, designer: "The target market for the 36 is couples and families who primarily weekend and vacation cruise but may be planning some extended cruising. They want a boat that is comfortable, offers reasonable performance, and is stable and predicable to handle. The boat suits their budget, and they can add gear for bluewater cruising.”
Affinity reflects the attention to equipment and comfort by the current owner. A special example of a very popular West Coast cruiser.
