1982 Mao Ta 36 located in Florida for sale

36' Mao Ta 36

4' 6'

Description: For sale is a 1982 36' Mao Ta cutter. This double-ended boat is a rare find in that it was made from the exact mold used to produce the famous Hans Christian 36 designed by Robert Perry.
Before sailing her to Key Largo from the Bahamas I had the bottom scraped, and this boat sailed like a dream all the way home. She is currently sitting in the yard after having the bottom sanded and getting fresh bottom paint.
This boat will make a spacious and functioning home home with a little bit of work, but would be better served in the hands of a serious sailor. The boat is rigged very heavy and appears to have an after market french made mast and boom.
Ask any one that knows about the Hans Christian/Mao Ta 36' and they will tell you that these hulls are one of the most capable and respected offshore cruising vessels ever made.
Asking $19,000 o.b.o. Will consider a partial trade plus cash offer (I need a 20' or smaller runabout. I an pay to the yard for storage to round out a month for the new owner.
As we clean and ready the boat further I will update this posting and add additional pictures). To view the boat or ask questions, please email with the words "Mao Ta" in the subject line to help me avoid spammers or call 305.587.3770.

Equipment: Above decks there are seven good wenches, mainsail, Profurl roller furling and sail on the forestay, a hank on staysial the inner forestay, and a fourth sail I think is a spinnaker (have yet to take it out of the bag.
Since the original posting of this add the motor has been gone over. A list of the repairs are as follows: Racor cleaned, new filter and drain valve and fuel lines; new starter; new battery, new raw water pump and hoses; rebuilt transmission with one year warranty.
Additionally, new stainless cable on the steering.
The entire cockpit and top rail are all wood. The exterior wood is in need of sanding and oil. The deck needs some paint.
As for the interior, there is great wood and cabinets and closets and drawers and other storage everywhere! It appears that a good cleaning and some oil would do the trick to bring her back. If I am mistaken, then a quick scratch and a coat of varnish would do the trick.
As for systems, the boat has the following systems but I have yet to the test:
water pressure pump for the running water for kitchen sink, bathroom sink and shower (but it does run when turned on); refrigerated cold plate with an air cooled pump (it is either Danfoss or Alder Barber); propane stove/oven; hot water heater. A few of the interior lights work and there is also a working solar panel and a couple of house batteries.
