THE LANCER 36 is a sloop-rigged, blue water sailboat with a fin keel and spade rudder. She was designed by Bill Lee to be a solid performance cruiser. The deck layout and hull profile say performance, but go below and you’ll find a remarkably roomy, bright and comfortable teak interior that would satisfy most any couple or family looking to cruise with some measure of speed under sail. As a testament to their prowess, several 36s have sailed — and WON! — the Trans Pac race. She sails like a DREAM!

The Lancer 36 has a terrific cruising interior with accommodations for six. The V-shaped main cabin forward is very well ventilated, very bright, incredibly spacious, seats 8 comfortably with the teak dining table opening to serve dinner for 6. The settee opens to provide two large single berths on either side of the table. (Note, some owners have removed the dining table to create extra-large, king-size sleeping accommodations!) A small hanging locker has been converted to include 2 shelves with drawers under to port and attractive teak lockers and shelving abound outboard of settees port & starboard.

A large head is aft to port, featuring a separate stall shower and access doors to both the main cabin and master cabin. Aft of head to port is the private master cabin with double berth, hanging locker & storage under. Aft to starboard is a nav station and double quarter berth.

Across to starboard is a fabulous cruising galley with lots of storage for dishes and cookware. There is exceptional cold/freezer storage that is extremely reliable. Enjoy preparing meals in the galley while taking in the scenery from the eye-level port holes

The extra-wide companionway with only three steps into the main cabin allows the chef in the galley to easily converse with guests in the cockpit. If you have a dog … you will LOVE the ease of mobility between cockpit and interior! The cockpit seats 8 in style with a teak table and cup/iPhone holders that accommodate 4+ for dining.  The cockpit is designed to be as comfortable when heeling or at anchor.

All in all, Never Say Never is a delight to sail and cruise.
