Recently a couple chartered a Monk 36′ for three days to complete their Basic Powerboat Standard.
It was my first time teaching on a Monk 36′ and I was impressed by the construction and handling of the vessel. This is a single engine trawler equipped with a bow thruster.
The vessel has an island queen berth in the aft cabin with its own head and separate shower stall. The port side boasts 9′ of hanging locker space with drawers and lockers to starboard. A washer/dryer unit is in a locker in the aft cabin.
The main cabin includes a galley, dinette and lower helm station. I liked being able to see around the vessel while seated at the dinette. Having the galley and dinette on the same level keeps the cook in the conversation circle as well as ensuring good lighting. The galley features a three burner propane stove with oven, double sinks, and a full size fridge/freezer.
The forward cabin has its own head, good sized hanging locker, drawers and lockers under the v-berth.
The boat was very comfortable for the students and myself. It is available for charter in the area. Please contact me for further details.Tags:Monk,Powerboat,Review,trawler
