It looks like Fairfield Harbor in New Bern, NC. If so, what a coincidence. I bought a 1981 Prairie 36 in March from a couple in Fairfield Harbor.

Yours looks like it was well loved and in very good condition. The one I purchased was well used. However, the more I dig into it, the more I appreciate how well these boats were made. I'm doing a little demolition to make way for some improvements and that is requiring much more effort than the last Taiwanese boat I tore apart.

If someone is interested in this boat and needs another pair of eyes to go look at it, we keep our boat in Fairfield Harbor too and, with the seller's permission, could go do a walk-thru for you.

I had looked at the 36 you purchased before you. While I was considering it...poof it was gone. Enjoy

Did I miss asking price? I'm thinking about moving up to a 36 footer from a 30 footer.

When I looked at FOG's boat, i think this was the trawler across the way

Question: Is there any place to reasonably build in a washer/dryer combo?

Thanks!

In my boat there would be plenty of room in the aft cabin but mine does not have the centerline berth. Also, I believe all these boats came with flybridge and dual stations

I've seen several pictures of Prairie 36's and Atlantic 37's with a washer/dryer. On mine I would probably put it at the bottom of the steps to the aft cabin, outboard of the steps, where there's a current stowage locker. Here's a picture (from a 1981 P36, not mine.)


It could also go forward of the lower helm, in another locker, but (1) that would block access to the back of the controls, and (2) a lot of these had the forward head in that location, instead of on the port side like mine.

These boats are beamy and have a lot of interior space. Fitting something like a washer/dryer in would be easier on a Prairie than a lot of other similar-length boats.

Oh! Nicer place to squeeze one in than I was thinking. . .which was to cut out one side of a v-berth and turn the forward cabin into a laundry room

Is there any place to operate the boat and stay dry during a rain storm?

There is a lower helm. On our Prairie 36, there's also a full vinyl enclosure around the flybridge. We run from up there in all weather.

There is a lower helm as Capt Tom stated, right next to the Starboard side sliding door. I saw this as a plus when I purchased my Prairie 36 as I will be single handing it the majority of the time.
