PRETTY PENNY - 36' PDQ Capella

(Close YouTube to return to boatersresources PRETTY PENNY Listing Brochure)

Introduction/Broker Remarks

PRETTY PENNY is in absolute gorgeous condition; you won't be disappointed.  And, she is not the traditional white color that all the other 36' PDQ's are.  She's more of a rich cream white.  Definitely attractive!  Note the custom Salon seating in the pictures.  The seating is VERY comfortable and more "living room" like than the stock standard square seating.  Yet very user friendly for table seating. 

PRETTY PENNY will NOT LAST LONG on the market.  Come see her and you will agree.  MOTIVATED SELLER!  MAKE AN OFFER!  Original Owners!  Never chartered.

Manufacturer Provided Description

PDQ stands for Performance, Dependability and Quality.  The superb design creates a stunning, airy interior offering privacy, a gracious entertaining area, and two luxurious staterooms complete with queen-sized beds.  She is ideal for singlehandling, perfect for family cruising, or two couples on a holiday.  

Every PDQ is hand-crafted with custom fitted cabinetry, incorporating the finest cherry veneers, teak accents and three coats of varnish throughout.  The PDQ36 is constructed of the highest grade 100 percent vinyl resins, biaxial knitted fabrics with Klegecell coring fused together under vacuum pressure.  The yacht is built with tremendous structural integrity, designed for severe sea conditions.  She has six watertight flotation tanks fore and aft offering unparalleled bouyancy and safety. All Sheets, halyards, and reefing lines lead to the protected cockpit, for ease of handling.  A PDQ will sit upright on her keels and rudders for convenient storage, a bottom scrub or beaching.  The interior space equals a 45-foot monohull, while speeds can match a 65 footer. The fine hulls slice through the water with refined smoothness, making an easy 200 miles per day.  Reach destinations faster than ever before, enjoy the near absence of heeling, feel the confidence of great stability no matter how fast she's sailing.  

The PDQ is designed for long distance voyaging.  From skeg rudder protection to heavy-duty rig, the LRC is rugged, fast and functional.  The Capella features twin Yamaha 9.9 4-strokes.  There are safety bars at the mast, davits for the dinghy and much more.  With the addition of our flexible aft cabin layouts (office, workshop, berths, or storage) this is the ultimate boat for true blue water adventurers.
