This yacht has been altered to have most of the cruising benefits of the 362, without the loss of performance of the smaller rig. The new rig (mast, boom etc. as well as sails) is double-spreader, meaning there is no need for runners, making it as easy to handle as the 362's masthead rig, possibly easier in fact as the headsail is smaller. She has a lightly used hull in excellent condition, as is the interior, a new engine, new electronics, and lots more. Ashore in Hampshire.
The asking price of £38,000 is not a misprint.

The saloon has 6' 1" headroom and two settee berths 6' 3" long, with pilot berths outboard.
As few people now cruise 36 ft yachts with 9 or 10 people aboard (as might have happened when racing) the pilot berths for useful stowage - here cockpit cushions and a cockpit table are in them.
Following the considerable success of his one-design Sigma 33 cruiser-racer, introduced in 1978 as the first Sigma model, David Thomas designed the larger Sigma 36 in 1980/81 with the aim of repeating the success with a bigger version, though there was probably never any intention to market the 36 as a one-design racer.
The wide beam of the Sigma 36 gives spacious accommodation, including a large aft double berth under the cockpit. Like virtually all David Thomas designs, the Sigma 36 is close-winded and fast, yet is easy enough to handle and sail to make a good long-distance cruiser. 'Yachting Monthly' reviewed the design in 2001, commenting "....the Sigma 36 is beautiful to sail. There are not many yachts that can compare. She gives a huge feeling of security .... backed up by fabulous handling"
The Sigma 36 was later reworked into the Sigma 362 fast cruiser, with a detuned rig and a modified interior, with larger heads and an aft cabin separated by a door. This yacht has been altered to have most of the cruising benefits of the 362, without the loss of performance of the smaller rig. The new rig (mast, boom etc. as well as sails) is double-spreader, meaning there is no need for runners, making it as easy to handle as the 362's masthead rig, possibly easier in fact as the headsail is smaller.
The present owner (who is a marine engineer) installed the Beta 35 engine new in 2008, along with a new stainless steel fuel tank and other ancillaries. Engine hours are approx 600. The engine drives a 3-bladed Brunton Autoprop feathering prop with shaft drive and a dripless shaft seal.
Most Sigma 36s have a babystay and runners supporting the single-spreader mast, and a inner supporting wire for the babystay running down to the forecabin floor.
This was one of the reasons the "cruising" 362 version had a smaller masthead rig, dispensing with runners and the under-deck staying for the babystay as found in most Sigma 36s.
The new twin-spreader rig fitted here retains all the power of the bigger rig and does not need either babystay or runners. The whole rig, mast boom, rod kicker, spinnaker pole, furler and standing rigging was fitted in 2009, along with new sails.
