Vancouver 36 Review: Smaller Version of 42 Tayana

Filed under: Reviews — Tags: , , , — Richard Jordan @ 2:47 am

Vancouver 36 PDF Brochure: A Tough Lady (Click to Download)

In 1972, Robert Harris opened his own design studio in Vancouver, B.C when he left Sparkman & Stephens. He branded his designs “Vancouvers.” Harris started with the 27 Vancouver, a nice pocket cruiser. According to Andrew Dandridge, Harris originally designed the wooden 27 for a Vancouver couple to sail to New Zealand. In 1974, Dandridge’s father, the owner of Pheon Yachts, secured Harris’ permission to produce the 27 in the UK and built a wooden 27 called Strider. Then, Pheon made a mold and went into production. During the same period Harris designed for Pheon a 32 Vancouver. Later, Ta Yang out of Taiwan would produce 32’s along with Pheon. With the lessons of the 27 and 32, Harris moved to the 36 Vancouver. This is a no nonsense tank – a boat that is meant to go places. Just slip the dock lines and head for the horizon. Continue reading “Vancouver 36 Review: Smaller Version of 42 Tayana” »

"Dear Jordan Yachts - I write with great appreciation for all that Tom Harney has done for us. My wife and I have just purchased our first cruising boat and we plan to sail for a couple of years in the Caribbean with our three small children. Tom has been so much more than a broker and his experience, dedication and commitment to Jen and I have gone way beyond our expectations. In many ways, he is like an “adopted” father who is looking out for me his “adopted” son as we moved into uncharted waters. There have been countless examples of his "above and beyond" execution from our first phone call to ultimately closing on the boat. For example, the official closing of the paperwork could have been the closure of the transaction but to Tom, he was much more interested in seeing that we properly outfitted the boat and provided many recommendations from his 30+ years in the marine industry of who to use and what equipment is needed. In addition, he personally got involved in managing the outfit of the boat well beyond the official closing. Words can't express our appreciation and I would welcome any inquires from potential clients as to the positive experience with Tom Harney - On behalf of my family, a sincere thank you --- www.loveatfirstsail.com" - Marc Konesco s/v adagio
