Glen-L 36 Series
The GLEN-L 36 SERIES consists of two different accommodation plans. The ASTRA and BARON feature an aft cockpit layout, the CAPRICE and DELPHIN have a midship cockpit with private aft cabin. The GLEN-L 36 SERIES can be built using one-off fiberglass methods or plywood construction using multiple layers of diagonal strips in the "cold-molded" method. However, the proper set of plans must be purchased as they are specifically detailed for only one method. For one-off fiberglass, select either the ASTRA or CAPRICE; for plywood construction, choose the BARON or DELPHIN. Whichever set of plans you purchase, the boat can be built with either a sloop or a ketch rig. Since our catalog space is limited, you might wish to order the GLEN-L 36 Series Study Plan for a more detailed description of this exceptional design.
The GLEN-L 36 ASTRA & BARON have what is often termed as the conventional layout for sailboats this size. However, on closer examination, one will see a spaciousness that is very unconventional. Because the GLEN-L 36 Series answers to no fickle racing rule compromises, there's plenty of beam throughout, enough in fact to provide truly usable pilot berths both port and starboard. Add to this a large drop leaf table with comfortable settees on each side, and there's plenty of room for lounging, additional berthing, or an all hands banquet.
The cook and navigator have been given special attention on the ASTRA & BARON. Placed out of the traffic flow, the well-equipped U-shaped galley will bring out the gourmet in the cook. Plenty of perishables can be stored in the huge top-loading ice chest. The double bowl sink is located near the centerline for positive draining on both tacks and there is space for gimballed range with oven. The navigator's station is directly adjacent to the companionway along with a roomy foul weather gear locker. There is room to spread out the largest chart plus navigation gear and electronics. The quarter berth can serve as a single while underway or a double while at anchor, and provides a comfortable seat for the navigator.
The forward stateroom provides privacy for two. Double hanging lockers are immediately aft, together with the spacious toilet room complete with shower. Cockpit and deck spaces aboard the vessel offer plenty of room for safety and easy handling of the rig and vessel. Side decks average 22" wide, while the cockpit has plenty of seating for lounging and entertaining. There's storage below for all sorts of sails and gear. If you look at all the ASTRA and BARON have to offer, you'll soon see just how unconventional these vessels are.
The GLEN-L 36 CAPRICE & DELPHIN feature a midship cockpit layout, unusual in a 36' boat. Whether your cruising requirements involve family, friends, or even charter use, this layout offers privacy not available in a conventional layout. Most notable is the private aft stateroom, accessible to the rest of the boat via an interior passageway. Two spacious individual berths with settee between assure comfort, while the roomy enclosed toilet room with shower is directly adjacent for convenience and privacy. Ample storage space is provided by a hanging locker and bureau in addition to cabinets under the berths.
Crew efficiency and comfort for extended cruises have been provided for. Quarter berths are located on each side of the boat; one for the navigator and another for the off-watch. Both are adjacent to the companionway and a foul weather gear locker. The navigator's station has a large chart table plus space for navigation gear. Careful thought has been given to the galley area and it's location. The efficient "everything-within-reach" galley provides a double-bowl sink, gimballed range, and large top loading ice box. The location is out of traffic and away from the ladder, but immediately opposite the comfortable L-shaped dining area as well as the navigator's station. Double hanging lockers with a second toilet/shower room serve the rest of the crew. A private double stateroom forward completes the layout.
Unlike other midship cockpit boats in this size, the CAPRICE and DELPHIN do not sacrifice cockpit comfort or deck space to accommodations. With its wide beam, a cockpit over 6' in length and width is possible with room for side decks nearly 2' wide. A handy bin below the cockpit sole is reserved for sails; ample motor access is provided from the passageway. For cruising privacy in a 36' boat, the CAPRICE or DELPHIN are hard to beat.
