36' Union Polaris


The Union Polaris 36 cutter is a well proven design that can be cruised with confidence and comfort. Whether going out short handed or with the family, the Union Polaris 36 is a design proven dependable by over twenty years of plying the seas in all weather.

The Union 36 is based upon a 34' Bob Perry design that was drawn for Hans Christian.  Hans Christian later changed the design to 36' which was continued to be built by Union Yacht Co. after Hans Christian moved to another yard.  In short the Union Polaris is the overbuilt traditional double ended ocean cruiser that one would expect from a vessel with these lines.   This design has a traditional spacious interior with excellent storage, comfortable accommodation; long range tanks and is nicely finished in teak.  This vessel was described by Practical Sailor as a "Tank Trimmed in Teak".
