Designed by the renowned naval architect Robert Harris, this middle-sized member of his Vancouver series was built by the highly regarded Hidden Harbor Boat Works of Sarasota, Florida. Perhaps his most famous design was the big brother to the Vancouver 36- the Tayana Vancouver 42. The similarities between these siblings and their pilothouses is obvious.

Robert Harris was best known for his time as a designer for Sparkman and Stephens, working there from 1950 until 1957 and again from 1967 until 1972, when he opened his own design studio in Vancouver, British Columbia. He also worked for Grumman Aircraft, Robert Derektor  and was a pioneer in the world of multihulls; in 1948 he designed and built his first catamaran.   

Harris named his designs “Vancouvers”, with his first Vancouver being a 27’ pocket cruiser in 1973. The first Vancouver 36 was built in 1977 at the Durbeck in Sarasota, Florida. After several years, production was moved to the Hidden Harbor Boatworks yard next door.  

Harris’ intent was to provide a rugged uncompromising cruiser for sailors who want to cross oceans and travel the world. To that end, the hull’s layup schedule is 1 ¼” thick and has an impressive schedule of Airex core, mat and roving. Although not extreme by any measure, her distinctive shape, modern underwater configuration and powerful yet easily managed cutter rig provide remarkable performance and sea-keeping abilities. 

Vancouver owners tend to be fiercely loyal to their boats, which is one reason they seldom change hands. Our offering, “PROVIDENCE”, has had but two owners, each having cared for her lovingly. The first owner has been a regular source of information and assistance to the current owners, wanting to see his baby well cared for. Having fulfilled their obligation to do so, the current owners look forward to providing that same level of kindness and support to her new owners. Their plans include a complete orientation with the new owners.

She’s a wonderful little ship with classic looks and is built as solid as can be. She’ll keep you safe when you can’t. Sturdy. Dependable. A hidden gem. Every improvement that has been made has been catalogued, while the replaced piece of equipment’s information has been removed- to keep things proper. The insides of the lockers are all painted. The bilges are clean. The engine installation is a thing of beauty. A proper cruising boat that has served her past owners well. And now she’s ready for her next caregivers. Call and make an appointment to see her today!
