Monk Trawlers

Monk Trawlers were built in Taiwan to start with but have been built in Nova Scotia since 1992. This model was in production until 2007, with more than 250 hulls delivered to owners. Dot Calm’s hull was the 188th built out of 250. The 36’ Monk has become synonymous with quality, comfort, and fuel efficiency.  The Monk 36 has a solid fiberglass hull with a cored superstructure. This single screw trawler is a fuel efficient long-range yacht suitable for the Great Loop and ocean voyaging.  This vessel’s single Cummins 220-hp diesel has proved reliable and economical. The 18,000-pound boat cruises at about 1,700 rpms on its semi displacement hull, doing about 8 knots. That’s a fuel burn of less than 3 gallons an hour.

The designer, Ed Monk Jr., was the son of Ed Monk Sr., himself a naval architect and shipwright of note. Father and son worked together for many years on recreational and commercial craft. Monk Jr. established a reputation for designing rugged, dependable boats.


The Powerboat Guide touts the well-respected Monk 36 as a “graceful aft-cabin trawler” offering a mix of “simplicity, comfort and seaworthiness.” The bow is tall, and there’s plenty of freeboard from stem to stern. There’s a flybridge helm station (in addition to a lower helm in the saloon) that gives good sightlines around the boat. Wide side decks and rails all around are a plus for safety.

The aft cabin is the master stateroom, with its queen-sized berth offset to starboard and plenty of walk around space. This cabin is the reason so many cruisers choose the Monk 36. There is a large hanging locker to port and drawers and storage lockers on the starboard side. The adjacent head includes a separate shower. The aft cabin includes a recently added 42-inch Samsung flat screen smart TV.

The second stateroom is forward, with a large V-berth, in-suite head, drawers, lockers and hanging closet with plenty of storage.

The main saloon has a port settee and high-low table that converts to a double berth. The salon is finished in teak with teak and holly sole. Port & starboard sliding doors and larger windows all around provide great interior light. Aft the L-shaped galley is equipped with double stainless sink, full sized Nova Cool refrigerator/freezer, two burner cooktop, Magic Chef microwave and Insignia 19" TV.  All kitchen utensils, including plates, silverware and glasses are included.

DOT CALM has completed the Loop once already and is uniquely laid out with substantial storage for long distance cruising and is ready to make the trip again.
