The Sigma 36 is a well respected and solidly built cruiser racer. Following the considerable success of his one-design Sigma 33 cruiser-racer, introduced in 1978 as the first Sigma model, David Thomas designed the larger Sigma 36 in 1980/81 with the aim of repeating the success with a bigger version.
Although the design had an eye to racing it avoided the radical hull distortions to cheat the IOR racing rule that were popular at the time, and as a result the hull is a very elegant design giving speed on all points of sail with impeccable handling.
The wide beam of the Sigma 36 gives spacious accommodation, including a large aft double berth under the cockpit. Like virtually all David Thomas designs, the Sigma 36 is close-winded and fast, yet is easy enough to handle and sail to make a good long-distance ocean cruiser. ‘Yachting Monthly’ reviewed the design in 2001, commenting “….the Sigma 36 is beautiful to sail. There are not many yachts that can compare. She gives a huge feeling of security …. backed up by fabulous handling….”

‘Condor’ was purchased by our family in 2004. She was used for light cruising from then until 2011 (no racing) since when she has had a significant facelift. She is now in extremely good condition for her age.
We have priced her competitively in the hope of a quick sale. With the level of care, detail, time and money that has gone into her recently – at £25,000 someone is going to get a bargain!
We are amenable to negotiation regarding transport for getting Condor to wherever she is required to go in the UK and as we are only 40 minutes from Edinburgh airport (in North East Fife), we will pick up and return any prospective buyers from/to the airport if requested. We will also contribute up to £150 towards travel expenses for whoever buys her.
She has been refurbished to a high standard to be used by our family including our 2 young boys with a view to eventually being used by my grand-children! The work was almost completed when family circumstances unfortunately meant we needed to put her up for sale.
Our aim was to make a high performance, solid, ocean cruising/racing yacht a bright, airy and comfortable family boat. The interior has an uncluttered, light, fresh and contemporary feel and we’ve made a few changes to make life cosier and more accommodating below decks.
‘Condor’ is a great boat to sail, fast and responsive yet comfortably manageable by 2 people. The self draining cockpit is extremely comfortable and spacious. Having sailed yachts with wheel steering, I find the tiller a joy to use and I frequently found myself happily sat in the aft lee corner of the cockpit easily steering the boat one-handed or with my foot! Furthermore the tiller folds right back to an upright position making the cockpit so much more spacious when not at sea. (SEE PHOTOS)
Over the last 5 years we have done the following;
