Additionally, she has been always maintained by a Caterpiller trained mechanic.The listing broker sold the vessel to the original owner when new, as well as the current ownerand isveryfamiliar with this boat and owners.The boat has had very good care and shows very well!There are boats that help define a particular manufacturer and for Luhrs, the 36 Convertible, was just such a boat. The boat has great looks, innovativefeatures, good performance on the water and is ruggedly constructed.The one feature that sets this boat apart is the molded-in stairs to the flybridge. This was a hugely popular feature that makes access to the bridge easier and safer. But what made this boat a truly family friendly sport fishing machine was the totality of the design. The two stateroom interior was well laid out with an island berth in the bow and guest stateroom with upper and lower berths to starboard. You could also sleep another on the salon settee. There is a head with stall shower and a nice size galley with separate refrigerator and freezer.

Model History

The Luhrs 36 Convertible was produced in St. Augustine, Florida from 1998 thru 2007 and has proven to be one the manufactures most popular models. She was the first of a new generation of Convertible models for Luhrs incorporating stairs leading to the flybridge thus removing the vertical ladder arrangement common to sport-fish models of the day. Not only is this arrangement much more convenient, but it is also much safer for children, and yes, even pets! After a remarkable 10 year production run, the 36' Convertible as replaced in in 2008 by an all-new 35' Convertible.


Luhrs used tried and true construction techniques in the building of the 36 Convertible. The boats are made with E-glass fiberglass woven roving and polyester resin. The hull is laid up with a solid fiberglass bottom and the hull sides are cored with balsa above the waterline. The superstructure is solid glass with balsa cored decks. The stringer system is made of marine grade plywood and is completely encapsulated in fiberglass. The Luhrs product is designed for offshore use and is heavily built. The hull design features a double chine configuration and single lifting strakes port and starboard. The running gear is a conventional straight shaft design with bronze struts and rudders, Aquamet stainless steel shafts and Nibral (4) blade propellers. (There are no recesses or prop tunnels for the propellers)
