Wonderfully spec'ed Rustler 36 delivered in 2013. She is the most recent to be built. She has been sailed up and down the East Coast of the US. A great alternative to new and ready to go!


Offered to co-brokers on a commission split of 50/50.

Broker's Comments

ADAMANTINE is hull 123 and is the last Rustler 36 to be built so far, and was sold by us as a custom order by her current owners. Very nicely spec’ed - it has a full teak interior, blue gelcoat hull, tiller steering and the larger engine.  


Since delivery, the owners have made many more upgrades, and the yacht is offered as a complete package with a tender. Since shipping over from the UK, she was based initially in Rhode Island, and then the Chesapeake area for many years. A year ago she sailed to Florida, where her owners now live.


Rustler 36s have become iconic and are the ‘must have’ yacht if you want to enter the Golden Globe Race; Rustler 36s were 1st, 2nd and 3rd last time, and about 9 have entered the next race.


A very special yacht and the newest you can buy, unless you order a brand new one.

Owner's Comments

Like all Rustler 36 owners, we love the boat, and have had many great sails on ADAMANTINE. The build quality is fantastic and we feel safe and secure on the boat in bad weather. We have now retired and moved to Florida, and so, sadly, now is the time to sell our beloved boat.
