Designed by Alan Slater, the PDQ 36 Capella is a well-built nimble-sailing cruising cat designed for families and not for charter companies. Overall, 100 PDQ were built , making it one of the most successful cruising catamarans manufactured in North America. The PDQ 36 Capella is handsome in profile, partially due to clever styling with a cove stripe and portlights on the cabin trunk deflecting your eye from the high freeboard that is a feature of most cruising cats. The hulls are solid fiberglass below the waterline and cored with Klegacell foam above. The decks are also foam-cored, except in areas where high-load fittings are attached. Those areas are solid fiberglass. Her fixed keels make a great deal of sense and the rudders are foil shaped.

The interior plan is one of PDQ most appealing features. She has a practical arrangement that is well suited for extended cruising. Her saloon features a large Cherry folding table with comfortable wraparound settees and unobstructed visibility. Three steps carry you down into each hull. The starboard side features a full-sized chart table amidships and a large molded head compartment with a separate shower aft. The port hull houses the galley, which includes a two-burner stove and oven, double sinks and a generous amount of counter space. Aft to port is a cabin that is designed as a galley pantry and storage room. Her two double sleeping cabins are forward, side-by-side on the bridge-deck. These spacious cabins include queen berths with overhead deck hatches and large hanging lockers. Her head is extremely spacious and has a glass-doored, separate shower. Her overall interior finish truly is practical and very beautiful.
