The Storebro Royal Cruiser 36 was the smaller sister of the Storebro Royal Cruiser 40. At approximately the same width it was about one meter shorter. Due to the clever layout it nevertheless offered five fixed berths and two toilets. The boat was a very affordable family boat.
The construction of the hull based on the round bilge construction being used by Storebro.
Tests of the new hull started in December 1980. Because of the winter and ice and the fact that the results were not satisfying until then, boat testing had to be continued in spring. So, the Storebro Royal Cruiser 36 was ready to go in production in late 1981.
The original flybridge design shared the Storebro Royal Cruiser 36 with the Storebro Royal Cruiser 40. However, in many cases the lack of space of the flybridge was criticized. In 1986 a new enlarged flybridge version was presented for the two models 36 and 40. It offered more space, but took some of the boat's elegance.
The Storebro Royal Cruiser 36 was quite expensive to produce. Although it was about one metre shorter than the Storebro Royal Cruiser 40, the production costs were similarly high. For this reason, the Storebro Royal Cruiser 36 did not find a direct successor after the end of production.
The Storebro Royal Cruiser 36 with the construction number 2957 was the first ship with a shipyard-mounted aft anchor box. The system had been sold to the customer by Lennart Ivarsson and was developed by Johnny Lindblom. After the first season, the system was improved. With an additional GRP part that reached through the bathing platform, more space was created for the anchor chain. Later, this system was adopted for all subsequent series. The system was then optimally integrated with the new hulls of the SRC 380 and SRC 420.
