Noah 36 is a very good craft. Then, you take a look into the engine bay and it gets even better. There you have a pair of MerCruiser 6.2L V8!
We’ve seen many large ribs, but just a few stand out of the crowd in terms of design and construction care. The Italian boatyard Noah belongs to this happy few. 11.5 meters long and 3.82 wide, it is the flagship of the yard.
Noah 36 and MerCruiser 6.2L V8 is the perfect match
Noah 36 is the perfect rib to enjoy the sea, not just to show off. Size matters, but what impresses most is the space inside. It can host up to eight guests for the night, in the bow cabin, the room amidships and on the outer deck thanks to the night cover (kind of a camping tent).
Plenty of accessories are available, to grant full autonomy even on a long term cruise: microwave oven, grill, refrigerator, TV, generator, and a fresh water reserve of 350 l. Also the fuel reserve is relevant, with a double tank for a total of 700 liters: Noah 36 is good for long range navigation.
The helm station can be sheltered with a t-top (optional), not featured in the pictured boat. The cockpit can be a dining area thanks to the table and settees, while the two solariums don’t need any presentation as images say enough.
The large engine room hides the most interesting part of Noah 36: it’s the twin MerCruiser 6.2L V8 delivering a good 350 HP each. During our test in Sardinia, with Mercury Bravo III sterndrives, the Noah 36 and her five tons have reached 44 knots, with a cruise speed of 27 and a fuel need (at the latter pace) of 84 liters per hour total.
