Designed by David Thomas and sold in fairly large numbers through the 80s, the Sigma 362 was a cruising version of the successful Sigma 36 racer. She is one of the first Sigmas to have a modern double aft cabin layout, and yet retains most of the performance and all of the superb handling that makes all the Sigma yachts sought after. This particular boat is presented in very good condition, she is fitted out to the highest specification and fully complies with the MCA Code of Practice Category 2.
Sailing Today described the design as a modern classic, and said "The Sigma 362 achieves an admirable balance between creature comforts, sailing performance and good looks, which is about all that I'd ask for in my ideal cruiser".
All viewing by prior appointment please call - Phone number removed - or an appointment. (Please note we are closed Sundays). The boat is afloat in Chichester Marina close to our office.
