The Allied Princess 36, a long-keeled ketch, was designed by Arthur Edmunds and built in the USA by Allied Yachts.
The MkII was introduced in 1980, distinguishing itself from the earlier version by the addition of a bowsprit. Both versions were available as either cutters or ketches.

1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 16.4 suggests that the Allied Princess 36 will, in the right conditions, approach her maximum hull speed readily and satisfy the sailing performance expectations of most cruising sailors.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 34.7 means that the Allied Princess 36 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 309, tells us the Allied Princess 36 is clearly a heavy displacement cruising boat. You can load her down with all your cruising gear and equipment and it will hardly affect her waterline. Not an ideal choice for coastal sailing, but she'll come into her own on an offshore passage in testing conditions.
4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 30.4 suggests that crew comfort of an Allied Princess 36 in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of a moderate bluewater cruising boat - a predictable and acceptable motion for most seasoned sailors.
5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 1.8 tells us that an Allied Princess 36 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
