Runaway was finished by Jim Rockefeller of Bald Mountain Boatworks in Camden, Maine, and designed with good lines providing good looks. She has cruised to Florida, the Bahamas, and Canada, but mostly cruised along the Maine Coast. At one time she was considered the fastest of the 90 Newman 36s built. Her gas engines provide a quiet ride and good maneuverability, especially in tight places. For the past dozen years, she has been stored inside. For the boater looking to cruise, Runaway offers a terrific layout, good proportions, and a nice-looking flybridge cruiser at an affordable price.
