Pros:
Cons:



We have owned this boat 3 years and our sailing has mostly
been in the naraganset bay area of Rhode Island. We have recently
done some rigging refitting and are planing a number of other
projects in making this yacht ready for ofshore excursions.
so far she has exceeded our expectations.

Pros:
Cons:

Moderate displacement offshore cutter, modified full keel,
solid fiberglass construction. Canoe stern, spoon bow, bowsprit
Self-tending staysail on boom. Removable stay set to fitting
at the bow. Strengths: Excellent heavy weather performance
balanced by reasonable responsiveness in light air. Roomy,
comfortable interior with fine solid teak joinery. Works
surprisingly well to windward. Good tankage. Easy to handle
under sail. Weaknesses: Does not track well under power. Will
not back up in a straight line. A bit tender early. Original
holding tank is under the engine block. Overall satisfaction:
Very satisfied. This is a fine offshore boat, able to go anywhere.

Pros:
Cons:

Solid boat. Teak decks need attention, but well worth the effort. Very beautiful boat. Sails surprisingly well to windward if traveler is properly adjusted. Truly solid feeling in swells. Handles winds to 25 knots without reefing, but would be better with a single reef. We are busy re-rigging, and upgrading. Not a single regret. Elegant classic lines and first rate construction.

Pros:
Cons:

I owned a 1978 Tayana 37 for 10 years. During that time, I throughly enjoyed the boat even through the periods of light breezes that we have a the Chesapeake Bay. The boat is strong and is exceptional in heavy weather. In all of the time that I owned her, she never leaked and I always felt safe and comfortable regardless of the conditions. The boat is not a windward performer; you will never get to 26 degrees apparant wind as some fin keel boats can. She is a heavy cruising boat build exceptionally well.

Pros:
Cons:

New owner (less than 1 year) of a 1983 T-37 (glass decks). Sailed her from Tampa to Nova Scotia (ICW Beaufort to Hampton). Love every aspect of her! I Agree with all points noted and would also add that chainplate issues are a possible source of maintenance. Mine were identified in the survey and I plan on fixing them this winter.

Pros: solid build,heavy, long keeler.
Cons: needs reefing early

Our Tayana 37 'Tropical Seas' is our homr and have been based in Brighton marina,UK for the last two years. We are about to set off south for the Canaries via France,Portugal,Spain and Gib. We have cruised in her around the West of England and Brittany and have every confidence in her. She onlly has the original 3QM Yanmar installed but is a good 'agricultural' type engine which while only 30hp drives her at up to 7 knots! I feel she has to be reefed at force 4 but the upside of this is that she still sails in light airs!
She is a comfortable boat with good stowage and good tankage unlike a lot of modern boats which provide plenty of berths but not enough stowage. So, a good, sea kindly boat with six berths but very comfortable for a couple as a cruising home.

Pros: solid and seaworthy bluewater boat
Cons: weather helm if the rig isn't well balanced

Due partly to a large rig, the cutter version does remarkably well in light air, considering the boat's (rather heavy) displacement and wetted surface. Solid and seaworthy. Surprisingly tender - you'll need to reef in 12-15knots of wind to keep the weather helm in check.
