C'mon, SD, lighten up a little.

Jake, we had an A37 in a neighbouring slip some years ago, the owner was very fond of her. His was a sloop, they were also offered as a yawl, I believe. Like all Albergs they have nice lines and full underbodies.

Relatively narrow, they will have less liveaboard space than more current designs.

The major negative for these types of boats is that they will be nearly impossible to back up in a straight line, and close quarters maneouvering will be difficult. Whether this is a big factor will depend on your moorage situation and your intended usage.
