I had the opportunity to run one for a 4 day round trip. It handles and sails very much like a 361 which is predictable and easily done single handed. They require attention to trim in order to point well but will do a broad reach all day long without a whimper. They stand up well in stable winds up to 20 kts before you need to reef. Comfortable cockpit and good room to walk about on deck. Huge cockpit locker. Good visibility from either side of the helm. Takes quite a bit before they'll pound. When they do you'll feel confident as it'll take it all day long. Runs 7 kts under power and equal to or faster under sail depending on winds. Takes a very light touch on the wheel to keep her tracking straight. Down below is roomy for a 37'er. The head has to be the biggest we've ever seen on a boat that size and even many 40 something footers. There's a nice area in the shower for wet foulies, etc. Comfortable roomy berths. Good size galley too. We had a 361 and if I closed my eyes when sailing I wouldn't have know the difference. They're nice boats so if you have an eye on one I'd move forward with confidence. No know problems that I'm aware of. Where are you looking?
