Tayana 37

Hi there guys and girls. Anyone know anything about a tayana 37?

How do they handle. Obviously there are lots about and sailing the world.
Does this mean they make for good offshore yachts. My wife and I are looking to purchase a live aboard of about this size.
Would it be suitable.
Any advice greatfully accepted.

M&K ...they are lovely, seaworthy boats built to cruise anywhere. One of Perry's classics. Two things to be sure to cover on survey...condition of tanks if they are steel and condition of deck/leaks. Most T37's will have had these problems by now and been fixed by previous owners but these are the most common items other than blisters which are endemic among mid-80's and earlier boats.
The only negative comment I would have is that these boats are small inside which is the trade off for seaworthiness and if your live-aboard plans don't include blue water passages, you might consider something roomier. If they do include ocean passages...you won't regret having one. Note...mine is a T52 and we are most happy with the construction and overall quality and have several friends with T37's that have cruised extensively and been most happy with them.

Depends on whether you're looking just for a dock-side liveaboard or a world-class bluewater cruising boat to live aboard, while cruising. If you are looking for the latter, it's probably a good choice, but it may not work out so well as a "floating condo".

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I recall a woman named Wendy on alt.rec.cruising some time ago who bought a T37 because (being a woman!) she got a ton of advice on these boats, some of which I recall.

They are very seaworthy and easy to sail, so I recall, and nicely finished, but by today's standards, the "socializing" part of the boat is small. The stowage, by contrast, is ample.

The woodwork is supposed to be extensive and excellent. Whether this appeals to you is a personal decision.

They are heavy and are "get you home...two days late" boats. Slow and steady gets to live, however.

The main knock on them is the teak decks, I recall. They require tending and apparently can rot/leak/fail. But on the other hand, I recall that the boat's other qualities were such that replacing the entire deck (a VERY tedious and messy job) had been done by more than one T37 owner, because like Pacific Seacrafts, Island Packets and Out Islanders, they tend to be owned by people very proud of their boat's appearance.

Thus endeth all I know of Tayana 37s.

Tayana 37

Thank you for the URL for the Tayana. We are researching boats for an offshore retirement experience, and the Tayana is of interest.

If there is anything you know about the Tayana, we would be most happy to receive info. We currently own a 30' C&C coastal cruiser.
