Endeavor 37 ?????

Jeff Jeff, you out there.

Any thoughts on this fine lookin yacht. The main draw back I can see is the large aft cockpit.

Simon...my take...Nice, medium to heavyish production boats that were made just a bit better than most production boats of their day. Fairly slow but roomy and seaworthy. Typical problems found with blisters/deck delam and bad tanks so check those things caefully. Decent tankage for a boat this size.

We had two Endeavours in our family, One of which was a 37. I really did not like the boat at all. Build quaility was quite mediocre to poor, but my real gripe was with the Endeavour 37's motion. which was one of the most uncomfortable motion that I have encountered in my sailing career. Sailing ability was pretty mediocre as well.

Jeff when you mention the motion, could you be more specific as I have looked at chart comparisons with similar boats. The Endeavour 37 has one of the best capsize ratio (1.68) but motion seems to equate to (38.19) which seems slightly higher than the standard but not by much, the poorer the capsize ratio the better the motion?

As yachts more capable for ocean crossings seem to fit in the category of capsize ratio < 2.0 it would appear itís a trade off for safety at sea.

Hull speed is right up there with similar boats (7.34)

Simon...forget the #'s. They are virtually meaningless when it comes to comfort. I have riends with an endeavor 44 which is quite comfortable but slow...but hull speed is probably greater than the 37 based on waterline. ... and if Jeff says the motion on the 37 sucks...you can believe it. You can't pick a good boat for sea by the numbers.

I would expect a 44 to out do a 37 for hull speed, but it’s this motion bit that’s got me intrigued.
