selection 37 info

hello evreyone, i'm looking for a sailing boat to buy, and a felt on a selection 37 from Jeanneau and the price look pretty much affordable.. The selection 37 is a onwer version, and why these boat are relatively cheap, compare to other's? I'm not a great sailor, and accordingly to some web sites, the boat is a race for coastal used only? Apparently to pilote the selection 37 you need to be at least 4 on board? Do you think the selection 37 can be use as les expereince sailor, do you think i can use the selection for outer sea?

In general when the boat is that big and the price that small they tend to be a bit worn out

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Selection 37 Sailboat JEANNEAU shipyard, boatbuilder for sailing : sailboat, dinghy, powerboat racing boat cruising fishing yachting

There is some info on it, including a brochure, owners manual etc. From the looks of the info, at 7500 lbs for a 37' boat, it is light and fast for its time! Hence why one may need or want 4 people to sail it. Interior is typical Jeanneau for the time, NICE compared to other brands.

You might also post your question at jeanneau owners network - Home and see if any one has sailed one on the owners site forum.

Looking this boat over a bit more. Then looking at some of your posts. frankly, the boat would go where you want it to go....... now will you like the boat?!?!? I doubt it. IT was used off shore for racing etc in its day, it appears to be a thoroughbred high tech boat from its time, it will still be a very fast boat today. Altho looking up the phrf numbers, at 90-105 not as quick as some current boats of that size........

This may be a bit more boat than what you want. Tommy or I would probably enjoy the boat for how we use our boats, you cruising......probably not the best boat on the market.

If you do like the Jeanneau brand, look at the sunshine model from that time, a Tony Castro design, a bit heavier, and probably an easier boat to handle. If my Arcadia, a 30' version is anything like the SShine, this should work very well for you needs. There are a few other Jeanneaus that would work also from that time, price etc.

Agree with Marty... this is a RACER/cruiser not the other way round.

It's a sexy looking boat that is probably a bit of a handful but also probably quick enough by it's day's standards. The dual companionways are interesting but the interior is rather spartan and the galley very compact. I don't think she'd make a good primary cruiser compared to some of the other models available everywhere...

thanks for your reply guys, I was looking also for the Sun shine 38 of 1986 and apparently they said there was a problem on the hulls because of osmose and the fabrication was too fast,
The specification of the Sun Shine 38 is good, length 38ft, and the width 3m80 which is quite large. I have been looking for boat for about 6 months, and to be honest can say which boat gonna sails with....
at the moment i'm in the Indian Ocean, and moving to Comoros island in two month time.
also do you know a boat called Jouet 37?

ISULELLA EST A VENDRE - Le blog de ISULELLA

what do you think
?, the boat is in Mayotte.... vrey close to comoros island.

From what I've heard the Jouet's were well built boats, contemporaries of the Beneteaus and Jeanneau's of the times.

This one has had a lot of work done, it looks bright and cheery but you'd need to have a real good survey to see that the (extensive) work was properly done. For instance the before and after shots of the aft cabin show significant removal of partial bulkheads... may be fine may not. (my French isn't good enough to get all the details)

Would a surveyor be available in that region? Any boat that's been so extensively reworked probably needs an extra cautious checkout.

I spoke to the propio and he said the only problem with the Jouet 37 was the engine which was broken, but now has change for a new one Betamarine, he showed me the worked as from this web site.
I look for a Surveyor, but now available Indian Ocean, even look for one in Madagascar.
Currently now don't really know what to do,
there was boats in US, which was good quality and good price, again my problem is to bring the boat frist to Mauritius indian ocean, then Comoros island, with a low budget....

tell me "faster" what do you think about this one Photos de JAUNE

catamaran 10m68 length and 6m40 width, peoples said as my region is hot and humide i will have problem with this catamaran???
