Re: Help With Boat Selection

A few things on the Tayana 37 since I've lbeen sailing offshore for the last 14 years. Any issues with this stout well founded offshore boat are well covered on line in the Tayana Owners Group (TOG) A great resource for you to check out. I'm not sure that the maintenance on this boat is any greater then any other boat except for the excessive teak....When I was a varnish snob it was way too much work. I've replaced most of the OEM equipment, the last item is the shipmate stove, which makes great bread by the way. Any boat that is of 70's vintage is going to have had most, if not all it's systems refigured/repalced/improved anyway...these are not issues with the boat itself, but more, wear and tear, use and just plain old getting worn out. I think if you find a well looked after, lightly used T37 you will have a yacht for a lifetime. BTW, we made the crossing from the Galapagos to Marquesas, about 3150 nautical miles in 21 days flat...not too bad for an old tank on a 30 foot water line. If you could find one with no bow tank, no teak decks and a newer engine then most of your problems will be minor. You'll want to rerig it of course, add some new sails and you'll be off on your circumnavigation sooner then you know it.

Good Luck!
