Pretty bombproof and overbuilt as was the design of that era.
Some TY37 boats are now showing up with chainplate base problems due to maintenance errors.

Other: Asian metalurgy is always of ''great question'' and ''wonder'' - original rigging of dubious quality. Many have black iron fuel tanks that rot from the underside if not maintained.

They sail quite well for a full keel design. Lots of owner comments, etc. on Sailnet Tayana eMail archives (use sidebar at left). Sailnet also has a Tayana ftp site:

How is the contruction on the Tayana? I have heard some have some problems due to the material used. I am looking at perhaps buying one when I get back for some blue water ops.

I would consider a Tayana 37,Cutter. I have one for 10 years, cruised Europe, Caribbean and the Atlantic coast. It is a perfect boat for live aboard and` offshore cruising. Besides, its the best buy on the market.
