There are a few other threads on here that discuss this, but does anyone have a good idea of all the differences between a J37 and 37c? I know engines are mounted in different places.

Are there other material differences? Does the J37 have a larger cockpit? How much larger?

I am interested in these boats or at least the J37c. I would not pretend to be an expert on them, but I think the main differences are the engine placement, the draft, and a more 'lush' interior in the C version. The J37 is slightly faster but I suspect this would be going to weather only because of the deeper keel.

From sailboatdata.com:

J-37C: Based on the std. J/37 but a longer coach roof, modified interior (larger galley, etc.), larger anchor well and engine re-postioned aft. Also available with a winged 'UFO' keel. (Draft:5.2')
The hulls and layouts appear otherwise very similar..

I have only been on a J37c so can't make a direct comparison. We are looking for a boat for a couple with up to 6 people for daysails, the 37c seemed perfectly adequate for that.
