My wife and I lived aboard for about 6 years, then moved back ashore a couple of years ago. Since then, we've not spent nearly enough time on or with the boat.. and the poor girl shows it.

Structurally, she's still as solid as ever. But there are a lot of TLC items. The big ticket stuff is going to be a new fuel tank and new batteries. Engine always ran great (Yanmar 3 cylinder) so it's likely to be right where it needs to be, but it'll need a tune up and new fluids.

The headsail is tucked in a bag down below, and the mainsail is under a cover, so they'll be functional enough. Aft head has always been used as a hanging locker, the forward head is in good shape. There is a good refrigeration in the galley, but no A/C on the boat. (there is a massive manhatch forward that allows great ventilation.. and in a marina, there are lots of easy a/c options when needed)

Ground tackle is good.. lots of chain (200') plus as much 5/8 rope. 25, 35, and 45 pound CQR's have served us up and down the coast, and they'll stay with her. I'd always planned on trading the 45# off for one of those fancy new anchors, but never got around to it.

There's plenty more to talk about.. sailors and their toys, after all.

We are placing this add because.. well, we aren't doing her any favors. Boats and men rot in port. 37 feet was a fine size for living aboard, but it's a lot of boat for 'just having down at the marina to play with'. So we are either going to spend some money fixing ours up and sell for 'what it's worth', or just selling as a project boat for a lot less, but without the investment of our time or money.

If you are interested, shoot me a reply. Have a great day!
