Broker's Comments

The Oyster 37 is a Holman & Pye design. They were designed to comply with the 1 Ton rules; the result was a superb cruiser/racer with exceptional upwind performance. They have the Classic IOR lines and Oyster pedigree to boot.
The interior is very roomy and comparable with many more sedate cruising yachts. There is a good sized aft double cabin, a spacious saloon with galley and navigation station. Forward of the saloon is the heads and double fore cabin.
The Lewmar self-tailing winches and tracks are recent additions. The sail wardrobe is extensive with many good condition salis.
This yacht is in need of some TLC inside, in particular with regards to headlinings.The asking price reflects her current condition – you will not find many 37ft Oyster Yachts in this price category.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
