Broker's Comments

Este barco combina la calidad de construcción del astillero Wauquiez con el diseño del arquitecto naval (con fama de la America’s Cup) Britton Chance. El objetivo en su día, era de poner en el mercado un barco fácil de gobernar, pero rápido: un crucero/regata. Según la descripción original el Chance 37 permite ceñir hasta 25º del aparente. Sin embargo es un barco que ofrece bastante espacio en el interior y en la bañera. Está diseñado para gobierno de caña, pero en éste ejemplar algún propietario anterior ha hecho instalar una rueda de timón, manteniendo la base de la caña como timón de emergencia. Se ve en este barco que está bien mantenido (el brillo del gelcoat, maderas bien barnizadas, sentina muy seca, etc.) Si hay que mencionar algo que mejorar es solamente la electrónica que es algo anticuado (¡pero todo funciona!). Bandera española, lista 7ª. Nota: se pueden considerar contra-ofertas.

This boat combines de build quality of the Wauquiez yard with the design of the reputed naval architect Britton Chance (who’s design won an America’s Cup). The goal in those days, was to bring to market a boat that was easy to handle but fast: a true cruiser/racer. According to the original catalog, she’s able to sail upwind up to 25º of apparent wind direction. Nevertheless, she is also a boat that offers a good deal of space inside and on deck. She was designed to be steered by tiller, but a previous owner has installed a wheel in this unit, keeping the tiller base for an emergency tiller. It is clear that this boat has been well maintained (the gelcoats shines, well varnished wood, bilge very dry, etc.) If something could be improved, it is only the navigation equipment that is somewhat out dated (but still works!) Spanish flag. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
