37' Tayana Cutter


AQUA LIBRE Is a beautiful example of the popular Tayana 37 that shows great both inside and out. He owner has relocated to Hawaii and is transitioning from boating to surfing.

Designed by Robert Perry and built by the Ta Yang yard this yacht was so well received that over 600 were built. This seaworthy full keel cruising yacht can take you anywhere!

In a 1994 review Richard Sherwood wrote that the "Tayana 37 is in many respects ? perhaps except for the double-ended design typical of the many high-performance designs built today that retain a traditional appearance.

In a 2019 review, Charles Doane wrote, "the Tayana 37 is the most successful of the many Taiwan-built double-ended full-keel cruisers that were conceived in the mid-1970s in the wake of the great success of the Westsail 32. This boat is quite heavy by today's standards, but it sails remarkably well and can serve effectively as both a coastal and bluewater cruiser. It has a particularly strong reputation as an offshore boat and is certainly one of the more popular bluewater cruisers ever built. Reportedly at any given time there are more Tayana 37s out there wandering the globe than any other single type of sailboat.

Writing a review in 2012 Steve Knauth noted, "the Tayana 37 is distinguished most by its double-ended hull. The deep, full-keel bottom is designed for bluewater cruising, and the vessel?s 22,500-pound displacement includes 8,000 pounds of outside ballast. Construction is solid, hand-laid fiberglass. Designer Robert Perry drew up two twin-headstay rigs, and the boat was rigged either as a cutter or ketch. Both versions carry large sail plans the cutter more than 800 square feet, the ketch more than 750. They?re based on a high aspect mainsail for upwind work and twin headsails for versatility. The deck profile shows a traditional trunk cabin ahead of a roomy aft cockpit with pedestal steering and controls, surrounded by a high coaming. Bow and stern pulpits are joined by double lifelines with both port and starboard gates. There?s also a pilothouse deck plan with a protected steering station.
